Hailing from the glittering 1960s this Gruen Precision 17 Jewel Gold-plated Dress Watch is a fantastic piece to add to anyone collection. Gruen, the famed Swiss-German watchmaker, has crafted timepieces that ooze elegance and precision since 1894. 

This Gruen Precision watch houses a meticulously crafted 17-jewel movement and is encased in a dazzling gold-plated exterior. Jewels in watchmaking aren’t mere decoration; they serve a functional purpose—reducing friction to ensure the longevity and accuracy of the timepiece. The classic silver dial is a timeless style, accented with gold markers and hands that dance gracefully around the face of the watch.

Adorning your wrist with this Gruen Precision watch is a nod to the craftsmanship of yesteryears.
