Gruen Flip Top Veri-Thin Precision Watch

$1,895

This is a great looking vintage Gruen Flip Top watch that winds, sets, and runs great, and keeps excellent time.  It is a fine example of this era of men's dress watches.  It is quadruple signed on the case, dial, crown, and movement.  The movment has just been serviced as well.  The button below the 6 position allows the top to flip up, and holds it in place until the owner decides to read the time.  It opens in a similar fashion to a hunting case pocket watch.  It is a difficult to find watch, and even more difficult to find an example in such good condition with NO BRASSING, and flip top working perfectly.
