Mens Vintage Gruen Curvex 17 Jewel Mechanical Wristwatch
This vintage men's Gruen Curvex wristwatch with a 17 jewel mechanical movement and 10k gold filled case is a classic and very collectible timepiece.
The dial is marked Gruen Curvex as well as Precision and Switzerland.
The case is 1 7/16 inches long from the tip of one lug end to the other lug end.
The top edge of the case back is marked Gruen 10k gold filled.
The inside of the case back is marked Cased and Timed in USA by Gruen Watch Co.
The movement is marked Gruen Watch Co., Curvex, Precision, Pat., Switzerland as well as GXC, 370 and the serial number.
As can be seen in the photos the dial could use a refinishing but the crystal looks like brand new.
Servicing will be needed which may be a minor thing. The stem does not seem to engage the winding mechanism. Whether the stem is pushed in all the way for winding or pulled out it sets the hands. When rocking the watch back and forth it does seem to run but since I can't wind it I can't say if it will stay running.
