Gruen Curvex GSC10-2

You may recall the recent offer finished in gold that was pounced on almost immediately. Here is another instance of a rare build, not only because only a handful are known to exist in the world, but that the watch had at best limited distribution. This quantity has been maintained at the factory until now! This new-old stock Swiss Curvex is a magnificent example of sapphire sculpting. The 316L steel case houses a Swiss quartz movement and measures 26mm x 38mm which is fairly large given that it is a fancy shaped case. The polished case finished in yellow gold curves to the wrist with goldtone dial featuring raised arabic numerals. The case back is hand set with screws on the corners. Note the angles wrought into the obverse side of the case and compare the crystal. This is a thick perfect sapphire rectangle that has been sculpted so compliment the case angles, true art as it has been achieved without obscuring or distorting reading the time or dial outlay. The finished work is presented on a fine 8” leather strap and tested to 3 ATM water resistance. The msrp was slated to be 1295.00. Reserve yours NOT pre-owned and with full factory warranty with fresh battery for just 179.99, shipping included!

Gruen Vintage Curvex

Those who know Gruen know one of their most endearing and enduring models is the Curvex. Beautifully art deco, this piece is without a doubt classic, withstanding the demanding test of time. And we landed some new old stock. These are NOT preowned, but date back roughly a decade or so. You may see some light shopwear (common with new old stock) but all in excellent condition and in very cool packaging. This Swiss made Curvex measures 45mm x 19mm and contains Swiss quartz movement. Built in 316L steel, the case and dial arabic numerals are finished in gold layering. The engraved back is hand set with screws and is curved to match the top, and so is beautiful on the wrist. The finished work is presented on a fine 8” leather strap and tested to 3 ATM water resistance. We have to our knowledge the only examples that are factory fresh and not from private collections. Reserve yours now via TAW for just 199.00, shipping included!

Gruen Swiss Made Diamond and Mother of Pearl Chronograph

Frankly, this is one of the most aesthetically beautiful watches we’ve ever uncovered. Gruen declares this build 100% Swiss made and hails from an effort by the brand to capture a share of the high end market. Indeed the work does showcase Swiss precision and craftsmanship. This 39mm unisex watch is crafted in 316L steel and heavily layered in 18k yellow gold. 45 diamonds, each G/H color and SI 1/2 clarity (in other words, nice diamonds) are prong set into the bezel. It’s worth noting that many brands won’t talk about diamond quality and the fact the Gruen does speaks to their effort to tap the higher end market. Eleven diamond markers utilize gold layered cup settings, with the hands and subdial frames also finished in yellow gold, across a stunning white MOP dial. Pushers and crown and decorated with blue cabochons. The Swiss quartz movement delivers the chronograph complication as well as quickset date at the 4 position and day complication on the sundial at the 6 position, all protected by a domed sapphire crystal! Engraved back is hand set with screws. While we’ve not been able to confirm this, the manufacturer has suggested this may have never been released. Presented in fine leather strap with custom deployant buckle, the finished work is tested to 30M water resistance. List was set at 2995.00. We have only a handful for those who act quickly at just 299.00, shipping included! Congratulations to those who act in time; you will love this watch!
