Re: Gruen Verithin Pocket watch (By: GeneJockey)
It looks like a nice watch and, fortunately, it takes a round crystal so it will not be difficult to replace the bad one. The 17 jewel watches with no jewel in the center are inherently interesting because a performance decision was made that the cap jewels on the escape wheel were more important than the center jewels.
The case is really wonderful because of the inscription. You need to do some research and find out who won the second award in the College Humor Cartoon Contest in 1930. That was, after all, the height of the depression and it would have been difficult to find humor or stay in college.
