I recently acquired a Gruen pentagon pocket watch with a V4 VeriThin movement (17j, adjusted to 8 positions). Its movement serial number is 519067, and its Wadsworth case serial number is 358864.

I found this at an auction house and won it when the Omega no-name went quickly over of my estimated value. (what I figured I could get away with paying for another watch without my wife finding out)
I really liked the face of it and the engraving on the back "Cased and timed by Precision...
I recently received my Cosmos clock back from Michael Holman at Curt’s Clocks. He did a great job overhauling and cleaning it up.
I bought the clock last November at a Local 139 one day sale. It would run for a few hours and then stop. Just needed a good cleaning and the bellows...
I've reviewed some Gruen promotional material from 1936 announcing the release of a 15j men's gold-filled "Victor" wristwatch honoring the actor Victor McLaglen. Gruen concurrently released a women's version named "Victoria".
I'd like to acquire the men's "Victor" version. I'd give some...

It's a rather simple table with the Caliber number, movement Quality...
I purchased a 16s Gruen 21 jewel pw this weekend with 'chronometer balance' marked on the movement. So, is the the movement of chronometer grade? There is a great deal I do not know about pocket watches and even less about Gruens for I prefer American watches. Serial number 131445 with CD&S...

Picking up this watch. Said has a 17 jewel 435 gruen movement with faceted crystal. Original face and hands. Anyone know date or any information/history about this watch? Help and knowledge appreciated, thanks.
This Gruen 17 J Precision Verithin (V4) is a heck of a nice clean watch, and it runs great for about 12 hours, then slows way down. Also, it does not feel quite right, when winding it.
I am certainly going to add a 19 J Verithin and maybe even an Ultra Thin to my collection in the future, as I...
