• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

Attaching a picture of a Gruen watch. It measures 28mmx33mm. Looks small compared to other mens gruen watches that are round that I have. It was advertised as a Mens watch, but looks more like a womens watch to me. Anyone know for sure? Expertice appreciated, thanks.

Hi Popeye, my guess is that it was released as a man's wristwatch. Even though it is rather small at 28mm, men's watches back then were small. Another clue is the sweep seconds hand, very few ladies watches back then had that feature. One exception is a nurses wrist watch.
