    I've seen a few of these over the years, always a Gruen and always the Canadiens logo on the dial.

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the association was or why these were produced.

    The one I saw yesterday was a 1960s steel cased hand wind with a red second hand and the dial had the team logo above the 6 o'clock and under the 12 o'clock was Gruen Precision 17 Jewels.

    I've seen one with the Leafs logo also. I suspect that in the 60's, the Gruen management of that time was desperately trying to generate sales of any sort as the company was going downhill fast.

    Interesting point about trying to sell watches MINI.

    Doing some searching online I've also found a Bruins, a Canucks and a Toronto Metropolitan Ice Skating Schools Hockey Division. All the same model and design.
