If you have been collecting watches for a while I think you’re going to appreciate the following timepiece. I am pleased to offer for sale this 100% ALL ORIGINAL pocket watch features ORIGINAL steel engraved DIAL, SIGNED PENTAGON CASE and signed original pocket watch QUALITY 21 JEWELS movement with THREE FINGER BRIDGE, THREE RAISED & SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL, SWAN NECK MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUED BREGUET HAIRSPRING and ENGRAVED by the craftsman later that was made by the venerable GRUEN Watch Company to ca 1920’s.

 

 

The sunken ORIGINAL steel engraved DIAL features 60 minute checkered outer track border, gold steel raised& applied Arabic numerals, original blue steel Breguet-style hands and a separate sunken sub-seconds dial with 60 second outer track, elegant black Arabic numerals and "sweep" original blue steel seconds hand. The dial is decorated QUALITY FLORAL ENGRAVING in the centre. Signed GRUEN – VERITHIN below the 12 and PRECISION above the sub-dial.

 

 

The three-piece, PENTAGON form case is ORIGINAL and was made especially for GRUEN and is in great condition.

 

The movement comes in a nickel open face case. Turning the watch over I note that the back lid, with ENGRAVING, is nice and clean. The original Onion-style winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The inside of the outer case lid is stamped GRUEN VERITHING – PENTAGON – 14K GOLD FILLED – REINFORCED – with EXTRAGOLD – WADSWORTH and case referent number #3,050,740. The case is decorated HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING.

 

 

Peeking inside I find a spotless, a finely and HIGH GRADE, gold-finished QUALITY 21 JEWELS MECHANISM with THREE FINGER BRIDGE, THREE RAISED & SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL, SWAN NECK MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUED BREGUET HAIRSPRING.

 

The bridge holds the escape wheel is furnished with an ANOTHER STEEL END PIECE. This end piece is used to minimize the axial clearance of the wheel arbor and enhances the precision of this important element of the escapement. End steel also protect the stuffs from dirt and dust.

 

The number of jewels used in watch movements increased over the last 150 years as jewelling grew less expensive and watches grew more accurate. The only bearings that really need to be jeweled in a watch are the ones in the going train - the gear train that transmits force from the mainspring barrel to the balance wheel - since only they are constantly under force from the mainspring. The wheels that turn the hands (the motion work) and the calendar wheels are not under load, while the ones that wind the mainspring (the keyless work) are used very seldom, so they do not wear significantly. Friction has the greatest effect in the wheels that move the fastest, so they benefit most from jewelling. So the first mechanism to be jeweled in watches was the balance wheel pivots, followed by the escapement. As more jeweled bearings were added, they were applied to slower moving wheels, and jewelling progressed up the going train toward the barrel. A 17 jewel watch has every bearing from the balance wheel to the mainspring barrel jeweled, so it was considered a 'fully jeweled' watch. In quality watches, to minimize positional error, capstones were added to the lever and escape wheel bearings, making 21 jewels.

 

The movement is signed GRUEN WATCH Co – VERITHIN – PRECISION – TWENTY-ONE JEWELS – 8 EIGHT POSITIONS TEMPERATURES – SUISSE. Also it signed the movement serial number #530,095.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the Original magic GOLD-FILLED GRUEN movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch and has been in addition updated and engraved by the craftsman. Each part of the mechanism, each millimeter it is decorated by a magnificent magic ornament.

 

 

Diameter (with crown):        50.00 mm
Diameter (without crown):   43.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:       38.00 mm
Thickness:                           10.00 mm

 

This beautiful and fully restored men’s watch winds and sets smoothly while keeping accurate time.

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
