    A lovely watch, although the bracelet seems a bit bulky for the watch.

    BTW: valuations are not allowed.

    I look at my wrist more often to see my Rado than to tell the time.

    PS. Watch Those Doorknobs.

    It looks like a modern, gold plated watch. If so, it has no major intrinsic value. Better pics and pics of the movement would tell more.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Yes, this is a modern "Gruen" with a quartz movement ...

    The watch is just gold-plated and has no great value.

    Note that this "Gruen" watch bears no relation to the original Gruen Watch Company which effectively went out of business in 1958. The current Gruen (M.Z. Berger and Company, located in New York) merely purchased the rights to use the Gruen name.
