    $20 Gruen Autowind

    I found a watch display at a local antique mall and could not leave until I spent a little money. It's a 36mm 480 motion Swiss Gruen. I believ it would be from the 60's? The strap is not my style and the some of the gold has rubbed off, but she is keeping very good time.

    Well, it has been 24 hours since I bought and and put this little watch on my wrist, she at +27 seconds so far. Hopefully she slows down just a little.

    Maybe try resting it on its side when you take it off overnight.
