An expert described the emerald to confirm daughter's opinion with the 3 fine diamonds as top grade worth more than the 3 diamonds. Mae West was a critically expert colector of jewelry and got the birthstone emerald to replace unknown original. A fine gift 1976. Her 1933 photo; age 35?
I know this 17L pocket watch looks like a Gruen, but other than the Veri-Thin designation on the movement(and yours has a "-" separating the model name) there is no Gruen name or DG&S stamp I can see. Same for the dial. It is the retailer's name I'm sure.
This seems very unique to me after following all your posts and looking at a bunch of pictures over several Forums about these Gruens you like so well(me,too!!)
It seems to me the name should be somewhere on the movement. Had you noticed this before?
Am I missing something?
FWIW, the first successful mass-produced American 30-hour watch had(or more properly still has) a metal dial not terribly unlike the ones often associated with mid-1850s English watches-i.e. it is gold with an elaborately detailed center section.

Serious collector of American pocket watches-Waltham(and the predecessor companies) is my specialty.
Mine differs from the other one in that it is a true Hunter case, a large 10s or small 12s. COA will confirm measurement of pillar plate.
Would love to see an example that DGruen was paying homage towards with his designs.
I have a DG&S stamped dial and movement in a ladies wristlet much like my dial and it has a 10.5 ligne Rebberg 15j movement looking for a case.
FINALLY CONFIRMED by SILKE of Germany that movement is kal. 6 by LE COULTRE. artb
