    a 5 bucks Gruen back to life

    That case needed a lot of cleaning and polishing. I couldn't do anything more without remoing too much metal.
    The 510-RSS movement needed a lot of cleaning, and I mean a LOT: cleaning, more cleaning, some polishing, oiling, tuning the timing: the old watch keeps now a really good time (+5/10 seconds a day) with a a little less than 32 hours of power reserve.

    5 bucks! You can't beat that. Really NICE!!
    One of my favorite watches is a $12 dollar Helbros that I bought a few weeks ago.
    Great job on the clean up. She looks spectacular!!!!

    I received a new lot of various sizes crystal and swapped the ugly old crystal on this Gruen.
    Now, she's as pretty as her sister Elgin in the other post :)
