    Final choice of gold case for Assmann Gruen

    Decided to use a Solidarity 14k all over hand engraved near new condition for the 1895+ Assmann that needs balance adjustment work. Nicer quality and condition than the slightly worn 18k. Also had 1894 Elgin in it so near same age. Fit perfectly as expected. Shown with Solidarity mc 12 size. I have good cases to choose from because of 45+ years of accumulation. I will upgrade American old p.w. when appropriate because originally movements and cases were commonly bought separately.

Size:  197.3 KBI have seen 18 size Assmann Gruens only with 62k serials. This 291 the lowest of more than 10. Acquired another hunter case 62652.. with different jewel mounts. It will go into a good gold case as well. Very nice condition from a very pleasant agreeable Norwegian Hakon Sandstrom who priced it affordably. May not have been in U.S. Dial marked Ausman. A working grandson of Julias Assmann changed his name to Ausman or Asman.

    Oh so sweet!
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "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!
