    Gruen Veri-thin Pocket Watch

    Another one that I got to open and identify for my friend.I'm pretty sure it's a 1947 with a cal.385 movement.He was really excited about the case.

    not many of those (in 14k solid gold) it seems are around still.

    All that I know is based on the hard work and writing of others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. To quote Newton, "If I have seen farther it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."

    That's a lovely watch. So many fine gold cases have been sent off for scrap, so it's a treat to find one intact with its original movement.

    I think one of the case screws is off. Hard to say from the pictures, but it might be too small or beneath the case lip.

    There is something more to the art of watchmaking and repairing than that of merely assembling a watch and making it 'tick.'
