    Help with Vintage Gruen Ladies Octagonal movement

    Just found this old Gruen ladies movement in my dad's (retired watchmaker) old stock. Anyone know anything about it? Can't find anything in doing research. I think the face is beautiful with octagonal shape and engraving. The writing says" 15 Jewels, 4 adj., Gruen Guild. The hands are a shimmery blue/green color, but of course, I don't know if they're original. The dial only says "Gruen" on the front. It also appears to be working, but the hands don't move. Thanks so much.

    It looks like a Gruen 835 .. in fact, it looks like it's labelled under the balance wheel

    This is a high quality ladies movement

    It sounds like it needs a service and a case

    Rolex used the same movement (actually made by Aegler, who supplied both companies) as their Calibre 200. Here is the version with indirect central seconds hand (Gruen Cal. 835SS, Rolex Cal. 210):
