    The cheap part is done: buying them.

    Now starts the expensive part: servicing them.

    Alas...

    I like the dial on the Gruen. Any movement pics?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Nice catches...The Gruen is nicely odd - but I think I like the Zodiac best. Congrats.

    A nice trio. I also particularly like the Zodiac.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    I like the Gruen best. Has a neat "racing" motif. I'd replace the band, those adjustable sizes just never look right to me.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    They also gouge the lugs of the case.

    One of the attractions of the Gruen dial is the tick marks are inline with an 18000 bph movement.
