    Only bought it on yesterday from eBay.
    Just have to wait for it to be delivered.

    Typically, the links don't seem to be working.

    Very nice. I have this one from the 60s, but with a West German movement (after Gruen had sold the company and they used other movements).
    You will enjoy this watch!

    Enjoy!

    Recently bought this off of Ebay for approx $50 as a Christmas gift for my mom. She loved it!

    Wow, that looks just like the one I bought, except yours looks brand new, mine has 'character' lets say. I wonder how much it would cost to repair the face of my one.

    Thanks...
    Yeah.. I thought so.. Thats why I bought it.. (good deal too, imo).
    In great condition. Keeps great time, - Love it.! - but I gotta loose the spiedel bracelet..
    Looking for a leather strap circa that period (with a G on the buckle if possible..) -
    Love the vintage pieces...!
    Thanks again

    I acquired a vintage Baylor with a twist-o-flex band and tried to wear it that way but those things should be called the twist-o-hair bands.
