Beautiful example of a new old stock Gruen Ocean Chief. All original, this watch was discovered in a jewelers drawer, never sold and sat with other unsold watches in a bin since the 1960s. Not discovered until I inquired about vintage watches to a diamond jeweler who said they stopped selling watches back in the 1970s and went to look in their storage for any watches that may have been left and found the bin. Bezel turns smooth, case is unpolished, rare concave bezel, gilt dial is shiny black. Original hands still glow. Light scratches on crystal from being in a bin with other watches. Beautiful vintage piece. Watch needs a service after sitting in a bin for over 50 years. It does NOT run. Crown clicks fine to set hands but it needs a service. Had it professionally opened by Watchmaker to take picture of the movement and confirm watch needs a service. This is the best looking example of the Gruen Ocean Chief you will find. I want to offer this piece in its original found state for your collection. This is a vintage time piece all original and sold as is and as described.
