In its glory years from the 1920s through the 1940s, the Gruen Watch Company of USA & Switzerland was one of the leaders in wristwatch design and quality, even collaborating with Rolex (e.g., the Aegler movement duo-dial doctors watch) from its factories in Switzerland. Prior to WWII, Gruen was better known in the USA than Rolex, which at that time was concentrating on the British and Commonwealth countries (hence lots of early Rolexes coming out of Australia and the UK). Hans Wilsdorf and Gruen were friends and neighbors in Switzerland (their factories were just yards away), and even agreed to market their watches as Rolex Gruen in Europe, but the Great Depression prevented this.

Stunning and Minty Vintage Gruen Precision 510. This is part of the same line that has been made famous as the watch worn by Sean Connery in the casino scene of "Dr. NO" as James Bond 007 as well as in "From Russia with Love", "You Only Live Twice" and "Goldfinger". This wonderfully preserved piece is in spectacular condition given its age. It is functioning flawlessly and keeping excellent time. A very highly sought after watch. A superb collectors piece. This individual watch features the N 510 R movement (Inca-bloc balance for shock protection) with sub second hand.
