Regular price $0.00 $665.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A VERY RARE AND HARD TO COME BY EARLY 70s GRUEN PRECISION AUTOWIND 600 WITH ULTRA SMOOTH SILVERY BAKELITE BEZEL AND ORIGINAL BRACELET. JUST SERVICED 

 

  • CASE: FUNKY HEAVY DUTY ALL-STEEL DIVER CASE MEASURING A ROBUST 40.5mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 46.5mm LUG TO LUG. CASE IS IN EXTREMELY SHARP AND MINTY CONDITION MAINTAINING ALL ITS FACTORY ORIGINAL FINISHES AND SHARP EDGES. A COUPLE OF MINOR CASEBACK SCRATCHES, BUT THIS THING LOOKS PRACTICALLY UNWORN. BUT.....IT'S ALL ABOUT THAT SUPER SLICK SILVER BAKELITE BEZEL. IT'S RARE TO SEE A BAKELITE BEZEL IN THIS TYPE OF STUNNING CONDITION. I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANOTHER VINTAGE WATCH THAT I'VE RUN ACROSS WITH A BAKELITE BEZEL IN THIS COLOR. SO COOL

 

  • DIAL: NOW THIS IS A GOOD LOOKIN' FACE RIGHT HERE. CHECK OUT THAT 2-TONE DIAL WITH THE MATTE GREY BACKGROUND AND THE WHITE PERIPHERAL MINUTE TRACK REALLY GIVING THIS ONE SOME VISUAL IMPACT. REALLY A STUNNING DIAL. NICE APPLIED LUMED STEEL MARKERS WITH THE TRITIUM MATCHING WELL WITH THAT ON THOSE STEEL STICK HANDS. I DIG THAT GROOVY ASSYMETRICAL DATE WINDOW AT 3.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS AUTOWIND 600 RUNS ON A 17J GRUEN IN-HOUSE 731AUTOMATIC WHICH IS RUNNING SMOOTHLY AND KEEPING GOOD TIME. WATCH HAS BEEN RECENTLY SERVICED AND IS RUNNING LIKE A TOP.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL "W" LINK STEEL GRUEN SIGNED BRACELET IN SUPER SHARP SHAPE WHICH SHOULD ACCOMMODATE UP TO AN 8" WRIST. I'VE ONLY RUN ACROSS ONE OTHER OF THESE. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE MODEL AND ONE THAT REALLY IS A STAND-OUT. I LOVE THE CHUNKY SIZE ON THIS ONE AND THAT KILLER BAKELITE BEZEL. THIS IS A GREAT VINTAGE DIVER WITH ALL THE RIGHT MOVES.
