This is a vintage wristwatch dating to circa 1945. This is beautiful, clean, and in very good condition. The back has the seldom seen Panamerican stamp as shown. The dial is spectacular and all original with no restoration. The watch has not been polished and it has some light wear and patina that just adds to the character of this 1940s classic.
A full COA service was just completed on August 7, 2019. This included a new alloy mainspring. The watch runs well and keeps time.
The time sets as it should. The case is plated metal with a stainless steel back and it is about 33mm wide not including the crown. It is about 40mm long to the tips of the lugs. The movement is a high quality Gruen 420SS and it has 17 jewels.The band is a new, good quality leather replacement. The total length of the watch is about 9 1/4 inches. This uses an 18 mm band which could easily be replaced if you prefer a different style or length. The crystal is clean and clear and has no scratches. The dial is very nice and is depicted accurately in the pictures. Please see my other listings... Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting.
