Other: This rare 1960s Gruen Precision Day-Date is absolutely incredible in the metal. With its shimmering silver sunburst dial and unique day aperture with red text, it is a fantastic example of 1960s design and sure to be a conversation piece. The sharp case is unpolished and has developed some desirable patina to the gold plating. It is all original down to the crystal and in collector-grade condition - What more can you ask for at this price point? Oh, and you won't run into anyone else wearing the same watch (even at your local RedBar G2G). In fact, we seriously doubt you'll ever find a better example than the one we are offering for sale here.
