Dial:Silvery white dial marked Gruen Curvex and Precision in black. Slightly raised gold Arabic numerals alternated by gold dot markers. Black minute tick marks around edge. Second sub dial at bottom. Gold hour and minute hands with wear.
Case:Curvaceous incabloc 10K gold filled case. Only wear to note is on the back inside edges of lugs. Inside back marked "Cased and Timed in U.S.A. by Gruen Watch Co., Wadsworth, 10K Gold Filled, G852531, 440 448"
Movement:17 jewel Cal 440 manual wind movement signed Gruen Watch Co., and marked "Precision Curvex". The 440 is one of the "true" curvex movements. There is slippage on the winding mechanism but watch winds and operates fine despite this. This couldn't be corrected due to part wear and unavailability of replacement part. Watch is priced with this flaw and sold with this caveat. Aside from this exclusion, watch comes with a 9-month mechanical warranty.
