Gruen "Day/ Night"

It is not often that we have both a stainless "Air Flight" and a gold plated "Day/Night" in stock, and even rarer when we have a stainless steel "Day/Night" as well, but we are currently having a streak of good luck! These don't walk in the door every day, so we were delighted to find this killer "Day/Night" wristwatch. As a result we now are offering two of these interesting watches for sale. This one, made circa 1960, has a stainless steel case and our other listing (w2653 on this site) has a yellow gold-filled case.  It measures 36mm in diameter, by 42mm lug to lug, by 10mm thick, and is in excellent condition. The movement is a "precision" 17 jewel movement with a jump-hour function that changes the markers from black to green as the time of day transitions from day to night. At six pm the entire dial changes from the black numerals, used for easy daytime reading, to green luminous numerals, which once glowed in the dark for nighttime reading, but have since lost their glow. This watch has the same movement as the "Air Flight" and functions the same way, but instead of a numeral change, the markers change. We have fitted it with a very nice 18mm lizard grain band. This unusual piece would be the star watch in any collection due to it's condition and unusual features. Remember all of our timepieces come with our famous one year parts and labor warranty.
