    I have to make a few observations about this watch:

    178.0552_040618 11385.jpg
    This is a fairly recent acquisition; when I first held it my reaction was "OMG! This this thing is huge and heavy! I'll never enjoy wearing it."

    I also found the styling a little over the top, a little too macho.

    However, having worn this piece a dozen or so times since then it has really become a favorite. Despite the weight and size it is super comfortable and the styling no longer seems so aggressive. There are some issues: the chrono seconds hand is maybe a half second off and there's a scuff on the bezel. I can probably live with the scuff and the chrono hand will be fixed when this goes in for service. So this watch has turned into a real keeper for me. I'm glad I didn't act on my first impulse and try to send it back or flip it.

    This one for a change, today. Don’t wear it much. Too small for my big wrist. Gruen “driver’s” watch with articulated lugs. Designed for use during the era of “Armstrong” steering, and “plan ahead” braking. You can wear it as usual, or on the edge of the wrist. This one had been a salesman’s sample back in the day when Gruen had an office in Canada. When that office closed, the managing director moved to Rolex, Canada, in a lateral position. When he found out I collect watches, he gave it to me. I sent him a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label, and he was furious!
