    The go to comfort watch. I think as close to aesthetic and ergonomic perfection as one can get.

    I thought at the time when I first saw this Gruen movement, that it looked suspiciously like a movement made by Durowe, a German maker associated with Laco. Ranfft didn’t show this movement by the Gruen calibre number 629ss. This morning, I went to the Ranfft images and checked out Durowe, to find the movement in this Gruen is actually a Durowe calibre 570! Durowe later became absorbed by Timex who wanted the Durowe battery powered movement for early Timex Electrics. This was in the early 1960s. So I suspect this Gruen is likely from the mid 1950s.

    This Montrose "Aquamatic" was a bonus/freebie watch included in an auction lot I purchased for one particular watch. From what little I have been able to learn about Montrose, it appears to have been an in-house brand sold into the Canadian market. Surprising Montrose used the "Aquamatic" model name given its longtime use by Nivada/Croton. It's a well made and handsome piece, IMHO.....recessed crown, funky dial font, powered by a Felsa 1560 movement....keeps good time. The bracelet is just a bit snug for me....I'll pass it along to one of my sons after wearing it a bit.
