Beautiful old wristwatch from around the 1940s, gold-plated, 15 jewels

Type: Analogue wristwatch
Brand: Gruen
Movement: Manual winding
Gender: Unisex
Case material: Gold-plated
Model: niet van toepassing
Reference Number: niet van toepassing
Period: 1901-1949

The inside of the lid says ´Saser and Timed USA by Gruen Watch Co,Pioneer Watch Co.´.

On the inside of the movement: ´Gruen Watch Co,Fifteen,15 jewels 402883´
The dial (with some wear) is rosé coloured with ¨gold¨ Arabic numerals and blue hands, Gruen vaguely legible.
The glass is undamaged and pristine, without scratches.
The winding button is marked Bulova.
The gold-plating is in good condition, with light wear on the corners of the case.
The watch has been checked.
Condition: case and movement good, runs, 24-hour test was done, oiled, everything in order, keeps time well.

    Watch is fine, up to expectations and runs too well (takes a few minutes every hour but that does not matter since it was not bought for that)
