Vintage Gruen Curvex Batwing Driver's Watch *rare Vgc Runs And Keeps Good Time:
One of the most distinctive of all the art deco style vintage American wristwatches, this model features hinged wing shaped lugs and is designed to be worn as a “driver’s” watch on the side of the wrist. Featuring a gold filled case with horizontal ribbed design, and pronounced tapered hinged lugs with stepped “feathered” design. With original matte silver dial with raised gold indexes, tapered leaf style hands, and powered by 17 jewel manual wind calibre 440 curvex movement with subsidiary seconds. The idea of the driver’s watch was to allow the driver to view the time with his hand on the driver’s wheel without having to turn his wrist!
