With a bit of work, this 1950s James Bond 007 style Gruen 510 sub seconds watch will give you the popular collector's look at a fraction of most dealers' prices. The 17-jewel movement is complete but the balance is sticky, so it will need at least a cleaning, maybe more repair. The more rare champagne colored original dial has light marks but is definitely presentable. Very unusual dial that has a dark gold chapter ring that looks really nice in person. The dial is 29.5mm across and is marked SWISS at 6 o'clock.
