Experts Opinion: A stylistic Gruen, 14K gold case with extended
semi-covered lugs and matching crowns between 4, 5, 10, and 11 o'clock.
The crown at the top is factory and does not serve any function other
than adding a symmetry to the design of the case. The dial has arrow
shaped, solid gold, applied numerals. This is a very attractive model.
