Very rare Gruen “Orne Model 12” ladies’ Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K white gold with two-tone blue enamel, circa 1929.
Gruen's "Orne" series of ladies' enamel watches were the epitome of Art Deco design. All are rare and desirable. This model has four panels inlaid with light and medium blue enamel. It is very rare and this is one of only a few I have ever seen. It was priced at $55.00 in 1929. It is in excellent condition showing only very light wear. Blue enamel is perfect and complete. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. Case measures 28mm long and 15mm wide. Original two-tone dial is very good. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Gruen Guild grade 833 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
