Gruen "Curvex Envoy" men's Retro Modern design wristwatch in 10K white gold fill, circa 1946.

The "Envoy" was one of the first post-World War II models offered by Gruen. It has a curved rectangular case with stepped lugs and a fantastic black nickel finish dial with white gold finish numerals and markers. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with no brassing. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. Case measures 36mm long and 24mm wide. Original black nickel finish dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Gruen Curvex Precision grade 440 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.

Price $300. SOLD

Also, please take notice that a new book about the Curvex by Gruen expert Kyle Rogers has just been published and will be available soon. It is in full color and contains hundreds of photos and details on every known Curvex model produced by Gruen from 1935 through the 1950s. I will have a link here on my website to order the book once it is ready for shipment.
