A NEW series of books on Gruen watches, Gruen The 1950's focuses on watches advertised during that decade. While the title says decade, the most important years, those from 1950-1955 are presented. Year by year watches and their descriptions are presented to aid collectors in identifying their Gruens or read the colorful ads that ran in your typical US and Canadian newspapers. One may think that 5 years would make this the smallest of the Decade Series of books, but instead it is the LARGEST f the 3 books.
There are a massive 1,675 watch illustrations presented in black and white in 347 pages. Additionally, there are 3 indexes, by date chronologically, by model name, and a large table with data such as price, number of jewels, case material, etc, that is sorted by model type then by name. It is a Gruen watch researchers dream come true!

There is not a lot in print on Gruen watches from the 50's but this one has hundreds of them! I'm very excited to see so many new models! This book along with the other Decade books make this the "Complete Guide" for my collection!
