Gruen Pocket Watches

Gruen Pocket WatchesDietrich Gruen was a German Watchmaker who came to American in 1867. He was the first person to initiate Gruen Watches. His son Fred later continued making the watches. Earliest Gruen Watches included Gruen Pocket Watches and Gruen Wrist watches for both men and women.

Gruen pocket watches were known for their elegant design and thin frame, which marketed by VeriThin. The family who owned it, closed Gruen in 1953; however, Gruen watches were made in Switzerland until 1976. The name Gruen is today licensed to MZ Berger, which continues on making replicas of the original watches.

Gruen pocket watches, which were made before 1976 are collectible items, and the watches, which were made prior to World War II, are especially prized collections. To check if a Gruen Pocket Watch is real or not, you will have to examine several parts of the watch.

All Gruen Pocket Watches and Wrist Watches have the name “Gruen” on the face, just below the 12 at the top. Watches that were made after 1953, have Swiss below Gruen on the face. Watches that do not have Gruen written on the face or have incorrect Gruen spelling are not authentic.

On the back of a Gruen watch, the word “Gruen” is written and sometimes the style name is also written, such as SemiThin or VeriThin.

You can take your watch to a jeweler and ask him to open the case. All authentic Gruen Watches have serial number stamped inside. The Gruen Pocket Watchesserial numbers indicate the year of make. Any body can use a Gruen Time data table and match the serial number to find the year the watch was manufactured in. The number of the case is most of the time different from the number of the works and the number on the case cannot be used to check the manufacturing year of the watch.

One of the most popular Gruen Pocket Watches is the Square Carr. The Carr means square, it is French. The Square Carr was released in 1931. It is a square shaped pocket watch. The 12, 3, 6 and 9 numbers were arranged in the 4 corners giving it the shape of a diamond.

The watch was marketed as a men’s pocket watch and a women’s purse watch as well as a portable table clock. The production of Carr was terminated in 1934 and today the pocket watch costs almost $1500-$1600. Air flight jump hour is also a very popular Gruen watch, which was made post World War II.

The replica of the Square Carr costs much less. MZ Berger makes the replicas but they have no connection to Gruen of Gruen watches co.  MZ Berger manufacture’s watches in china and supplies them through the U.S.
