Curved Watches
Gruen realized watches curved to comfortably fit a wrist in two ways:
1) The curved Curvex movement.
2) The low profile Veri-Thin movement like here.
Both ask for proper engineering if a big balance and a Breguet hairspring are to be implemented.
Such a watch is not cheap. They are classics anyway, thus everybodies darling. The condition is scarcely good; they are rather comfortable to wear, and therefore usually worn out. Moreover, the cases were poorly protected against humidity, leading to corrosion on the dial, and sometimes even on the movement.
There is a Gruen Projekt in the Internet, which collected already lots of informations.
