I own this watch. It is Gruen cased in Switzerland. It has a makers mark that I cannot identify. The watch /case was made in the 1920's.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thx

It would be helpful if there was a pic of just the mark as what shows now is too small. If it is Swiss there is a very good chance that there will be a small mark of a bear in an irregularly shaped cartouche.
