Alpha and Gruen
avatar September 01, 2019 07:35AM
Doing a timing check on the Gruen. After 12 hours it is maybe a half second fast at most. Will be interested to see if this continues. My normal luck that my cheapest watch is running so well. I have actually enjoyed wearing it, being a ten year old new watch.

The Alpha is a joy to operate, easy winding, easy setting. The crown threads are long and precise, and don't strip out like some $5,000 watches. Gains ten seconds a day, so I just stop it with the hack for ten seconds in the morning.

The Gruen hacks as well, gained 1/2 second today. A ten year old unworn watch. The leather band is worth the price of the watch. Both watches cheap as dirt; the Gruen somehow contains a Swiss movement.
