On this rainy Sunday morning, a Gruen "Cartouche Orné 5" brightened my wrist:

Grumpy nice Elgin!

For Monday for the 53' Croydon cld, with the aftermarket Kreisler (Double Feature) bracelet. I had brown leather in the inserts and changed them out to black.

The dial and the hands will be going out to International Dial for reluming. The finish on the dial is original and what a gem, "with it not being burned."

Probably one of my favorites of the cld's! This should have been the bracelet Hamilton issued with the watch! :)
