Very rare Gruen “Orne 57” ladies’ Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K white gold with blue and black enamel, circa 1929.

This fantastic Gruen has angled panels set with three colors of blue enamel, as well as black enamel. It is very rare and this is the only example I have ever seen. It was priced at $45.00 in 1929. It is in excellent condition showing only light wear. The blue and black enamel is perfect and complete. Caseback is excellent, with a monogram. Case measures 30mm long and 17mm wide. Original black enamel inlaid dial is very good. Has new glass crystal. Has new blue grosgrain ribbon strap with period white gold filled Art Deco design clasp. The watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Gruen Guild grade 153 manual wind movement, just serviced and running well.
