you got a great deal on both of them
I had a 1939 Gruen Mans 14k gold 17 jewel, while I was overseas I took it to be repaired. Went to pick it up and it wasn't working at all. I took it
to another Jeweler and he informed me the Jewels were gone.
I went back to the first Jeweler and he denied knowing anything about it.
Turns out he sold the jewels to another man to repair his Rolex.
The watch had a 4 side pyramid Crystal and Roman floral design around it. It was the only thing I had from my grandfather. It was worth more than
$1500 it was in mint condition and there were only three of that design made and probably the only one still in existence. Now it is worth nothing
because the jewels cannot be replaced.
