GRUEN Marsi Swiss Diamond Ladies Watch
Immerse yourself in the rich horological tradition of a classic GRUEN swiss ladies watch as you behold the all new Marsi.
The trusted name of GRUEN has been around since 1876, creating exquisite timepieces that have captured the imagination of collectors all over the world.
The Marsi swiss diamond ladies watch takes this innovative spirit and elevates it to breathtaking new heights in this exceptional production.
Let your eyes gaze through the flame-tapered crystal and focus upon the amazing visual specticle that is the glamorous dial.
Two diamond indices, along with true mother of pearl and golden hands, rest atop a unique rounded guilloché pattern that circles its way across the entire pearl white face.
Pristine stainless steel, with a polished gold-tone and shinning crystals, securely houses the swiss movement with one jewel held inside.
Even more gold-tone stainless steel comprises the link bracelet for a lasting durability, while locking with a strong stainless steel butterfly clasp.
On June 12, 1874 Dietrich Gruen applied for a patent on an improved safety pinion, which was granted on December 22. He was 27 years old.
In 1876 he formed the Columbus Watch Manufacturing Company in the basement of a downtown Columbus, Ohio bank building.
In his Columbus workshop, Dietrich modified, finished and cased raw movements that were imported from Switzerland.
These new watches included his patented safety pinion.
In 1894, Fred Gruen and Dietrich Gruen decided to try to start a new watch company.
Using money borrowed from friends and relatives, Dietrich and Fred formed the partnership "D. Gruen and Son."
By the mid-twenties, Gruen's sales had reached over five million dollars.
In total sales, it had become the largest watch company in the U.S., as well as first in the average watch price!
Today, Gruen is proud to share and continue this grand horological tradition with the world as their drive to create extraordinary watches remains the standard of watchmakers worldwide.
"To produce the watch of his dreams, he must have two things.
He must have American machinery of the most advanced type - and he must have the very best craftsmen in the world - craftsmen in whom the old guild spirit of fine watchmaking still lived."

What is Proxy Bidding?
Proxy bidding is a convenient way to automatically bid on your items without having to continually return to your computer to check on your auctions. A Proxy Bid is a bid automatically placed by the auction system on your behalf based on the Maximum Bid Amount that you set for the particular listing. Each time you place a bid by entering your maximum bid amount (which is the most you're willing to pay for an item), you will be using our Proxy bidding system. If another bidder places a bid on your item, Proxy bidding will then bid automatically on your behalf and at the lowest possible bid increments, but not more than the maximum you specified.
The goal is to win an item at the lowest successful price. To do so, you must be the bidder who placed the highest maximum bid at auction close. You will be notified by email if another bidder has surpassed your maximum bid. In case of a tie for high bidder, earlier bids will take precedence.
What is Bid Increment?
The bid increment is the specified minimum amount you must bid over the current bid amount.
What is an English Auction?
In an English auction, buyers bid until the auction ends. The item is then sold to the highest bidder at the end of the auction period.
What is a Yankee Auction?
In a Yankee Auction, a product lot (a quantity of 2 or more identical products) goes up for auction at a starting price. You attempt to outbid other buyers by offering more money for one or more pieces in the lot. Your bid price is per each single piece and you may bid for more than one piece.
At the close of the auction, the products are awarded to the highest bidder(s) at the price they bid and for the quantity they bid for up to the available auction lot.
As an example, if 5 units are up for auction, and Bidder A bids $200 for 2 pieces, and Bidder B bids $175 for 1 piece and Bidder C bids $160 for 2 pieces, and Bidder D bids $150 for 1 piece. Bidders A, B, and C would all be winning bidders at the price each of them bid and for the quantity each of them bid for. Bidder D would be a losing bidder.
In the event that two different bidders bid the same price, then the winner is based on the quantity bid for and the time the bid was placed. Higher quantity and earliest bids take preference.
NOTE: There is no proxy bidding feature with Yankee auctions. If you win, the price you bid is the price you pay.
What does "Compare At" mean?
The "Compare At" price is the retail price at which an item or comparable item may, in the reasonable judgment of our experienced buyers, manufacturers or suppliers be sold on a everyday basis (i.e. excluding special promotions or sales) at retail stores. In many instances, though not all, "Compare At" price reflects a price suggested by the manufacturer or supplier of these goods, without reference to actual retail sales and may account to an estimation of a retail offer price in accordance with standard industry practices.
Because we sell our merchandise over the internet on a national basis, we make no guarantee that the products have been sold or offered at the "Compare At" price, and the price may or may not reflect the average prevailing market price in any area on a particular day. For some items listed as a set, the "Compare At" price may be an aggregate of the suggested or estimated prices for all items included in the set. Actual retail sales in your area may substantially differ from the "Compare At" price.
You may wish to use the "Compare At" price as a guide in your evaluation of our prices to what you would or could pay for these items in other locations, at other times, or under other conditions, including full retail.
