The parts included are: NOS case reference 560 RSS 165, NOS crystal, NOS movement ring, NOS handset and a used 560 RSS 17-jewel Gruen Autowind movement. NO WATCH OR OTHER PARTS INCLUDED. The case does not have a bezel or crown, and no dial is included.
Pictures of the watch and the Gruen Ocean Chief original 1960s catalog listing are for illustration only. The movement has a good balance, but otherwise its internal condition cannot be tested. The NOS case has just light storage marks on the back. The hands have the original lume, which may be fragile and need to be re-lumed when installed. The NOS case has the stunning, sharp edges to the curved lugs.
