Gruen: The Art and Mystery of Watchmaking

Gruen: The Art and Mystery of Watchmaking

Paul Schliesser's elegant site offers a comprehensive history of the Gruen Watch Company of Ohio. The easy-to-navigate site is divided into sections, each representing a significant turning point in the company’s history—from the 1867 arrival in America of founder Dietrich Gruen to the watches produced during the company’s heyday in the 1920s. Numerous watch photographs and illustrations, as well as reproductions of vintage advertisements, track the company’s evolution, and a detailed Sources page lists all the printed media that Schliesser used.
