The watch Grandfather Seiberling used was a Repeater, whose chime he enjoyed demonstrating. The watch shown on this page is not that one, but rather a Gruen 50th Anniversary Watch, which had been given to him in 1928 by his sales team at Seiberling Rubber Company.
Here is an excerpt from a document by Eugene Fuller, published by The Nation Association of Watch Collectors in 1974, providing a detailed history of the Gruen Watch Company's 50th Anniversary Watch. It is intended for the private use of Seiberling Visual History Internet viewers, and may not be reproduced or republished.
Graphical items on this site, with few exceptions, were scanned from images in the private collection of the Frank A. Seiberling Jr. family.

Most images from SeiberlingVisualHistory.org may be reproduced on request, only if full credit is maintained, including a link to the original page containing the item, and SeiberlingVisualHistory.org has been notified of the item's proposed use.
