History
The Gruen Watch Company used to be one of the largest watch manufacturers in the United States. It was founded by German-born watchmaker Dietrich Grün, who changed the spelling of his name to "Gruen" because the letter ü does not exist in English. Gruen was one of the first American watch companies to offer basic timepieces produced in Switzerland. Some of their best timepieces were made by Jean Aegler (who became a business partner of Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex). The first Gruen watches were introduced in 1908. Because in those days watches were considered feminine, they were not popular with men. They were therefore preferred by female buyers. The company did not return to making watches for men until World War I, when military use made watches acceptable for men to wear.
