Gruen "Boiled Coke"
It’s cool to hate on Quartz. It’s also cool to hate on homages. But you know what’s even cooler than both of those things? Being a rebel. And that’s exactly why you need this watch. Sure, it’s design “inspiration” isn’t exactly subtle and it isn’t by any stretch a marvel of horological excellence, but there’s something so wrong about this watch that it’s just so damn right. To be perfectly honest, this Gruen really is a well made timepiece. The contrasting textures, quality of finishing, and overall feel are outstanding for a quartz watch (or otherwise). So stop reading and buy the thing. Or don’t. The watch couldn’t care less.
