In the world of cheap watches, there are a few gems. One of those gems has to be a Precision by Gruen quartz dress watch that I found at Kohls several months ago. It's a men's dress watch with a Japanese quartz movement, a date window, a brown leather strap, and a gold colored case. It retails for less than $30. Ordinarily there wouldn't be much more to write. However, this watch has one feature that makes it special: a domed crystal. That feature combined with a well executed vintage look makes this watch look much more expensive than it actually is.

Construction. This watch has a stainless steel caseback and base metal bezel or case. At this price point, you won't find much information about the materials used.
While Precision by Gruen was once a great name in American watches, today It is made in Asia by M.Z. Berger. However, the company knows a thing or two about making watches. I highly recommend this one.
