From the history of Gruen. Among the rarest and most collectable of Gruen wristwatches are the "driver's" models, the Ristside (wrist side) and Curvex-Ristside models. Designed to be worn on the side of the wrist, they place the dial in line with the base of the thumb. When driving, you can see the dial without turning your arm or letting go of the steering wheel.
