Benrus Automatic Stainless Steel Silver Sunburst Dial Mens Vintage Watch....34mm
Founded in 1921 in New York by brothers Oscar, Benjamin, and Ralph Lazarus. “Benrus” combined the first three letters of Benjamin’s first name with the terminal-three letters of his last name. The company typically imported Swiss movements and assembled them in Manhattan, New York and Waterbury, Connecticut. They made many watches in a variety of styles and shapes, and watches were typically priced lower than other competitors. They made many watches for WWII service men and again supplied soldiers in Korea and Vietnam, creating many iconic and rugged tool watches. Ultimately, the company went the way of many other watch companies and filed for bankruptcy during the “Quartz Crisis” of the 1970’s.
