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.

A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting.

Water-resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned wristwatches. Have seals and gaskets checked by a watchmaker before submerging in water, swimming, or showering
Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist Vintage watches are generating more interest over the last several years. They are added to collections and are being worn. These vintage watches are a bargain when you consider the cost of producing a comparable watch with a high-grade movement. This is a very nice example of a vintage watch which would make an interesting example for any collection or just be fun to wear as your personal timepiece
Vintage watches may gain or lose a small amount of time per day as they do not keep quartz accuracy. Also, because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
