Benrus Series #3021 Time-Only (Stainless Steel Case)

Brand: Benrus

Model: Series #3021 Time-Only; Swiss Made circa early 1960s

Case: Solid stainless steel case is approximately 34mm excluding the original signed "BENRUS" winding crown

Strap: Vintage new old stock (NOS) 11/16" (~18mm) dark brown genuine cowhide strap with polished stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Manual-winding movement with center sweeping-seconds hand; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Original silver sunburst dial with cool tri-color "flag" logo and elongated hour markers; original luminous hands; solid stainless steel case with domed acrylic crystal; Swiss manual-winding movement; new old stock strap

Condition: Very nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; sharp solid stainless steel case appears to be completely unpolished with minimal wear throughout; crisp caseback remains clearly legible with the original brushed finish in the center; attractive original silver sunburst dial with vibrant tri-color "flag" logo; original hands with all luminous material in tact and aged to a beautiful yellow hue

Other: The trademark Benrus tri-color "flag" logo is the star of the show here, but who doesn't love a sharp and unpolished stainless steel case? Some believe that the cool red/yellow/blue logo is a playful nod to the Romanian origin of Benrus Watch Company co-founder, Oscar Lazrus (although the colors are inverted). Regardless, the logo adds a nice pop of color to the silver sunburst dial with elongated hour markers. This particular model can be dressed up or down depending on mood, and the relatively thin profile of the 34mm case slides nicely under a cuff - It's a bargain for well under $500.
