Benrus 9021-9045 with Box and Papers

The Benrus Watch Company, founded in New York City in 1921, has long been linked to its war-time watches that were produced for the U.S. government during both WWII and Vietnam. With large assembly efforts in the U.S., including a case factory in Waterbury, CT, Benrus was an honest-to-goodness American watch company, 2nd only to Hamilton during this time period.

Like many of our favorite brands, Benrus went bankrupt in the 1970's thanks to an onslaught of competition from quartz powered pieces. While the Benrus name is still in business today, it is a mere shadow of its former self and unworthy of further discussion.

Over their decades of history, the Benrus name could be found on everything from beautiful gold dress watches to tough aviators chronographs and simple time-only pieces like this. This Benrus Reference 9021 features a handsome 34mm case and a clean, sunburst dial with applied hour markers. Turning the case around, it features a very cool and rare touch for the era- an exhibition caseback, allowing you to see the movement in action. Completing the package, this piece includes the box and instruction manual.

With cool looks and a hard to find full set, this hand-wound Benrus is a great addition to any collection.
