Description

This one really pains me as my folks are Romanian immigrants and this is a somewhat rare tricolor dial (for those of you that don't know the history of this brand, check this out for the correlation The Watch Guy: History of BENRUS WATCH COMPANY) but I really don't need any dress watches right now as a broke engineering student.
For sale is this gorgeous gold filled 1940s Benrus. Unknown service history and I haven't timed it or measured its power reserve but it keeps time very well for its age and will last all day. As you can see its oversized 36mm case wears quite well on my 7.25" wrist despite its age. Has some mild darkening around the (quite gorgeous) fancy lugs but overall it's still in fantastic condition. Comes on a beautiful new-old-stock dark bluish-green Hirsch boar strap with a matching gold Hirsch branded buckle. Looking for a quick sale at $250 OBO shipped - tricolor oversize Benruses in working condition regularly go for more on eBay and this is one of the best examples I've seen IMO. Plenty of great feedback between u/watchexchange and here.
