The woman selling the watch for an estate sale couldnt open it to even tell what movement it had in it. The case needed some help,it had some scratches and gouges. I removed the crystal with my "hot glue gun " method.It wasnt working, and no way to check really as it was missing its crown. And the Benrus has a very nice DR 2L5 17 jewel swiss mechanical movement . It was one of those 2 piecer stems , and the male part with the crown was missing.

The same NSN was used in Spain and Italy, and the user Andrea have also shown a French variant.

It has great style with its red sweep second hand, vintage Hallmark “Military Style”, angled sides stainless steel case, and an amazing MEL stainless steel vintage stretch band.

The “Mel” is a vintage band by Foster, and one of the more desireable vintage expansion bands out there.
