    The Benrus Watch Company was founded in New York City in 1921 by Benjamin, Ralph, and Oscar Lazarus. The name "Benrus" originates from the combination of Benjamin Lazarus's first and last name. Although its watches were not as expensive as Swiss watchmakers such as LeCoultre or Omega, or the American watch maker, Hamilton, Benrus made a wide variety of interesting and innovative watches. Its primary U.S. competitors were Elgin and Hamilton, the latter which it had once attempted to acquire. Its price points were typically between the higher priced Hamilton and the lower priced Timex.
