This is a Benrus 10kt Rolled Gold Wind Up Watch with 1954 Speidel Expandable Band, runs and keeps good time. Case is 1 and 1/4" in diameter and the band is 6 1/4" in length. The band stretches and will fit any wrist. Crystal has some scratches on it but the band is like brand new. Stainless steel back with the model number 781546. Swiss movement. A great collector's watch from the past. The Benrus Watch Company was founded in 1921 by three brothers. The watches were intended to be moderately priced for the common man. Originally they were manufactured in Switzerland, although the company was based in Manhattan. Benrus watches that were manufactured in the 1940s were unique and exaggerated in design. In the early 1950s the watches sold for $24.75 to $71.50. By the late 1960s cheaper Timex watches, and quartz movement watches in general, had taken over the watch market. The company eventually filed for bankruptcy in 1977.
