Benrus Type 1 reissue

Evidently this is a watch that is only available in Japan. Will have to look for it when I go there at the end of the year. Some specifications:

Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, dual time (?)
Case: stainless steel, 40 mm diameter, 16 mm thick, 19 mm lug width
Crystal: mineral glass
Movement: Swiss quartz
Water resistance: 10 ATM

The watch will feature the Tritium gas tubes on the hands, 1 on the hour hand and 2 on the minute hand. The tubes are the H3 mb-microtec H3 technologies tubes. The watch is expected to retail for USD 350.

I understand that there is also a Type 2 reissue. Will bring more on the type 2 once more details in available.

The Benrus BR763 Type 1 watch.

A close up view of the face. Note the tubes on the hands.

The case back. The two indentations is to facilitate removal of the case back for battery change.

  1. Set on his signature 100mm heel,replica shoes Christian Louboutin’s replica flats Platinana courts are guaranteed to lengthen your legs to supermodel standards. Rendered in a combination of patent and matte leather, the ankle strap curves around the front to join the sharp, pointed toe. They’re finished, of course, with the iconic red lacquered sole. These will pair just as well with denim as with a cocktail dress.
