Benrus "type" military watch homages

Post by andrema on Wed 11 Jan 2012, 3:53 pm

If you like the "Benrus type" military design, there are plenty of alternatives in the market: MKII Blackwater, MKII Paradive, Precista, Adanac (Canada spelled backwards) Navigator and Marathon Navigator..there are a few more but they escape me right now. They range in price from a little over $100 to over $1500!

The original "Benrus Type I"
