VINTAGE BENRUS WRISTWATCH WITH AR1 – 17 JEWEL MOVEMENT – UNUSUAL AQUA CRYSTAL

VINTAGEBENRUSWRISTWATCHWITH AR1 – 17 JEWEL MOVEMENT………………………….THIS WRISTWATCH JUST CAME OUR WAY IN A LOCAL ESTATE PURCHASE. THE FIRST THING THAT STOOD OUT WAS THE AQUA BLUE DOMED CRYSTAL IN IT – CAN’T SAY I’VE EVER SEEN ONE BEFORE. CASE MEASURES APPROX. 25.35 X 35.25 MM (OUTSIDE LUGS) AND 10.45 MM THICK COUNTING CRYSTAL. DON’T FINE ANY MARKINGS AS TO METAL CONTENT ON CASE BUT IT APPEARS TO BE EITHER GOLD FILLED OR PLATED WITH WHAT LOOKS TO BE A STAINLESS STEEL BACK. DON’T SEE ANY WORN-THRU SPOTS ON THE CASE AND NO DAMAGE OTHER THAN NORMAL MARKS FROM BEING WORN. WATCH SEEMS TO RUN GOOD FOR ABOUT 5 HOURS BUT THEN WILL STOP FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON. IS CURRENTLY SPORTING A LORD HARWOOD STRETCH BAND WITH 1/20 12K TOPS AND STAINLESS BACK. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT ALL THE PHOTOS POSTED BELOW.
