BENRUS TO FAR RIGHT

Founded in New York City in 1921, Benrus Watch Company was an American company created by three Romanian immigrant brothers. "BENRUS" was a combination of one of the brothers first and last names: BEN"jamin laz"RUS". by 1923, the Lazarus brothers acquired the trademark Benrus from the Swiss federal office for intellectual property. Originally the company watch headquarters were located in the Hippodrome building on 44th street in Manhattan were watches were "put together" and the bulk of the actual movement manufacturing in a Benrus factory in la Choux de Fond, Switzerland.

Due to the fact that all Swiss watches and parts were controlled by Swiss laws and cartels or combined companies, parts makers provided Benrus with parts and, in some circumstances ebauche - which they then assembled or upgraded. to overcome this fact and the fact that swiss parts and assembled watches were being penalized through US Customs duties, Benrus would found a factory in Waterbury CT where they made the cases for Benrus watches and then in late 1950 to early 1960, Benrus opened factories in France, St. Thomas and the Virgin Islands.

NOTE: During the Vietnam War, Benrus won a military Contract over Bulova and the rest of the US companies. For part of this contract, Benrus would buy Japanese Seiko Movements...

Production steadily expanded throughout the 1940's with a boost during WWII when Benrus manufactured watches for the various servicemen and woman who served as well as nurses and other professions. Like most other watch makers, timing devices for use in bombs and weapons were also produced.

By the 1950's, Benrus designers went to work fashioning top grade,luxurious watches in Gold and with Diamonds. Due to their strong relationship with the Swiss cartel, and their market share after the war, Benrus was able to invest in the latest high quality Swiss and German watch movements and ebauche movements.

Designs from 1947 to 1959 were the best ever completed by Benrus and Benrus watches from these same years are the most sought after by Collectors.
