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.

BEFORE RESTORATION


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.

THE SINGLE W/BEZEL SYSTEM 1
THE SINGLE W/BEZEL SYS 2
THE VIETNAM WAR SINGLE CASE SYSTEM
MILITARY WATCHES WERE BENRUS MANUAL MOVEMENTS

THE BENRUS  SINGLE PIE PAN CASE WITH LUG/BEZEL HOLD DOWN SYTEM WAS CREATED TO  COMPETE WITH THE 1957/56 BULOVA 23 JEWEL SELFWING SUNBURST  [AUTOMATIC]  WATCH!.

BUILT AROUND A  25 [ 2 MORE JEWELS ] JEWEL ADJUSTABLE AUTOMATIC  MOVEMENT, WITH  A SOLID STEEL SINGLE CASE WITH STEEL BEZEL   SYSTEM [OUT CLASSED  BULOVA SCREW BACK ] AND A NEAR  IDENTICAL SUN-BURST DIAL [ CARVED NOT GRAVED IN FOUR METALIC COLLORS] BENRUS OUT CLASSED THE MORE POWERFUL RIVAL BULOVA.

IMG_1684.JPG (70121 bytes)

YET, WHAT NO ONE REALIZED AT THAT VERY   TIME, SPECIFICALLY BENRUS OR BULOVA, WAS THAT IN THREE YEARS THE BENRUS SINGLE CASE SYS WOULD WIN BENRUS THE FIRST 10,000 WATCH CONTRACT FOR THE VIETNAM WAR.

IMG_1654.JPG (78693 bytes)

FURTHER ON, TO MAKE THIS POINT,  IS THE FACT THAT BULOVA PROTESTED AND LOST IN THE FAVOR OF BENRUS.

IN FACT THAT SILE CASE WITH LUG/BEZEL WAS REPLACED BT BENRUS WITH THE PURE SINGLE CASESYSTEM. THAT SYSTEM WOULD BE ADOPTED BY THE US MILITARYAND EVERWATH MADE FOR THE VIETNAM WAR, NO MATTER THE COMPANY  SEIKO/WESTCLOX, BULOVAHAMILTON, FROM STEEL CASES TO PLASTIC THROWAWAYS, THEY ALL HADSINGLE CASE SYSTEMS THANKSTO BENRUS!

IMG_1665.JPG (64111 bytes)

THE PURE  SINGLE CASE BENRUS SYSTEM DATES FROM 1959 THROUGH 1965- THOUGH  IT'S DESIGN  WOULD CONTINUE UNTIL 1971!.   THE SINGLE CASED BENRUS HAD A ONE PIECE CASE, A DROP IN MOVEMENT WITH SPLIT STEM & SEALED LONG STEM TUBE CROWN AND WAS SEALED BY THE CRYSTAL ALONE.

[YES, THE WYLER SYSTEM HIJACKED BY BENRUS!]

IMG_1671.JPG (46764 bytes)

BENRUS DESIGNED THIS SYSTEM BY COPYING THE WYLER SINGLE CASE SYSTEM WITH OUT THE WYLER OUTER BEZEL. THOUGH MANY OTHER    MANUFACTURERS HAD PRODUCED SINGLE CASE DESIGNS, THE REASON WHY BENRUS CREATED THIS SYSTEM WAS THE 1960 RUMERS OF LARGE US GOVERNMENT WATCH CONTRACTS FOR THE UPCOMING VIETNAM WAR. WHEN THE US GOVERMENT RELEASED SPECIFICATIONS IN 1961 BENRUS HAD ALREADY RELEASED A WATCH TO THE PUBLIC WITH HALF THE SPECS.

 

IMG_1802.JPG (37793 bytes)

 

THE BENRUS STAR BURST
THE BENRUS THREE STAR X2
THE BENRUS THREESTAR X 1

THEN WHEN THE US GOVERNMENT UPDATED THE SPECS IN 1962, BENRUS WAS READY WITH A PROTOTYPE.WHEN BENRUS SUBMITTED THEIR DESIGN IN 1963 THEY ALSO SUBMITTED STUDIES OF THOSE REAL SALES AND USE OF THEIR DESIGN --LIKE THIS 3 STAR.

IMG_1688.JPG (54719 bytes)

NOT ONLY DID BENRUS EXCEED US SPECIFICATIONS THAT WOULD SURVIVE JUNGLE WARFARE IN VIETNAM, BUT INTRODUCED SEVERAL VERSIONS, INCLUDING THE FIRST NON-SERVICABLE THROW AWAYS.  THUS, IN 1964, BENRUS WAS THE FIRST MANUFACTURER TO RECEIVE A MAJOR CONTRACT WITH THE US MILITARY TO PRODUCE THE FIRST VIETNAM MILITARY WATCHES. OVER 10,000 WATCHES FOR OVER 300,000. [1964 DOLLARS].

IMG_1689.JPG (39483 bytes)

BENRUS BEAT OUT EVERY COMPANY INCLUDING THOSE THAT SUPPLIED THE US DURING WWI, WWII AND THE KOREAN WAR. IN FACT, BULOVA FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE US GOVERNMENTS. ONE OF THE ALLEDGATIONS WAS THAT BENRUS WAS NOT A US BASED MANUFACTURER.

ROCK

B-153564, MAY 4, 1964
TO BULOVA WATCH COMPANY, INC.:

FURTHER REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR LETTER OF FEBRUARY 20, 1964, PROTESTING THE AWARD OF A CONTRACT TO BENRUS WATCH COMPANY UNDER REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL NO. AMC/A/36-038-64-490/NS), DATED FEBRUARY 7, 1964.

 

IMG_1804.JPG (29253 bytes)

 



THE RECORD SHOWS THAT IT WAS DETERMINED BY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE AIR FORCE, NAVY AND ARMY, THAT SPECIFICATION MIL-W-3818A, DATED MARCH 12, 1956, REQUIRED REVISION TO ACCOMPLISH THE FOLLOWING RESULTS:

A. REDUCE THE VARIETY OF GRADES AND TYPES OF WATCHES.
B. ASSURE CONSISTENT QUALITY OF ITEMS.
C. ELIMINATE TESTING REQUIREMENTS OF ONE YEAR AND SUBSTITUTE IN LIEU THEREOF A GUARANTEE PROVISION.
D. INCORPORATE A NEW CASE DESIGN.

ACCORDINGLY, THE SPECIFICATION WAS FORMALLY REVISED ON OCTOBER 17, 1962, AND IS IDENTIFIED AS MIL-W-3818B.

IMG_1797.JPG (28779 bytes)


SUBSEQUENT TO THE APPROVAL OF SPECIFICATION MIL-W-3818B, ALL SOURCES ON THE PREVIOUS QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST, UNDER SPECIFICATION MIL-W 3818A, WERE INVITED BY LETTER DATED DECEMBER 6, 1962, TO MAKE APPLICATION FOR THE SUBMISSION OF THEIR PRODUCT OF FRANKFORD ARSENAL FOR QUALIFICATION TESTING. UPON RECEIPT AND APPROVAL OF THE APPLICATION AS REQUIRED BY PARAGRAPH 104 OF THE PAMPHLET ENTITLED “PROVISIONS GOVERNING QUALIFICATION,” SAMPLES WOULD BE AUTHORIZED TO BE SUBMITTED. THREE FIRMS SUBMITTED APPLICATIONS AND SAMPLES DURING 1963, NAMELY, BENRUS WATCH CO., INC., LONGINES-WITTNAUER WATCH CO., AND MATBEY-TISSOT WATCH CO., INC.

HOWEVER, BENRUS WATCH CO., INC., WAS THE ONLY SOURCE THAT SUCCESSFULLY MET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR APPROVAL. THEREFORE, THAT FIRM WAS FORMALLY NOTIFIED ON SEPTEMBER 16, 1963, THAT THE SAMPLES SUBMITTED WERE APPROVED AND THAT ITS PRODUCT WAS LISTED ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST FOR SPECIFICATION MIL-F-3818B. THE OTHER TWO SOURCES WERE NOTIFIED BY LETTER OF NOVEMBER 21, 1963, THAT THEIR SAMPLES DID NOT MEET MINIMUM SPECIFICATION REQUIREMENTS.

IMG_1800.JPG (33143 bytes)

 


ON THE BASIS OF MILITARY INTERDEPARTMENTAL PURCHASE REQUESTS FROM THE MARINE CORPS FOR A TOTAL OF 10,849 WATCHES, THE CONTRACTING OFFICER EXECUTED A DETERMINATION AND FINDINGS DATED FEBRUARY 2, 1964, AUTHORIZING NEGOTIATION UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF 10 U.S.C. 2304/A) (10) AND ASPR 3.210.2 PROMISED ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES REPORTED AS FOLLOWS:

“A. THIS WATCH IS A QUALIFIED PRODUCT AND THE TIME REQUIRED FOR TESTING WOULD UNDULY DELAY DELIVERIES.

“B. THE INTEREST OF THE GOVERNMENT REQUIRES ASSURANCE PRIOR TO AWARD THAT THE PRODUCT IS SATISFACTORY FOR ITS INTENDED USE AND NO OTHER MEANS OF QUALITY ASSURANCE IS AVAILABLE.

“C. AMPLE SOLICITATION AND OPPORTUNITY WAS AFFORDED THE CLOCK AND WATCH INDUSTRIES, RESULTING IN ONLY ONE QUALIFIED PRODUCT, NAMELY, BENRUS WATCH CO.’

IMG_1798.JPG (36386 bytes)

 



THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL WAS ISSUED ON FEBRUARY 7, 1964, WITH A CLOSING DATE OF FEBRUARY 24, 1964, TO BENRUS WATCH COMPANY, AS A SOLE SOURCE PREMISED ON THE FACTS SHOWN ABOVE. BENRUS QUOTED A UNIT PRICE OF $28.28 EACH FOR A QUANTITY OF 10,849 WRIST WATCHES OR A TOTAL COST OF $306,809.72. ON FEBRUARY 20, 1964, AN AMENDMENT WAS ISSUED EXTENDING THE CLOSING DATE TO FEBRUARY 27, 1964. THE PROCUREMENT ACTION WAS SYNOPSIZED, FOR SUBCONTRACTING ONLY, IN THE COMMERCE BUSINESS DAILY DATED FEBRUARY 17, 1964. AT YOUR REQUEST, YOU WERE FURNISHED A COPY OF THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL ON FEBRUARY 13, 1964.

IMG_1895.JPG (38048 bytes)

 


YOU ALLEGE, IN EFFECT, THAT FRANKFORD ARSENAL IS ATTEMPTING TO CIRCUMVENT CURRENT REGULATIONS IN THE AREA OF COMPETITION AND METHOD OF PROCUREMENT AND HAS FAILED TO CLARIFY AMBIGUITIES IN THE SPECIFICATION, PARTICULARLY WITH REFERENCE TO THE GUARANTEE PROVISION AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH 3.21 OF SPECIFICATION MIL-W-3818B, DATED OCTOBER 17, 1962.

YOU ALLEGE SPECIFICALLY THAT FRANKFORD ARSENAL, WITH KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR INTEREST IN THE PROCUREMENT OF BACK-TYPE WATCHES, CIRCUMVENTED PROCUREMENT REGULATIONS BY NOT OBTAINING COMPETITION.

THE RECORD SHOWS YOU WERE AFFORDED AMPLE TIME TO SUBMIT YOUR PRODUCT FOR QUALIFICATION TESTING AND POSSIBLE INCLUSION ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST. HOWEVER, YOU DID NOT SUBMIT YOUR PRODUCT UNTIL FEBRUARY 13, 1964, A LAPSE OF 14 MONTHS FROM THE DATE APPLICATIONS WERE ORIGINALLY REQUESTED. THE PRODUCT YOU SUBMITTED WAS REJECTED ON MARCH 11, 1964, FOR THE REASON THAT IT FAILED THE SHOCK TEST PERFORMANCE PRESCRIBED IN PARAGRAPH 4.8.9 OF SPECIFICATION MIL-W 3818B IN THAT OVER A PERIOD OF 20 HOURS THE WATCH GAINED 1 HOUR AND 22 MINUTES.

THIS FAILURE WAS CONSIDERED A SUFFICIENT CAUSE TO REJECT YOUR PRODUCT AS NOT QUALIFYING FOR INCLUSION ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST. SINCE ONLY ONE OF THREE OTHER SOURCES WHICH SUBMITTED THEIR PRODUCT FOR QUALIFICATION TESTING SUBMITTED A PRODUCT WHICH PASSED ALL THE REQUIREMENTS OF MIL-W-3818B AND WAS APPROVED FOR INCLUSION ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST, THE DETERMINATION BY THE CONTRACTING OFFICER THAT IT WAS IMPRACTICABLE TO OBTAIN COMPETITION, AND THAT A CONTRACT SHOULD BE NEGOTIATED WITH BENRUS, APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN PROPER.

IMG_1807.JPG (27692 bytes)



YOU FURTHER ALLEGE THAT THE PROPOSED PROCUREMENT SHOULD BE CANCELLED AND THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD PROCEED ON AN ADVERTISED PROCUREMENT TO ASSURE ADEQUATE COMPETITION.

IMG_1805.JPG (26890 bytes)



AS INDICATED ABOVE, COMPETITION COULD NOT BE ATTAINED BECAUSE ONLY ONE SOURCE WAS ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST AT THE TIME OF THE INITIATION OF THE PROCUREMENT ACTION, AND SO FAR AS WE ARE ADVISED NO OTHER PRODUCT HAS SINCE BEEN QUALIFIED. IN OUR DECISION OF AUGUST 9, 1961, 41 COMP. GEN. 93, IT WAS HELD THAT WHERE THERE IS ONLY A SINGLE SOURCE LISTED ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST, THE PROPER METHOD OF PROCUREMENT IS NEGOTIATION IN LIEU OF FORMAL ADVERTISING. WE SEE NO VALID BASIS UPON WHICH A DIFFERENT CONCLUSION MAY BE REACHED IN THE INSTANT CASE.

IN ADDITION, YOU ALLEGE THAT THE GUARANTEE PROVISION OF PARAGRAPH 3.21 OF MIL-W-38188 IS UNREASONABLE IN THAT IT REQUIRES THE CONTRACTOR TO BE LIABLE FOR THE REPAIR OF WATCHES THAT FAIL TO MEET ALL SPECIFICATIONS FOR A PERIOD OF TWO YEARS, AFTER ACCEPTANCE BY THE GOVERNMENT, WITHOUT ANY LIMITATION OF REPAIR RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER.

 

IMG_1811.JPG (39592 bytes)



SINCE THE THREE SOURCES THAT SUBMITTED THEIR PRODUCTS FOR TESTING DID NOT TAKE ANY EXCEPTION, OR REQUIRE INTERPRETATION AS TO THE GUARANTEE PROVISION IN THE SPECIFICATION, IT APPEARS THAT THOSE FIRMS WERE READY TO MEET SUCH PROVISION AND THAT THE PROVISION WAS CONSIDERED REASONABLE. ANY EVENT IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THE GUARANTEE PROVISION IS GERMANE TO YOUR PROTEST OR TO YOUR FAILURE TO HAVE A WATCH APPROVED FOR INCLUSION ON THE LIST.

AS TO THE ALLEGATION THAT BENRUS WATCH COMPANY IS NOT A MANUFACTURER OF WATCHES BUT ONLY IMPORTS CASES AND SELLS WATCH MOVEMENTS FROM FOREIGN SOURCES, WE ARE ADVISED THAT BENRUS POSSESSES MANUFACTURING FACILITIES IN THE UNITED STATES AND SWITZERLAND WHICH ARE UTILIZED IN THE PRODUCTION AND ASSEMBLY OF WATCHES AND, THEREFORE, QUALIFIES AS A MANUFACTURER UNDER ASPR 12-603.1.

THE BENRUS PROPOSAL SHOWS THAT IT IMPORTS THE MOVEMENT AND DIAL SETTING, DIAL STEM AND SPRING BARS, AND THAT THE CASE, CROWN, ATTACHMENTS, PACKING MATERIAL AND JEWEL BEARINGS (TURTLE MOUNTAIN ORDNANCE PLANT) ARE ALL DOMESTICALLY PRODUCED. ITS COST DATA INDICATES THAT THE COST OF THE DOMESTIC COMPONENTS IS CONSIDERABLY IN EXCESS OF 50 PERCENT OF THE COST OF ALL COMPONENTS, AND THEREFORE THE ITEM MUST BE CONSIDERED A DOMESTIC SOURCE AND PRODUCT UNDER ASPR 6-101 (D).

IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES WE FIND NO VALID BASIS FOR YOUR PROTEST, AND IT IS THEREFORE DENIED
