Benrus Wrist Alarm ref 3021 Stainless Steel circa 1960’s

SOLD

The Benrus Wrist Alarm. A watch extremely similar to its more famous brother, the “Bullitt”. Featuring 34 X 41mm polished finish stainless steel case, acrylic crystal, and original matte black dial with 24 hour indexes and triangular luminous hour indexes, luminous hands and red arrow tipped sweep seconds hand. The watch looks nearly indistinguishable from its brothers destined for military service, besides four key differences. That red tipped hand, the caseback being marked “Series # 3021”, the inclusion of the name Benrus on the dial, but most notably, the second crown powering the alarm. Unlike the Bullitt where the red tipped hand indicates the passing seconds, on the Wrist Alarm it marks the hand used to set and power the alarm. Powered by 17 jewel manual wind Benrus DS 10 movement, recently serviced and guaranteed. Offered with a NATO style or other sporty or military style strap.  This is truly and iconic watch, with this being a particularly great example.
