Benrus “Engraved Tank” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in chromium plate, circa 1929.
This spectacular Benrus has an ornately engraved casebody and flexible lugs. This is one of only a few of this factory-signed, as of yet unidentified, men's model that I have seen. It is in excellent condition showing virtually no wear to the bezel and lugs. The case still retains its brushed and polished finishes. Hinged caseback is very good and unengraved, with some moderate pitting to the chrome plating. The case measures 40mm long and 30mm wide. Refinished luminous dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 21-jewel Benrus Shock Absorber manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
