Very rare Benrus Enamel Tonneau men's Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K green gold with black and white enamel, circa 1927.
This spectacular solid gold Benrus has a very rare case design made by L. Lewitt & Co. of New York, with an Art Deco geometric pattern inlaid with black and white enamel. This is only the second example I have seen of this Benrus model. Lewitt also produced this case design for Bulova. This example is in excellent condition showing only light wear. Enamel is perfect and complete. Hinged caseback has a few dings. The case measures 35mm long and 24mm wide. Original dial is good, with some patina from age. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Benrus manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
