BENRUS MIL Spec Type II Class A Beams Re-Issue Limited Edition 300 Swiss Quartz
We take trades against any of our watches!!! We also buy watch packages!
This Watch is a “reissue” of the classic Benrus Military Issued Type II MIL-W-50717
This is most unusually and unexpectedly, a JDM Model (That’s “Japanese Domestic Model”)
This was released in exceptionally limited numbers I think in steel and PVD coating (a reported 300 of each variation) for retail by BEAMS.
There are Benrus Type I and Type II’s reissues available in Japan exclusively.
The Benrus Type II was exclusively only available in BEAMS Stores and they only made 300 of them three years ago. They are unavailable at BEAMS now, and sell on Japanese auctions for $1500.00 sometimes. They are Swiss quartz and 10 ATM watches, stamped “BEAMS+” on the back for the BEAMS Stores.
43mm wide including almost fully integrated crown
47.55mm lug tip to lug tip
19.5mm lug spacing
Spring Bars Bars
Original “Volcano” Dome SAPHIRE Glass Crytal
Again it’s just astonishing that the re-issue is just close to form and matching the 73 MIL Spec watch. In essence, if Benrus were given specification MIL-W-50717 this is what they would have produced.
The best bit about the re-edition is the dial and this is true for the Type II ONLY there were other variations and the type I but these were not “Like For Like” representations,
The type two is almost a clone of the original MIL-W-50717, swapping over only the original radioactive tritium lume for a now super-powerful luminova luminous compound. But again we love this “Sterile” dial it would have been so easy and common for Benrus to “slap on” a load of “extras” that would not be true to form.
