Benrus questions "Click" to Login or Register 
posted
Greetings all.
My sister recently gave me an old camera that she found at a yard sale and tucked inside was this watch. Other than knowing the name, I know absolutely nothing about Benrus and haven't had much luck finding anything. I'm kind of just looking for any of the usual; name, age, common or not, that sort of thing. Since this was a total surprise, there's no emotional attachment. I'm also wondering if this is worth having fixed up. If it's a decent watch, I may get it fixed and give it back to my sister. Any and all comments are welcome and happily accepted! Thanks all!
