The Benrus military watch is a precision timer and a utilitarian piece of equipment coming from Benrus.  This company is a known watch maker and was very active in the watch market in the 1920s and the 1930s. The watches of the company are sold for the civilians, but most of its efforts have been focused on the needs of the military sector; this was especially true during the WWII years. This was the time of great growth for the company as Benrus was tasked to produce items that can be used by the military. The watch company maintained top secret government assignments and the company produced timing devices that can be used in bombs and other weapon applications. 

The Benrus military watches came in different types as well.

One good type of the Benrus military watch was the Benrus Type I Class A dive watch. This specific watch was used by the members of the UDT-Seal Green Berets and the Special Forces during the latter part of the Vietnam War. This watch was known as the ultimate in military dive watches. This Type I watch from Benrus was a Class A model meaning that this belongs to the top class of military watches. The appearance of the watch’ dial and some of its designs are borrowed from Rolex and the watch did away with any writings and logos thus making the watch more legible. The reliability of the Benrus military watch Type- II Class- A has led to the development of other types of watches. Examples of these watches include the Type II Class A and the Type II Class B. The latter type is different since it featured the 12/24 hour dial; this was also used by the members of the Armed Forces who didn’t participate in special operations.
