One of the Very Best Military Watches Is Back

Hear ye, hear ye - come one and all, military watch nerds No, really, I swear, this is dope: Benrus, once-defunct, NY-founded American watch company, has remade one of their most famous watches, The Type I/II Previously, you had to go through Basic Underwater Demolition School or raise fifth columns in Southeast Asia in order to get your hands on one of these.

The new Type I is largely true to the original: 42mm steel, bead-blasted case; bi-directional 12-hour bezel; automatic ETA movement; lumed hands and dial; and 300m of water resistance 2681 with hacking, the new LE is true to the original's dial design, which featured only round hour plots, lumed sword hands and a minute/seconds track - there were no extraneous elements, such as an inner 24-hour track, to distract from the watch's legibility A matte finish to the case kept the watch's visibility low, while the asymmetric shape ensured protection for the crown and a highly robust, impact-resistant design.

Such is also true of the LE, which even features case back engravings that near match those of the original Limited to 1,000 pieces and priced at $1,695, the new Type 1 is a military watch collector's dream. . Source
