I just came across an old Benrus watch at my grandfather's house this weekend. I did a little HW on the company to learn about the brand, but it gave me no leads on the different models.
I do not have a picture right now it is stainless with fading gold finish, a gold face with basic black arabic numerals. Hour, minute and second hand in black. BENRUS below 12 and 17 jewels above 6. It is manual wind, still works well once wound. The plastic crystal is cracked across the whole face but not so that it endangers the movement at this point.
case back is solid stainless. only has ID # of 1318 on back.
My question is regarding these watches, what is their value, who and how could one refurbish it and is it worth or able to have crystal replaced.
I am mostly concerned with the sentimental value of the piece and would like to wear it as a rememberance of my grandfather.
Sorry for the length, thanks for the help.
