    I like the patina on this one...

    This Benrus Calendar arrived today, and I really like the patina.

    Aparently the small triangular red, white and blue flag means this is an official airline watch. Although I am not 100% certain what that actually signifies, i.e. watch purchased and issued by the airline, or sanctioned by the airline and bought by crew themselves, or something else . The colors of the flag and the date pointer really pull the whole thing together.

    Another nice pointer there trim.

    Have you read this thread about the Benrus logo? https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/ben...go-313708.html

    Thanks Marrick. I still have a couple more on the way from my Christmas splurge.

    We've had a slight update on the Benrus logos over on MWR since that post you mention. You'll see in that thread I originally did think this one was a citation (but I was wrong wrong wrong!). Dan-Catalin was kind enough to give me a good scan of the add for my records. Airlines are better than horses imo anyway

    Just did a retro edit on my first post to make things clearer.

    Cool! That seems fairly authoritative. Airline it is.
