    I would think that very few people can tell you for certain, but it looks a little gaudy for that type of watch to me.....

    Can find any old Benrus ads that might depict the box?

    I haven't seen any , I figured I ask here . The box was bought seperately . It is a little "bright" but the theme is consistant . I just did the watch and shipped the two as a package . Somebody is getting a nice B'day gift .

    Here's one that was for sale and claims to have the original box: FS: BENRUS SKYCHIEF Pilot Chronograph with complete boxes

    Thanks a lot Rob!! That one makes a little more sense . The other is pretty nice in person ,but I thought it was too small . I didn't realise that the " official Watch of Famous Airlines " was a re-occuring theme for them . Thanks again .

    This site has one of the better "histories" of Benrus, and explains the evolution of that slogan a bit:
