    Don't know.

    A lot of history is to be read here: Ceasuri Romania | Ceasuri de colectie | OREX | BENRUS | Ceasuri militare
    Some Benrus watches featured a three-colour-logo which refers to the flag of Romania. The Benrus company was founded by Benjamin, Oscar and Ralph Lazrus who were immigrants from Romania. Maybe three stars = Benjamin, Oscar and Ralph ?
    Kind regards

    The 3 star watches are (to the best of my knowledge) all auto-winds, and I've always just assumed that was their basic identification for auto-wind watches. I have vague recollections of it originally representing the third level of functionality (at the time, a "basic" watch just had hour and minute, more advanced watches had a seconds register, and auto-wind was the "third" function.)
