With summer right around the corner, aBlogtoWatch is offering up a field watch companion for all your getaways! For June 2020, we’re giving away the durable, vintage styled Benrus Field watch. With a design legacy that stretches back to the ’60s and an association with the legendary Steve McQueen, this is a classic field watch design that’s sure to stand the test of time.
While sized for modern audiences at 41mm, the stainless steel case of the Benrus Field is timelessly sporty, with wide athletic lugs and a strong brushed finish. While the shape would feel right at home with the ’60s original, the quality of this case is thoroughly modern, with impressive touches like a signed and intricately knurled crown, a mineral crystal display caseback, and a durable 100 meters of water resistance.
The dial is a faithful recreation of the original Benrus Series #3061, with a distinctive set of triangular indices coupled with bold, khaki-toned numerals. The original’s classic syringe hands and trademark red-tipped seconds hand also return here, while most of the dial text is blacked out for a cleaner look. Lastly, the Benrus Field adds a punch of distinctive color with a red, white, and blue three-star logo at 12 o’clock.
Benrus powers the Field with the dependable Miyota 9015 automatic movement but dresses this durable workhorse up with a variety of decorations. These include Côtes de Genève across all movement plates along with a custom signed and skeletonized rotor, leaving this powerplant as handsome as it is reliable.
Benrus finishes this classic field watch design off with a versatile and handsome tan leather strap featuring an embossed Benrus emblem. This watch is currently priced at $1,095.
