Benrus Dive watch Update

Since I wrote the review of Benrus Type 1 dive watch (that belonged to my friend) last year, I finally manage to acquire a Type 1 for myself. It is the sterile version without any military inscriptions on the caseback other than a serial number (also known as the CIA model). It was purchased along with a Type 2 from a collector of Vietnam-era NAVY SEAL items. I shall write a review soon on the sterile Type 1, but before then, I'll let the readers of broadarrow.net enjoy the preliminary photos... Click the photos for larger image.
