The watch’s minimalist and basic design exemplifies “form following function”. A robust, automatic 17 jewel modified ETA 2620 movement is housed in a 40mm, bead-blasted, one piece steel case, and topped with a 3mm thick acrylic crystal. Although the case was designated as “one piece”, it was actually two pieces, and featured a permanently press-fit caseback in an effort to increase water resistance. As a result, the watch was capable of reaching depths of over 1200 feet. Adding to its robust nature, the Types I and II are non-magnetic, which allowed divers to work with magnetic mines underwater. Finishing the look, Benruses were secured to the wrist with NATO straps, preventing any chance of the watch coming detached from the wearer’s wrist.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
