New Benrus Type I

Also noticed Benrus gives a 15% discount for military/LEO/First Responders. Hopefully it applies to this when released. I was approved in minutes. I assume if you qualify for GovX you’d qualify for their discount.

New Benrus Type I

Saw this on another forum. I’m intrigued. Anyone heard any other details? Did some group just buy the Benrus name/designs?

Re: Hodinkee Watch Insurance

JM has gotten lax over the years. At first several years ago it had to be an official appraisal, but my last watch from earlier this year they accepted a sorta receipt from Takuya.

Re: New Seiko Thread

The 55th anniversary trilogy watches are in at our local AD. The hi-beat 62MAS is best of the three, by far. If anyone’s looking, I can intro you for a BoD discount. :salute: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/GBkGBF7apotjQMZ9tu7aRI-cHEE2RBRL6AKoxnVSMw8Uk2prNe7bBIQ0paJQTOVKKxD6_mupPVrKUtOv1F3SGZVT5u...

Good question, Carlo. They were posted on WUS as the “new confirmed Alpinists”, but I would think it odd since they already just updated the line I believe.
