The Story Behind The Benrus Stainless Steel Field Watch:

When the founder of Marathon Watch came across a limited collection of 600 ETA 2801 Benrus movement pieces, he purchased the collection and decided that due to the historical collector demand, he should bring back the original design with some improvements due to advances in watch technology. From this, a new modern General Purpose Mechanical watch was created. The improvements from old to new are:

  • The movements were always from multiple manufacturers such as BFG, FHF, Nouvelle Lemania, or Excelsior Park, and now are all ETA 2801 movements by BENRUS
  • Larger case to accommodate state-of-the-art Tritium glass tubes
  • Horological Plexiglass has been replaced with scratch resistant Sapphire
  • Increased water resistance levels
  • Screw in watch back which creates a better dust/water resistant seal
  • Included special shoulder-less strap for easy maintenance or strap change
  • Larger and stronger crown with a multiple O-ring system for water and dust resistance
