The Benrus Watch Company was one of the watch manufacturing companies of this era. This company was founded in New York in 1921 by three brothers – Oscar, Benjamin and Ralph Lazrus. These three brothers came into business at a time when wrist watches had just been introduced and were sold at exuberant prices. The three brothers created a name for themselves when they seized the opportunity of providing wrist watches at a moderate price for the benefit of the common man. By 1951, Benrus watches had swiped the market and had become the third biggest watch manufacturer after Bulova and Hamilton. The Benrus Company was fully operational until the quartz revolutions in the 1970’s.
