Benrus "Bullitt" Wrist Alarm c.1968

775.00

What do you get when you cross a Benrus “Bullitt” (made famous by Steve McQueen) and a Benrus 3021 series Wrist Alarm? One cool, and quite rare timepiece. That’s what.

With the exact same military styling derived from the Vietnam-era issued pieces & the direct use of the time only watch in the 1968 classic film “Bullitt”, a frontloading monocase design with no caseback (reduces moisture entry in the watch), and a nicely sized 34+mm size, these may be the best alarm watches on the market…if you can find them!

Function - This watch is wound manually. It is recommended to wind the crown 10-15 times to typically give an initial power reserve to last throughout the day. Avoid overwinding the watch once it feels tight. To wind the alarm, rotate the top crown clockwise like you would normally, then pull the crown out and rotate counter-clockwise until the alarm hand points at the desired alarm time.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. We guarantee that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
