Benrus Sky Chief

Benrus is among those great American brands of the past, having started in NYC. What many may not know is the proud American aviation heritage that Benrus had. Starting in 1929, Benrus became the official watch for the U.S. mail-carrying pilots of two major cargo airways...
In 1940, Benrus launched what would prove to be one of the company’s most-desirable horological legacies: the Sky Chief. Around the time of the introduction, Benrus began referring to itself as the “Official Watch of Famous Airlines,” which it would continue stating for the next two decades. Among the airlines for which Benrus served as the official pilot timepiece were Delta, KLM, NWA, and TWA.
