About Benarus

BenarusBenarus [ben•air•us] A Benarus watch is a high quality professional instrument produced in limited quantities and is available to collectors, professional divers, adventurers and watch enthusiasts throughout the world.

Benarus watches share the idea that 'Less is More', and all of our dials and parts are easy to read as well as functional. We use Superluminova on our dials to achieve the brightest possible lume. We also use sapphire crystals and case materials such as 316L stainless steel, Cusn8 bronze, and titanium that are water resistant from 500 meters to 2,500 meters. We use the ETA and Miyota mechanical automatic movements.

Our Product Development Process

We may seem slower paced than the big name brands, but we design every watch carefully and allow our customers to see the process from design drawings to sample watches to the finished piece. We produce in small quantity cycles of 100 or so watches per design. When we begin production of a new model we accept reservations for the watches with just your name and email address. We do not take a deposit for the reservation. It usually takes 5-6 months from the time we begin production until the watches are finished and ready to ship to the customer. We will contact you when the reserved watch is finished and ready for purchase and shipping. Our website will be clear and easy to follow when a new project has started and the reservation list is either open or full. When a reservation list is full, we can add you to the back up list and contact you when we have an order that cancels.
