Just a Minute with the Benrus Series #3061
Words by Windup Watch Shop

Let’s take just a minute with the Benrus Series #3061, a reintroduction of the Bullitt watch. Benrus has relaunched the series #3061 for a modern audience, staying very true to the original but with some updates. The new field watch measures 39.5mm in diameter, 48mm in length, and 12mm thick. The series #3061 is paired with a 20mm black leather rally strap with red accents, and comes with a Benrus signed travel pouch.

Inside is a Soprod P024, an automatic movement that features hacking, hand-winding, and a 38 hour power reserve. Other features include an acrylic crystal, “phantomless” date - just one pull to hack - and a 5 atmos water resistant stainless steel case. Shot here on a 7.25” wrist, the #3061 is an awesome throwback to the civilian version of the classic field watch. 

In pretty much every way - apart from scale - this makes  for a great, modern interpretation of the iconic watch seen from the 1968 classic Bullitt. If you too would like your wrist to look a little more like Steven McQueen’s, you can! All for only $595 dollars! Discover more from this classic field watch in the Windup Watch Shop!
