This specific Benrus Type II B is very rare due to the fact that both the dial and hands are non-luminous, almost all Benrus Type II dive watches have a lume applied to both the dial and the hands, this variant was issued to the most covert of teams that required a timepiece that did not give off any light source. We have only seen a couple of comparable examples that were built with a non-luminous specification making this specific example very very rare and uncommon.


Brand Bernus
Style Military Dive Watch
Model Type @
Serial N88X
Size Men's

The case is in wonderful original condition showing the original factory bead blasted finishing and sharp case lines. The bezel does show some wear but is original to the watch and common for the reference. The watch will be supplied on the original U.S.Navy Issued Nato Strap


The dial is in remarkable condition showing very minimal patina. This specific dial variant is very uncommon and referred to as a "Non-Luminous Dial" because both the dial and hands do not possess any luminescent material as to not show any light while undercover.
