1945 Benrus Sky Chief Pilot’s Chronograph Watch With Valjoux 71 Movement


This is a fabulous all-original Benrus Sky Chief having the famed Valjoux 71 manual winding chronograph movement, which is accurately keeping time with all chronograph functions working perfectly. The original dial, having large sub-registers, original blued steel hands, and red chrono hand has a pleasant patina, which I think makes the watch look quite attractive. Most dials we are finding have been restored on these watches so it is great to find an original dial. The coin-edge bezel displays excellent condition and is not sloppy when turned. The large stainless steel case really looks fantastic for its circa 1945 vintage and measures a sprawling 38mm across. I highly recommend this watch, as any Valjoux 71 timepiece is steadily increasing in value.
