 Some Information 

The term super compressor refers to a specific case sealing method that makes the case more watertight the deeper it travels underwater. Our Benrus has a classic 36mm case with dual crowns and a unique internal rotating dive bezel. The purpose behind this internal bezel was to avoid accidental rotation, a problem that divers had occasionally with the external rotating bezel. The design was found very useful for warm water divers and very inconvenient for cold water divers who used gloves. Unfortunately, the super compressor case was found to be no better at preventing water intrusion than other 1960's innovations, like screw down crowns and so on. Our Benrus comes with a maxi style dial, cathedral hands, with a 100% original case, 100% original dial, 100% original Bezel, fully serviced movement that's working perfectly, a 1-year warranty, and the peculiar 666 ft printed on the dial, something which may have been done to deliberately provoke people considering that 70% of the U.S. population in the 1970's was Christian.
