Benrus Citation

Prolly from 1950's to early 1960's.
Very nice design and it runs great.
I think this one might be called the 'Corinth' due to the lug design.
Dial is excellent..without having been refinished.

Maybe MK can assist with more information.

This watch makes my dick stiffer than an old Aunt Peg video.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I don't think it's the Corinth. The lugs on the Corinth were a bit fancier, with additional protrusions on the flanks of the lugs, as if they were an extension of the straight endpiece of the bracelet. The flat bezel and the general silhouette of the lugs do resemble the Corinth, though.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of catalogue scans online, and in the ones I could find, this particular watch isn't featured. Wish I could be of more help.

Similar model here, original box, guarantee and model shown as Corinth.
I would put this as early 1950's, no later than '55.
Beautiful watch buddy.

If 1955 then 92.50 was a good chunk of change. Just south of 900 bucks!

Quite true, fog.
