Welcome to the American Forum!
(I take it you were a Diff'rent Strokes fan... poor Gary!):sad:
Anyway from the looks of that Benrus (we call em' bennies here)
It is 70-80's quartz, not a solid gold or precious metal watch,
but kinda cool looking.
Is it an heirloom? Because they tend to have more of a "value" than just money.
There are several dozen "similar" Quartz Benrus on ebay right now from $7.99 to $75
"Buy it now"
Enjoy the Forum and stop by anytime. We love Bennies!:thumbup1:
If you go to the main page on ebay just type in "benrus quartz" and go to the "jewelery/watches"Thanks for the welcome. I was a fan as a kid of Diff'rent Strokes. :cool1:
It's not an heirloom at all. My roomate got it as a gift some years ago, left it here and said I could sell it if I wanted to.
It sounds like you don't think it's probably worth very much based on eBay. I haven't been able to find it with the serial number or by combing through images of Benrus watches on Google, etc. -- could it be that this watch is rare or just not worth being up anywhere with a photo?
Also, could you please steer me towards those eBay links? Thank you so much for your help. :biggrin:
If you go to the main page on ebay just type in "benrus quartz" and go to the "jewelery/watches"
column and you will find a bunch... they are all about the same "relative" value.
Your watch is "cooler" vs. a big ticket item.
Like I said, it is a battery operated, non mechanical Benrus, that in these times doesn't command
a high value, but is fun to wear. (IMO)
