Yes I would still bench bleed the brake master cylinder. Its not that hard and it doesn't take that much time to insure a correct repair.

I have had good luck gravity bleeding starting with a dry system (no fluid in lines and new master). It will take a long time however for the fluid to get to the bleeders.
