Jochen Benzinger is considered one of the world's best watch artisans for engraving, guilloche dials and skeletonized movements. Jochen lives and works near the Black Forest region of Germany, and that is where he creates masterpieces.
All his work done is completely by hand using machines that are, in many cases, over 100 years old. You can learn more about how Jochen Benzinger creates watches by clicking here

With this watch Jochen proves again why his old-world craftsmanship skills are among the elite in his profession.
Full skeleton watches have always been on the wish list of serious watch collectors, but when you add the fact that this watch is made by hand (and not skeletonized by a computer program) the result is amazing. In other words, this is the real thing.
To create this watch, Jochen makes extensive use of historic rose engines, while the movement is hand skeletonized and hand engraved, using many patterns and complementary colors. The entire movement must be completely disassembled with each movement part hand engraved and polished, many using elaborate designs. Jochen designs and completes his creations in-house along with a group of German master watchmakers.
This watch features a hand-skeletonized dial in sterling silver with a ribbon guilloche and Breguet frost finish, and the steel hands are designed in a leaf shape. The movement and groundplate are guilloched and skeletonized with a blue platinum finish. The movement also features flame-blued screws and white Rhodium.
The case is made in Pforzheim with high grade steel, has a combination of polished and brushed finishes, and features a sapphire crystal on the front and back.
This watch ships with a calf leather strap with a stainless steel buckle.
