Product Details

This is one of our favorite Benzinger designs and demonstrates the art of hand skeletonization and engraving perhaps like no other Benzinger.

To create this watch we asked Jochen to make a complete skeleton watch for us with the final movement decorated in rose gold.

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.

With this watch Jochen proves again why his old world craftsmanship skills are among the elite in his profession. Everything is done by hand, using original engraving and engine turning machines, many of which are antiques. You can learn more about how Jochen Benzinger creates watches by clicking here. You'll also see the very machines and workshop where he works.

This watch is manually winding with a power reserve of 44 hours.

Sapphire crystals on both sides. The presentation box is elaborate, and naturally features engraved plates describing and naming the watch.

This watch ships with a black Benzinger calf leather strap and deployant buckle.


Watch specifications are provided by the respective watch manufacturer and/or other sources. Although we use best efforts to provide accurate information, we reserve the right to make corrections when advised of specification changes and/or content errors.


The Rose Engine


The rose engine is a type of geometric lathe, many of which date back more than 100 years.

Operated entirely by hand, each cut must be precisely made or the entire watch component is ruined and must be started again.

There are very few craftsmen in the world who are trained as experts in the operations of rose engines, engine turning and hand guilloche, and these techniques are employed in all Jochen Benzinger watches.

The Graver


This hand tool is the same as employed by the 16th century German painter and engraver Albrecht Durer.

Jochen Benzinger uses these graver tools to cut and decorate movement parts.

Skeleton Saw


A skeleton saw (or "fine fretsaw") is usually associated with work done by master goldsmiths, but Jochen Benzinger use this tool to create the skeletonizing of the bridges.

Verified Owner Comments: This is the most beautiful watch I have ever seen, far better in person than what you see on the web site!

Customer service from Watchbuys is great as well, I called at closing time on Friday on a holiday and had the watch in my hands Saturday morning!
