Product Details

Jochen creates this dial by hand using an engine turned rose engine (an antique machine no longer in production).  Each cut is individual, back and forth and one slip can ruin the dial. 

Next, take a look at the back, and you'll see skeletonization like no other.  The gold colors are rich, the patterns elaborate and the movement really takes on the level of art not unlike a famous painting.

To own a Jochen Benzinger watch is not only an honor, it's a rarity as his production is so low.

Other Features

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.

This watch is manually winding with a power reserve of 46 hours, and features a sub seconds hand at 6. 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.

Rose Engine

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.
