Product Details

This is an amazing watch.

With this piece, Jochen combines a hand skeletonized dial with a highly decorated and hand engraved movement to create a watch that is ornate, yet refined.

The sterling silver dial has been designed so that the hours and minutes are relocated to the top while the seconds are shown via the sub-second display at the bottom, which is characteristic of the Subcription collection.  

The sterling silver dial features a chapter ring with Roman numerals and the entire dial has been skeletonized to expose the platinum blue plated and the meticulously hand skeletonized movement.



Other features include:

  • A partially cut out dial to view the movement from the front
  • Skeletonized movement, bridges and ratcheted crown wheel
  • Blue platinum plated exposed gears visible from the front
  • Hands which are blued by hand to match the coloring of the dial and gears
  • Case made in Pforzheim, Germany to Jochen's specifications and design
  • Sterling silver dial with frosted ring with painted Roman numerals



This watch is made using traditional Pforzheim techniques (click here to learn more about these machines and the manufacturing process). The process of making just the dial can take days.

Next, he cuts out portions of the dial using a small engraver's hand saw. These cuts must be perfect - one slip can ruin the dial which has already been guillochéd.

This watch like all of Jochen's watches is one watch that you will want to turn over to show what a true artist can accomplish.  This watch is manually winding with a power reserve of 44 hours, and features a large sub seconds hand at 6.

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

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

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.
