Regulator

The Regulator watches have impressive, sophisticated guilloché patterns on the dial, which give the watch its unique aesthetic. Guilloché is a decorative technique of engraving a pattern into a material. The dial is not the only intricately decorated component; other parts of the watch are also refined by hand.

Subscription

The Subscription combines luxury with classic design elements. Grain or moiré patterns add even more beauty to the dial. The elegance of this timepiece is emphasized by its decentralized Breguet hands, Roman numerals, and onion crown. The movement can be viewed through the sapphire glass case back.

Skeleton

The Skeleton collection gives you a look at the inner workings of the watch, allowing you to see the many different pieces working together in tandem. Benzinger painstakingly skeletonizes the watches with a goldsmith saw. A sapphire glass case back showcases the intricately decorated movement.

Classic

The Classic collection highlights Jochen Benzinger's special craftsmanship. The watches in the collection also show the time in a unique format: an hour display with jumping numerals. The Classic Chronograph Time Machine's golden rotor can be engraved upon request.

Unique timepieces for individuals

Benzinger creates unique watches which emphasize the individuality and style of each wearer. The customer's wishes are worked into the design, making each watch completely unique. The manufacturer retains almost-forgotten watchmaking techniques; the company is one of the few that still perfectly masters historical techniques like guilloché. Watches of this caliber are difficult to find anywhere else.

Traditional decorations

Jochen Benzinger uses an 80-year-old and 500-kilogram machine to guilloché. The colossal tool is a hit at watch shows. Guilloché experienced its zenith of popularity in the 18th and 19th centuries; it was used to decorate jewelry, writing utensils, and many metal objects. Today, this craft is making a comeback in decorating mechanical watches.

The specialist for engravings and skeletonizing

Engraving and skeletonizing are some of the most important details of a Benzinger watch. Engraving is one of the oldest decorative skills. In 1500, Albrecht Dürer made the art of engraving flourish with his works. Skeletonizing is a process in which Benzinger creates several holes in a movement. Through these fine decorative details, each watch becomes a unique masterpiece.
