Jochen Benzinger is the leading specialist worldwide for skeletonized and guilloché timepieces. Watch movements are skeletonized, guilloché, hand-engraved, and even sometimes technically modified by hand in his workshop in a traditional manner using special historical machines and tools. This allows him to create his own characteristic style of horological art. For many years, Benzinger and business partner Georg Bartkowiak have manufactured chiefly in the name of big brands such as IWC, Fabergé, Chronoswiss and Tourneau. BENZINGER unique pieces are available in steel or gold cases.
