ONE-OF-A-KIND WATCHES BY JOCHEN BENZINGER Pforzheim
Fabergé, the famous court jeweler to the Russian tsar, excelled at guilloche work. Albrecht Dürer redefined engraving. And Jochen Benzinger is a master of three of these arts: guilloching, engraving and skeletonizing watches. He masters a craft that is threatened with extinction in the age of mass production. A machine, however, can perhaps produce quite passable stopwatches for physical education teachers, but not a one-off with character that inspires watch enthusiasts.
Jochen Benzinger, on the other hand, knows like no other how to breathe a soul into solid matter. At the headquarters of Benzinger Uhrenunikate in Pforzheim, he uses machines and tools, some of which are more than 100 years old. He meticulously processes his works of art to perfection. He sits there calmly and totally immersed in his work. The world is a clock. Everything else no longer exists. Jochen Benzinger doesn't feel the urge to check the news on his cell phone. He can absolutely focus his attention. You can see from this: Greatly refined one-offs are only created in really qualified, capable hands. They are created by personalities who are themselves impressively unique.
