Inspiration

Overview

Having forged a relationship based on a love of fine watches, Kay Jaeger and Jochen Benzinger decided to launch their own brand when the watches on offer just didn’t quite deliver on what they were looking for.

Jaeger & Benzinger have always been vocal about their love of Abraham-Louis Breguet’s style and, whereas with their other Editions this has been tempered with modern touches, this limited-edition Edition 3 Vintage is their unabashed take on this look.

This is refined watchmaking at its best; a dress watch for those who want what peeks out from under their shirt cuff to be a little different from the rest.

For once you get a taster of Benzinger’s talent on the dial with the guilloche design in the centre of the sterling silver dial.

However, turn the watch over and once again the hand finishing is to be marvelled at. Aside from the guilloche, perlage and hand engraving, it’s worth noticing that this movement is Jaeger & Benzinger’s own and based on the FHF96 calibre, which Jaeger & Benzinger have adopted and elevated with the help of Benzinger’s considerable skills to something less workhorse and more wonderful.

Inspiration

From its beautifully hand-guilloched dial to the blued hands and pared-back design, this is Jaeger & Benzinger’s love letter to their main source of inspiration: Abraham-Louis Breguet.
