The story begins with a 25-year-old engraver. At the age of 25, he took over a small engraving workshop from a retired elderly couple, and got some old machines that had experienced vicissitudes. Since getting these machines, he has received special requests from well-known watch companies, such as Chronoswiss and IWC, and has since embarked on a journey closely connected with watches. He learns from every watch he makes, he evolves with his watch, he is Jochen Benzinger.
Today, it may be difficult for you to imagine that a well-known independent watchmaker originally wanted to be a dentist. I think the commonality between the two is a pair of skilful hands. It is precisely because of this pair of skilful hands and the talent for creativity and design that Jochen became a gold carver as a matter of course. After he completed his apprenticeship and won many awards, he was able to take over a small business by chance. He even got special permission from the craft association, but he actually completed his master craftsman's diploma while working. With the changes in the jewelry market, Jochen slowly shifted his focus from jewelry to the watch industry. It is also because of his experience in the jewelry industry that his watch works over the years are full of artistic design sense.
