An "anomaly watch" today -- but also a very unusual one.

Anomaly because its size (42mm) suggests it's a sports watch, but the fine "guilloché main" finish suggests very dressy application. I find it better with casual attire than with black tie.

Unusual, because Jochen Benzinger produces about thirty watches each year in his workshop in Pforzheim -- each of which he will make (in three or four basic styles) to your bespoke decoration requirements. Every watch he makes is unique.

It says "made in Germany" (in German) on the dial, despite the fact that the movement is a Swiss Unitas 6498 -- not that you'd ever recognize it after JB has skeletonised and decorated it by hand (and added a swan-neck regulator).

One of the nice things about dealing with Benzinger is that, when you ring them up, it is very likely that the man himself will answer :cool:

For Thursday, decided to renew acquaintances with the mechanical goodness of the Molnija Watch - Chemical Warrior.
