Originally made by guilloché artist, Jochen Benzinger, as a gift for Hartwig Balke’s personal collection. The two watchmakers are lifelong collaborators from Pforzheim, Germany. Hartwig taught Benzinger how to regulate a 7750 caliber automatic movement, and Benzinger taught Hartwig how to operate a rose engine on frosted sterling silver. The MASTER CHRONOGRAPH tells this story of artistic collaboration & friendship.
