Benzinger Regulator Black Rose Gold
Regulator Black Rose Gold – this is when you know you’ve made it in the world
It would be fair to describe Benzinger’s Regulator as ‘time deconstructed’ with separate dials for the hours, minutes and seconds positioned thoughtfully within the dial. The regulator is a classic timekeeping system that eliminates all superfluous functions to focus on the hour. Benzinger’s Regulator features a non-coaxial (non centred) hour, minute and second hand display that separates these functions onto different sub dials for more accurate timing and legibility.
Allured by the possibilities offered by the Regulator, Jochen Benzinger created his own collection of classically-inspired timepieces based upon this traditional movement. In true Benzinger style every aspect of his Regulators are ennobled from the elegantly guilloched dials to the hand-skeletonised and hand-engraved manual movements beating within.
The Black Regulator set in a massive 18ct rose gold case is simply stunning. The black, dial ground plate is beautifully guilloched in a fine Barley pattern providing a wonderful backdrop to the sterling silver sub dials. Rose gold hands unite the look and tie into the breathtaking case finished off with a hand-fluted bezel. Not surprisingly, the most beautiful aspect of this watch is under the dial. The exquisitely hand ennobled movement, glimpsed though the open sub dial at 6 o’clock, can be fully viewed through the generous sapphire crystal exhibition case back. The Regulator Black Rose Gold impresses the onlooker but delights the wearer – just as it should be with such a work of craftsmanship.
