Benzinger Regulator Modern (polished bezel)
The Regulator – deconstructed time
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 Regulator Modern is fresh and light conveying a sense of space and time. The simple and elegant sterling silver dial works well with the tone-in-tone sub dials creating just enough contrast to ensure legibility without adding clutter. The hand-skeletonised movement within has a blue finish for a refreshing dash of colour and the XII numeral on the hour dial adds an unexpected and cheeky splash of colour. This timepiece is a true classic in every sense.
