GRIEB & BENZINGER: High End watches based on historic movements

Feb 10, 2010
GRIEB & BENZINGER craft unique wristwatches based on exceptional historic movements. With its mostly historic special machinery, the workshop reminds of an industrial museum and the spirit of Abraham-Louis Breguet.

Original movements with complications such as minute repeaters originally made by the greatest old masters of horology such as Patek Philippe built from around 1880 to 1920 are restored and modified here, using traditional handcraft from the old days when the historic movements have been built to create unique GRIEB & BENZINGER PLATNUM style timepieces on customer’s request.

Classic old watches are thus turned into new exclusive fine platinum masterpieces. Amongst other things, the conception is based on traditional – and nowadays very rare – techniques of craftsmanship for the finishing of the movements: skeletonising, engraving and guilloché by hand.

There are no more than a handful of specialists world-wide to master this art of traditional handcraft today. Thus only a maximum of ten restored timepieces per year are created in this classic and explicitly time-consuming way, each single one of them a true unicum.

The latest GRIEB & BENZINGER one-off is based on an Patek Philippe Minute Repeater movement built around 1887. This special movement has been modified into a GRIEB & BENZINGER style regulator – restored, guilloché, hand-engraved and coated with blue platinum to be ready to turn into a new exclusive solid of 130 g platinum case timepiece.
