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, 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).

"Hergestellt" could also mean "constructed" or "fashioned".. "in" is a strange choice (but common) but could also mean "at". 

So it could mean "made in Germany" but also mean "constructed at Germany" "fashioned in Germany"..

Colloquially, "Herstellung" is the equivalent of "manufacture".

"In" is normal  --  e.g. "ich befinde mich in Deutschland".

JB doesn't AFAIK actually "make" anything; he buys everything in and decorates before assembly and regulation. The back of the case carries the legend "handgraviert", "handskeletiert", "handguillochiert" and "Benzinger Unikate".

The latest I just cannot take my eyes off of. I call it a Sudor SubMaster. Part Seiko Marine Master (dial & hands), part Tudor Black Bay (bezel insert), and part Rolex Submariner (case, bezel & bracelet). Haven't determined yet which bracelet option I like most, but I think I'm digging the jubilee.
