    Jaeger & Benzinger

    Does anyone know anything about this new brand? Saw a few at the WatchBuys road show this weekend, and they were gorgeous. Some pics from their site:

    Re: Jaeger & Benzinger

    Benzinger's reputation is very well known.

    I think almost everything about these offerings are great, even the price. The only exception would be the goofy amount of the 5 and 7 numerals they tried to leave on the dial. They did away with even trying to place anything there on the Roman version. Wish that thinking carried over to the Arabic dial. Not even going to mention the odd strap choices since those are easy enough to change out.

    Benzinger's reputation as an artisan is well established. This seems to be the more affordable line of his offerings...

    Pricing seems to be more or less in-line with Dornbluth, Hentschel, etc. Another high-quality option, and they offer a beautiful chronograph as well. As others have stated, exciting entry point to the work of Benzinger.
