Description

The Ernst Benz Chronoscope is a timepiece inspired by modern avionics. The Chronoscope was initially created in response to the demands Mr. Benz received from his fellow aviators for a reliable and easily legible chronograph. The Chronoscope has evolved since its early release but has remained true to its unique vintage styling and characteristics of the original model.

The History:

The Ernst Benz company got its start in 1960. Founded by Mr. Benz, who was an aviator and inventor, Mr. Benz began his career by producing aircraft instruments, altimeters, and timing devices, as well as the jewels for the production of high-end watches. He also founded Benz-Micro, a Hi-Fi component company known for its impressive vinyl turntable cartridges. In 1980, he created the Micro-Aircraft Chrono Gauge Instrument, and shortly after, a wristwatch version of that piece, called the Benz Micro Swiss Chronograph.

The Watch:

The Chronoscope Ref 40100 has a 44mm Brushed Stainless Steel case with a sapphire crystal, as well as an exhibition case back with a sapphire crystal. It is powered by an automatic Valjoux Calibre 7750 movement and is water resistance rated to 50 meters. The functions of the watch include hours, minutes, subsidiary seconds, day, and date. The chronograph dials feature hours, minutes, and central seconds.

The Details:

This Ernst Benz Chronoscope Ref 40100 is in good condition, with minimal wear markings on the case and lugs, as visible in the photographs. The crystal is scratch-free, as is the crystal on the case back. The strap is a brown alligator leather with stainless steel Ernst Benz buckle.
