Designed and manufactured in time-honored Swiss form, Ernst Benz watches are renowned for their durability, legibility, and stunning appearance.
While the heart of their product is rooted in standardized equipment designed for professional aviators, the 50-year-old company’s integrity and aesthetic beauty have progressively rendered them in-demand by mechanical watch aficionados and admired tastemakers everywhere.
Techniques that enhance the function and appearance of each piece are developed through creative experimentation, with an eye on the past for inspiration. While the final product occupies less space than a customized car or bespoke jacket, the rich detail and artisanal quality of an Ernst Benz timepiece proves an equally, if not more commanding presence.
Ernst Benz surpasses their slogan—“Precision instruments for timekeeping”—by creating something far more than an accurate utility. Second generation watchmaker and Ernst Benz President and Creative Director Leonid Khankin believes in breaking the mold and intentionally “disrupting the watch world” while maintaining integrity and preserving the craft’s history. It is this approach to design, paired with a thorough dedication to each customer and the care of their timepiece through the years, that sets them above.
Ernst Benz watches are sold in all eleven John Varvatos stores throughout the United States.
