Where do you buy the best Davosa watches?

Posted on 18 September 2019 at 2:35 PM

More than 200 years ago, the profession of watchmaker played an important role for farmers in the hills of the Jura between Geneva and Basel. To gain more income and at the same time survive the long winter months, many farmers in this area learned this profession. For the Hasler family, this craft has become a thriving business. Abel Frederique Hasler started in 1981 with the production of a limited edition of handmade silver watch cases. He knows how to pass on his passion for the profession of watchmaker to his sons, including Paul Hasler. He initially started a one-man business and later entered into a partnership with his brother David Hasler. This was the foundation for a thriving company that continued to evolve and built its name within the watch shop.

Davosa Ternos GMT watch

In 1987, the Hasler company began producing a limited edition of Davosa watches. During this time the demand for mechanical watches has increased again and Davosa is a great success. The brand is therefore permanently included in Hasler's range. Davosa is seen for the first time at the major watch fair in Basel in 1998.

Davosa is known today as a niche brand for enthusiasts. The German watch brand offers both automatic and mechanical and quartz watches with Swiss timepieces of very good quality. Exclusive use is made of timepieces from ETA and Valjoux, which are among the best in the world. The Davosa watch collection consists of all kinds of collections and designs. The appearance of the various watches within the collection can be called very diverse, which appeals to a broad target group. From a beautiful stainless steel strap to a vintage leather strap, from a classic to a modern or tough look, you can go to Davosa for all this.

Various Davosa watches in the collection offer nice extras such as a ceramic bezel, helium escape valve or SuperLuminova that glows in the dark. In addition to the high quality and diversity, Davosa is also very affordable. BensonTrade supplies the Davosa watches in a luxury official box, with a two-year warranty and manual.

The watch holder is adjustable so that it is suitable for every type of watch. The glass door offers a perfect view of the revolving watches and is also lockable by a key. On the inside you will find two touch screens to adjust each rotor individually and a drawer in which extra watches or other jewelry can be stored.

Iron Annie watches | German quality

Posted on 12 September 2019 at 10:25 AM

Germany is known for the reliability and quality of the production of various products, including watches. Pointtec is a German family business that has made a name for itself in the production of high-quality and special watches with a story. Pointtec has various brands in its collection, including the nostalgic brands Zeppelin and Junkers. The Iron Annie brand is also produced by Pointtec. This brand is new on the market and definitely worth seeing.

Iron Annie 5902-4

Just like with Junkers and Zeppelin, there is a special history behind the German brand Iron Annie. The inspiration for the brand can be found in the legendary aircraft history. The name "Iron Annie" comes from the aircraft JU-52 with the registration number D-AQUI which has played an important role in the history of aviation. The Americans called this aircraft "Iron Annie" in admiration. Robustness, reliability and technical innovation are important features of both the aircraft and the Iron Annie watches of today.

Iron Annie offers a very wide range of both women's and men's watches in many different designs. For example, we find retro watches, pilot watches and Bauhaus models in the extensive collection. In addition to the high quality and diversity of designs, Iron Annie watches also offer an extremely good price/quality ratio. The brand is very affordable, you can order an Iron Annie watch from € 199.

Iron Annie has both quartz, mechanical and automatic watches in its range. Only quality timepieces of both Swiss and Japanese origin are used for the watches. Various series can be distinguished in the Iron Annie collection. The Bauhaus series, for example, is inspired by the Bauhaus art movement, in which minimalism plays a major role. This is also reflected in the Bauhaus watch models. Another series from Iron Annie is the "Jubliaumsmodell series", specially designed to mark the 30th anniversary of Pointtec. The models in this series are limited and therefore extra special. The appearance of these models can be called stylish and classic. The Iron Annie Amazonas series finds its inspiration in the aviation history of both cargo and passengers in South America. The appearance of these designs is best described as classic and nostalgic. Different models of Iron Annie are available with a beautiful leather strap or a Milanese stainless steel watch band.

As an official dealer of Iron Annie watches, we deliver every Iron Annie watch in a luxury watch box and with a two-year international warranty. You will of course also receive a manual with the watch. We have the entire Iron Annie watch collection in stock and ship worldwide.

Luwima watch winders | Collection 19/20

Posted on 4 September 2019 at 3:18 PM

A watch winder is an absolutely vital part of the collection of a fan of automatic watches. Each automatic watch must be worn for the required energy or be provided with the right movement in another way to generate this energy. A good quality watch winder simulates the natural wrist movement very accurately. This means that an automatic watch or even several watches will continue to run when they are not being worn. By preventing an automatic watch from standing still, you prevent inaccuracies in the time and date display and wear.

Luwima watch winder

There are various watch winder brands of different quality and origins. Many of the watch winders use a similar technique for winding watches. However, there are also a number of brands that have developed a unique proprietary system to provide automatic watches with their energy needs. The German brand Luwima is an example of a watch winder brand with its own unique vision and unique way of winding automatic watches. Completely in line with the idea that "form follows function", Luwima develops watch winders with advanced technology. This makes Luwima a very interesting brand for the true watch enthusiast. A combination of craftsmanship, innovation, very attractive use of materials and high-quality technology means that the high-end Luwima watch winders can be labeled as one of the best of their kind.

The Luwima watch winders are made in Germany. The most modern techniques are used for the development of Luwima's watch winders. The different models are made of aluminum. This material is known for its durability and robustness. In addition, aluminum is very light in weight and therefore easy to handle. With 650 rotations to the right and then 650 rotations to the left, the watch winders provide the required energy requirement perfectly and are suitable for all automatic watches.

In addition to good technology and quality, the design is important as well. Luwima watch winders have a luxurious and stylish appearance and with their unique design are a modern eye-catcher in your interior. In our collection are different series of Luwima watch winders available, such as the Business Black and Silver series and the Premium Chrome series.

Epos watches | Swiss perfection

Posted on 31 August 2019 at 7:50 AM

We offer many watch brands in our webshop. Swiss, German, Japanese or even from the Netherlands.

In this article we write about Epos, a Swiss watch brand with a beautiful history that today still produces beautiful automatic watches with the Swiss made label. Quality and originality guaranteed!

The Swiss watch brand Epos has been around since 1925 and has built up a rich history and name. The brand started its adventure under the name of James Aubert SA and was founded in the Vallée de joux, which is also known as "the world of mechanical watches". James Aubert was a very skilled watch technician. He devoted a great deal of time and attention to the development of new techniques in the field of watches and has thus brought the company to a higher level, in particular in the area of ??so-called "minute repeaters" and chronographs. His son, to whom Aubert later transferred the company, is also responsible for various innovations with regard to watch technology.

Epos 34381319630 watch

When in the eighties the popularity of automatic watches drastically decreased due to the rise of the quartz watch, there are few brands that still want to produce them. An exception to this is specialist technician Peter Hoofer, who founded EPOS SA in 1983 together with his wife. In close collaboration with Jean Fillon, they developed fantastic collections of automatic watches. In 2002 the company was taken over by members of the Chonge-Foster family, who continued the company and developed it into the exceptional collections of today.

Epos has a beautiful collection of both men's and women's watches and even modern pocket watches. The quality of the Swiss made watches is very high. The designs are traditional, robust and classically designed with modern technology. With this, Epos has captured its slogan in its products. This is therefore very justified: "the artistry of watchmaking", because the hand of a skilled watch technician is one of a craftsman and an artist. In addition, Epos is very affordable compared to well-known brands.

The watches from Epos feature Swiss automatic movements from ETA and Sellita, which are known for their reliability and reliability. The movements are nicely finished with Cotes de Geneve and blue screws, which clearly shows the eye for detail. Each Epos watch is made by hand, using high-quality materials such as sapphire glass. Epos watches are available with both a beautiful leather watch strap and a stylish stainless steel strap. The Epos watch collection includes various series, including the Epos Emotion series. The watches in this series have a classic and modest design. The Epos original series is characterized by a more retro style. But Epos also offers plenty of options for the more modern taste.

What is an automatic watch?

Posted on 23 August 2019 at 9:09 AM

For the watch lover who is fascinated by the operation of the authentic clock and the technology behind a watch, an automatic watch is often the ultimate choice. In contrast to a quartz watch, an automatic watch does not work on a battery, but on movement. The specific movement of the wrist ensures that the watch is supplied with the energy required to keep running. Replacing a battery is therefore not necessary with an automatic watch. This type of movement is very effective and is often used in more expensive watches. The automatic watch is paramount for many Swiss watch brands.

Because an automatic watch does not require a battery, you are basically assured of a working watch when it is moving enough. Nevertheless, the necessary precautions are also required for an automatic watch. As said, when you wear the watch, it is supplied with energy by the wrist movement. If you do not wear it, it is necessary to provide the watch with this movement in a different way. This is possible through the use of a watch winder. A watch winder mimics the movement of the wrist, so that your watch will continue to run even when you are not wearing it and will also remain protected against external influences.

Fortis Dornier watch

A high-quality automatic watch is made by hand from a professional, using high-quality materials. This includes stainless steel, sapphire glass, fine leather, but also gold and carbon. Examples of brands with these types of watches are Tag Heuer, Laco and Fortis. Various watch brands also have models in the collection that offer a view of the movement (calibre) through a see-through bottom, such as Iron Annie, Epos and Junkers. This see-through bottom offers the possibility to view a piece of the special technology behind the operation of the watch. Certainly for the true enthusiast of added value in an automatic watch.

BensonTrade offers a wide collection of high-quality automatic watches from various renowned brands. Of course with a minimum of 2 years warranty, packed in original watch box and manual. We ship worldwide via PostNL, DPD or Fedex.

Swiss made watch winders | 100% quality

Posted on 21 August 2019 at 8:41 AM

In the field of watch winders, we have a wide range of different brands, quality, design and ways of winding in our webshop. A good watch winder provides an automatic watch (or several automatic watches at the same time) with the required energy and thus ensures that the watch keeps running, even if it is not worn. This makes the watch always ready in terms of time, date and other functions and you do not have to burden the crown by always pulling it out. After all, the crown is one of the weakest parts of a watch and you don't want to pull it out too much. In addition, the right watch winder offers protection against damage, but also against wear. By preventing the watch from standing still, it also prevents small inaccuracies in time and date display. This makes this an absolutely indispensable accessory for the owner of an automatic watch or a collection thereof.
