Benno

MUNICH’S BELOVED LANDMARK

It is the best-known symbol of the Bavarian capital: the Cathedral of Our Dear Lady, known in German as the Frauenkirche. The iconic domes atop the two widely visible 323-foot towers contain ten bells, filling the city center with their sonorous peal at the top of the hour. One of these bells was dedicated to Bavaria’s and Munich’s patron-saint Benno. With this very limited collection, Leinfelder Uhren München wishes to pay homage to this beloved Bavarian monument. 

 

A pencil drawing of the Frauenkirche graces the dial, enveloped by a shapely steel case. At the heart of this new watch sits a mechanical hand-wound caliber crafted in German silver by Uhren-Werke-Dresden. With more than 95% of the work done in-house, the movement stands for utmost precision. This three-hander is truly “made in Germany”, with almost every part of the watch and the caliber conceived, designed and manufactured in Germany.
