In the field of contemporary high horology, it takes a lot for a young brand to stand out and distinguish itself. Yet for watchmaking veteran Benjamin Chee, his guiding philosophy has been elegantly simple: “I consider myself a perfectionist and cannot abide anything second-rate in my creations. Therefore, the only logical choice was to search out and partner with the very best suppliers in the industry, and to push them even further beyond their limits.”
Having previously founded Maison Celadon and Atelier Millésime, Benjamin Chee is now preparing to launch his most ambitious endeavor yet, his flagship brand Benjamin Chee Haute Horlogerie (BCHH), with a clear mission to create the finest artistic watches in the world. Precious stone and high craftsmanship dials will be combined with the very best available high horology movements, and embodied in svelte, elegant hand-finished cases.

The Type 7G started life as a 1978 SR500 Yamaha, the big single has been featured as our Type 7 series builds for a number of times now, it’s our most popular bike that clients always keep coming back to, the simplicity of the build really captures the imagination and allows our clients to implement their colours so well.
