Movement Hands-On Series Episode 2

A Movement Conceived And Made Entirely By The Same Independent Watchmaker


Welcome to the second installment in our Movement Hands-On series, an irregular series of articles where we scrutinize and analyze unique and interesting calibers. In part one, we took a close look at the highly unusual movement of the MB&F HM6 Space Pirate here, and today, we continue with the work of another – although in some important ways very different – independent watchmaker.

Whereas the high-end watch industry has for long been largely based on the co-operation between specialist craftsmen – working either within the company or at external suppliers – when it comes to independents, most all of the tasks are performed in-house… and for just a handful of independent watchmakers, those tasks are performed not by dozens or even a few, but by just one craftsman. Today, we are looking at AHCI (Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants) member Hungarian independent watchmaker Aaron Becsei’s proprietary movement, found in the Bexei Dignitas watch.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
