If I were building a watchmaker’s bench from scratch I would seriously consider higher back and sides, a shelf at the back for a timing machine and staking set to get them off the benchtop, a roll-top tambor cover, fore arm padding on the front, and the top would protrude out toward me about 6 inches x 12 inches.

I like the design of this top:

And the fore arm pads like this bench:

Here are some old roll-tops, but I’d like a shelf above the top to put large frequently used stuff on.
