    Wow! that is beautiful. I hate to think how much it cost to have made. Can you imagine how much it would be if it had a Bergeon sticker on it? :)

    Here is a link to it;

    Think I will stick with the watchmakers bench I bought at auction for £20, it was too big for people to move which was why I got it so cheap :)

    So in sharing custom benches,…I ran across this while I was out of my mind thinking that my wife would allow me to spend a few grand on my bench. ( The bourbon was reaaaaaaallly good that day ).

    After you read about his rock n’roll acumen, you need to drift to the upper right side of the page, and read about his watchmaking expertise,..it’s humbling to say the least,..and then of course, you can peruse the benches that he has designed….I think you can have one for around 2K…..they are beautiful.

    Oh my…I just realized that this doesn’t include a base !!!!!!

    Randy,
    Who is that guy? The woodworking shop alone must have cost several million dollars.

    Wow, what a story. I looked over his biography and in the mid to late 1990s he put his heavy metal rock & roll behind him and jumped into watch repair. It said that as a young child he was exposed to watch repair through his grandfather.
