BCHH was founded by Benjamin Chee HH in 2019 as his flagship brand and the foremost of his passion projects, encapsulating the ultimate expression of his vision of contemporary haute horlogerie.
With the unswerving ambition to create watches of manifest excellence, Benjamin sought out the finest artisans in their respective fields worldwide to help bring his vision to fruition. The greatest master artisans in watchmaking, movement design, finissage, enamelling, silk embroidery, guillochage, precious stone cutting, and case finishing, among other artistic areas, have been united in one august cause - to create the finest watches in the world.
The handcrafted watches of BCHH are heirloom artworks of horology, exemplifying great rarity and exclusivity, meticulous attention to detail, exquisitely refined design and incomparable quality. They represent centuries of artisan tradition in a multiplicity of artistic endeavours and, in some references, world-firsts in watchmaking innovation.
PEDIGREE OF EXCELLENCE
All BCHH watches are handcrafted, assembled, regulated and tested in the atelier of Svend Andersen, co-founder of the prestigious Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants (AHCI) and undoubtedly one of the greatest living watchmakers of our time, in Geneva, Switzerland. Known as the watchmaker of the impossible, Svend is now in his 41st year as an independent watchmaker, after nine years spent in the grand complications atelier of Patek Philippe.
Aftersales service is also handled at this workshop.
Our movements are built for us bespoke to our specifications by Svend and finished to the highest degree wherever possible. We also have a number of collaborative projects in production with eight other AHCI watchmakers in total, that will be released over the next two years.
Our cases and crowns are made by Voutilainen & Cattin (excluding the Celestial Voyager, which is handcrafted internally by Svend Andersen), who is also responsible for the plating of our upcoming proprietary handwound movement.
Our dials and hands are created by Comblémine (excluding the Celestial Voyager, which is handcrafted internally by Svend Andersen), also owned by AHCI master watchmaker Kari Voutilainen.
Our enamel dials are handcrafted by a tiny atelier of the highest level in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
Most of our watches feature superior finishing and proprietary complications exclusively designed and constructed for us.
Our hand-stitched leather straps and handcrafted wooden presentation boxes are individually created bespoke by artisans in both Switzerland and Singapore.
