BENCH

A GENERAL TERM FOR A SOLID WORKBENCH USED BY VARIOUS PROFESSIONS. THE WATCHMAKER’S BENCH INCLUDES DRAWERS FOR THE WATCHMAKER TO KEEP THE DIFFERENT TOOLS. THESE DRAWERS FORM A CABINET WHICH CAN BE SEPARATE FROM THE BENCH ITSELF.
EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY CABINET-MAKERS USED THEIR TALENT TO CREATE LUXURIOUS BENCHES THAT WERE A FOCAL POINT OF FAMOUS WATCHMAKERS’ SHOPS.
TODAY’S BENCHES ARE ERGONOMICALLY DESIGNED AND ADAPTED TO THE WATCHMAKER’S DIFFERENT TASKS, SUCH AS ASSEMBLY AND REPAIRS.
