The intricate details of this print bring to life the elegance and craftsmanship that were synonymous with timepieces during this era. The focal point of the image is a beautifully designed calender clock watch, surrounded by various other exquisite watches. From half quarter repeaters to chronograph calendars, each piece exudes sophistication and precision. It's evident that Bensons Watches prided themselves on offering a wide range of high-quality timekeeping instruments. The advertisement proudly highlights Bensons' prestigious location in London's West End, as well as their state-of-the-art steam factory located at Ludgate Hill. This suggests that not only did they have a prime retail space on Old Bond Street but also possessed cutting-edge manufacturing capabilities. As we delve deeper into the image, we are reminded of the importance placed on accuracy and complexity in watchmaking during this period. The presence of minute repeaters and complicated watches further emphasizes Bensons' commitment to providing their clientele with exceptional timepieces. Overall, this engraving serves as both an artistic representation and historical documentation of Bensons Watches' advertising efforts in 1885.
