i would imagine the "Patel special" is quite genuine as there is no way thats a repainted dial, but the minute hand could do with some lume
it would be interesting toknow who made the JW benson......ever had the back off ?

The Seiko came with the lume missing (late night alcohol induced Evilbaying Rolling Eyes ) but runs well (+1 min a day). Dial, case back and movement match up.

The JWB has a FHF905 movement. Don't know anything else about it.

The History of J. W. Benson Ltd

J.W. Benson Ltd was a highly regarded London watch/clockmakers and gold/silversmiths who traded between 1847 and 1973.

The Benson family had been watchmakers since 1749. A company, trading as S.S. & J.W. Benson, was founded in 1847 by James William Benson (born in 1826 in Reading) and his older brother Samuel Suckley Benson (born in 1822 in London). The partnership was dissolved on 27th January 1855 and James William continued the business under the name, ‘J. W. Benson’. James William Benson died on 7th October 1878, aged 52, and his sons James, Alfred and Arthur took over the running of the business.

Throughout its history, J.W. Benson Ltd was official watchmaker to the Admiralty & the War Department and also held a number of royal warrants, being watchmakers to Queen Victoria, the Prince of Wales, the Tsar of Russia and several other royal families.

The company's premises were: Cornhill (1847-64), Ludgate Hill (1854-1937), Old Bond Street (1872-3), Royal Exchange (1892-1937) and their original workshop was at 4-5 Horseshoe Court (at the rear of their Ludgate Hill premises). In 1892 it became a limited company and moved to their new 'steam' factory at 38 Belle Sauvage Yard.

During W.W.I. the factory was bombed, destroying thousands of timepieces and from this point on the company no longer manufactured its own watches, but still continued as a retailer. The timepieces bearing the company name used high quality Swiss movements supplied by manufacturers such as, Vertex (Revue), Cyma/Tavannes, Longines and the by the English maker, S. Smith & Sons.

J. W. Benson Ltd continued until 1973 at which time the name was sold to the Royal jewellers, Garrards.
