Watch tool company Bergeon has unveiled a sneak peek of new designs set to be showcased at BaselWorld next month.
Its new ergonomic Dune bench has been launched as the company celebrates its 220th anniversary. It is the fruit of developments stemming from its R&D sector.
Bergeon said: "It places the watchmaker within his working environment while taking account of the functional and aesthetic demands inherent in his daily activity.
"A number of collaborative efforts undertaken with regard to the concept, the materials and the design have given rise to this workbench christened Dune because of its split-level tray for which a patent has been filed."
The wooden workbench is crafted in stainless steel and aluminium with electric elevation programmable in four positions. It has leatherette jointed armrests and soft-close drawers.
