Bexei is a Hungarian luxury watch brand founded by Aaron Becsei.
Aaron Becsei was born in Budapest in 1979 and is the 3rd generation of a watchmaking dynasty. He grew up surrounded by watches. After secondary school he graduated from the Watchmakers program. In order to develop himself as a watchmaker and to get the necessary practical experience he started to work on watch repairs with his father.
To have a deeper engineering knowledge he went to the School of Technical Sciences of Budapest in the faculty of CAD/CAM design. Aaron Becsei’s graduation thesis paper on his Tourbillon watch was honored by the Chamber of Engineering in Budapest. In 2003 he finished his first clock. This Miniature Double Pendule Zappler was fully his design and made by hand. After one and a half years of work his first Tourbillon clock was finished.
In 2005, with his Tourbillon No.1 clock, Aaron Becsei was granted admission to the AHCI as a candidate and in 2007 he showcased these two clocks: the Tourbillon No1. and the Miniature Zappler at Baselworld 2007. His timepieces show respect to traditional watchmaking and are built with the most precise methodology. The Toubillon No1. table clock has a calendar, moon phase, wind up indicator, thermometer and a world time function. This clock has duplex tourbillon escapement and a unique engraved background making it unique and spectacular.
He has also created Bexei Primus Tourbillon Watch featuring an extremely complicated and unique movement. Respecting traditional watchmaking he invented the three axis tourbillon movement without ball-bearings which is a unique solution at this size and level of complication. Presented at Baselworld 2008, this wristwatch also has an incomparable engraved dial. At Basel world 2010, Aaron Becsei presented the Bexei Dignitas watch collection.
