Description

The Jürgensen family, a dynasty of Danish watchmakers who spanned the 18th to 20th centuries, formed a brand that is one of the world's greatest creators of timepieces. Jürgen Jürgensen was the founder of this illustrious horological family, followed by his son, Urban Jurgensen. Urban Jürgensen worked with some of the most important of all watchmakers, including Abraham-Louis Breguet, Ferdinand Berthoud and the British chronometer maker John Arnold. He made a name for himself as a maker of precision instruments, including chronometers, regulators and thermometers. During the 1860s and 1870s, the company won several Gold Medals for their timepieces and became known for the beauty and precision of their marine chronometers, chronometers and astronomical pendulum clocks. Today, the focus of the brand is to build upon the work of the founders through the in-house design of new calibres exclusive to Urban Jürgensen & Sønner. Each timepiece is the result of the highest horological expertise, combined with the invaluable work of passionate, professional craftsmen who represent an uninterrupted production since 1773.
