The London Edition
This Urban Jürgensen Big 8 ‘London Edition’, exclusively retailed through A Collected Man, is distinguished by its custom-made, racing green dial, closed date aperture and stainless-steel case. Limited to 10 pieces, we will be donating all profits from the sale to the Wellcome Trust. Amidst the global pandemic taking place, we hope to contribute positively in a small way, by supporting the Wellcome in their efforts to prevent, detect, and respond to the disease.
An Urban Jürgensen timepiece has always been an example of uncompromising craftsmanship, a tradition the company feel honour-bound to perpetuate. The Maison’s timepieces are not factory made out of some anonymous industrial building but carefully honed in a traditional atelier. The creation of an Urban Jürgensen watch is not the product of expedience, but instead the prolonged pursuit of excellence deploying the traditional highly specialised forms of craftsmanship reflecting the timeless traditions of the company.
In an exciting new development after 30 years, Urban Jürgensen is moving to refined new premises in Biel/Bienne. Built in the late 1920s and exuding the type of atmosphere that only comes from carefully renovated craft detail, the new premises offer the perfect home for a brand that is defined by the word authenticity.
The aura of restrained excellence and quiet confidence that surrounds a handcrafted, elegant Urban Jürgensen timepiece is appreciated by collectors and connoisseurs worldwide. Acutely aware, however, that time itself is the ultimate luxury, Urban Jürgensen is launching a brand-new service offering an unprecedented opportunity to purchase an Urban Jürgensen timepiece in locations currently not serviced by retailers.
Urban Jurgensen is proud to announce that our Reference 2340 is among the pre-selected watches competing in the GPHG 16th edition for the Men’s category prize and the Aiguille d’Or - the most prestigious award in watchmaking. Urban Jurgensen has previously been awarded the GPHG prize in Men’s category in 2014 with the reference 1142C detent escapement.
As Urban Jürgensen continues to develop its presence around the world through a carefully selected Retail network, we are happy to announce the welcome of two new key members of the Urban Jürgensen team, as we regroup and strengthen our Sales Operations.
