We are pleased to announce that once again Urban Jürgensen & Sønner has returned to Danish hands, after 30 years of Swiss ownership. On the 14th of November, a group of Danish private investors took over the company, included in this group is Mr. Søren Jenry Petersen, who has been appointed President and CEO.

For the past 35 years, Peter Baumberger with Derek Pratt and lately Dr. Helmut Crott have steered the company forward with concepts for new in-house calibers and perpetuating a refined understanding of choice in the execution of the Haute Horlogerie craft for the 21st century. The new ownership plans to build upon this foundation selectively creating watches in timeless styles exhibiting the finest of execution and attention to detail in the craftsmanship, continuing over 240 years of established traditions at the company.
