Urban Jürgensen pays tribute to its founder at Salon QP showcase

The Reference 1741 of the 1745 collection will be the focus of Urban Jürgensen’s showcase.

The piece was created in honour of founder Jules Jürgensen and takes inspiration from the past while aiming to set a benchmark for the future and create a standard of excellence for the present, says the brand.

The Reference 1741 in platinum has a perpetual calendar, leap year indicator, moon phase and central seconds. The timepiece is equipped with a Grenage dial for the first time in more than 100 years and re-introduces the almost forgotten craft.

The Grenage dial is adorned with white gold Arabic appliques. The moon disk takes more than 20 different operations to create and, the according to the brand, the result is a unique tiny wonder of classic workmanship.

The caliber is based on the Urban Jürgensen P4 in-house movement, enhanced with the QP functionality that has been augmented by introducing the leap year indication. The Ref 1741 is executed in a 41mm traditional Urban Jürgensen teardrop lug case.
