Ultimate refinement BASELWORLD 2016: At first glance, a sober watch by Urban Jürgensen

Urban Jürgensen is introducing a new model, Reference 1741 Platinum with perpetual calendar, leap year indicator and moon phases. This timepieces showcases an almost forgotten traditional technique called grenage admirably revived by the brand.

It is hand-crafted, delicate and time-consuming, but the final result justifies the difficulties in creating such intricate dial finishing. The hand-made grenage dial is fitted with the white gold applied Arabic numerals. The moon disc involves more than 20 different operations required to create a unique miniature marvel of classic workmanship such as is rarely found in timepieces nowadays. The reference 1741 caliber is based on the P4 in-house movement. The elegant case profile featuring convex and concave curves consists of 3 main parts: the middle fitted with individually soldered teardrop lugs; the top bezel featuring a domed sapphire crystal, and the screw-in back equipped with flat sapphire crystal.
