The Jürgensen dynasty
The following three lots, 159 to 161, pay tribute to the genius and inventive spirit of the celebrated Jürgensen dynasty.
Among the world's greatest watchmakers of the 18th and 19th centuries, members of the Jürgensen family, notably Urban and Jules, worked alongside other horological geniuses such as Houriet, Breguet and Arnold, and have greatly contributed to the development of watchmaking.
Continuing the tradition of this famous house, the brand Urban Jürgensen & Sønner was revitalized in 1981 and produces today small series of sophisticated wristwatches of the best quality, much coveted treasurers amongst collectors of fine rare timepieces.
