Urban Jürgensen reference 3 yellow gold N°015-----> "Reference 3 Model" in the official UJS catalogue

 Dear watch aficionado.

A pretty awesome fact about this Urban Jürgensen reference 3 in yellow gold N°015 is, that it was used as the official "reference 3 Model" in the UJS catalogue as you can see on the following photos.




In the 1990s, when the reference 3 was presented, Urban Jürgensen was guided by Peter Baumberger and together with Derek Pratt they developed their collections. Derek Pratt was as well the one who developed the up/down mechanism on the reference 3, which took almost 2 years of research, different technical drawings and three dozens of additional parts to finally fit into the ultra thin (2.4mm) Frédérique Piguet base movement. The more, the whole modification for the perpetual calendar indication was as well developed and produced in-house at the atelier of Urban Jürgensen!

To finish the guilloché dial, it takes more than 700 operations and 2 days of work. The moon display requires over 20 operations to produce the blued steel background with inserted gold moon discs and stars that are punched in one by one. The effort required to produce the elegantly curved springs and levers of the perpetual calendar mechanism is partially unlimited. Each steel surface is carefully grained and the edges angled and polished to perfection. The tear drop lugs are individually forged and then soldered by hand to the case. 

The level of finissage on the Urban Jürgensen reference 3 timepieces is at the very highest standards of watchmaking.

Urban Jürgensen reference 2 yellow gold for sale -----> at Bonhams (Rasmussen) on September 19th

 Dear watch aficionado.

There will be an Urban Jürgensen reference 2 in yellow gold coming up for sale at Bonhams (Rasmussen), Lot 423, on September 19th.

The watch comes with its box and blank certificate. The watch itself seems to have spent some time on the wrist and undergone at least one service (as one can see by the mark inside caseback), but this is certainly an example that you can easily put on your wrist without being scared to put another scratch into it. The more it comes at a very low estimate of 16 000€ - 20 000€ and maybe you will not get another chance to get a UJS ref2 at such a low price level.

Here are some additional photos and a video of this example, which Frederik from Rasmussen did send to me... thanks for that.

Hope you like it.

Kind regards.
