Urban Jürgensen Reference 1741 Platinum

Jürgen Jürgensen is the undisputed king and godfather of watchmaking in Denmark. In 1798 for instance he travelled to Paris to study with Abraham-Louis Breguet, in 1801 he built a remarkable bimetallic thermometer and after that he started to create very precise chronometers.
