Urban Jürgensen is known for creating the absolute most refined dress watches . In any case, only a couple weeks prior, the autonomous Swiss/Danish watchmaker entered the luxury sports watch class with the modern Jürgensen One collection . The model stands apart with a unique steel case with bends and fitted with an unmistakable arm band with oval-molded interlinks. Among the four references introduced, we accepted the open door at Baselworld to go active with the Jürgensen One GMT, a smooth and exceptionally utilitarian double time watch.
Capturing what individuals need in a luxury sports watch is no little test – it should be powerful, water-safe, comfortable and viable, the entirety of this in an exquisite way. So, an exquisite yet lively watch you can wear each day. In this regard, the expansion of a subsequent time region is a valuable capacity when travelling.
The Urban Jürgensen reference 5541 is the first present day double time watch of the brand. It depends on the focal hands for the nearby time and a sub-dial set apart with 24 hours for the home time. Working the double time work is clear and commonsense – which isn’t generally the situation with GMT watches.
The new development highlights nearby bouncing hours, offering ideal adaptability for explorers. The focal neighborhood hour hand can be set freely from the home reference time. Two pushers advance the hand in one-hour increases, in the two bearings. These are positioned so they can be handily actuated while the watch is on the wrist. As you would expect, the pusher at 10 o’clock progresses the hand while the pusher at 8 o’clock moves it in reverse. When arriving in another time region, there is no compelling reason to pull out the crown, essentially change the neighborhood time by squeezing the pushers – then, the sub-dial will in any case show the home time.
Manufactured as one piece, the eminently created dial is guilloché (focus) and grené (outskirts). It highlights facetted twirly doo style hour markers with radiant material, guaranteeing extraordinary neatness in any circumstance. On the home time auxiliary presentation, the 24 featured in red is a quite reasonable touch, permitting to recognize initially that this is a 24-hour second time sign. The delightful openworked hands highlight hand-rivetted focus standards. The moment hand and the thin second hands are marginally bowed at their extremity.
With the dispatch of the Jürgensen One collection, Urban Jurgensen built up a programmed form of its restrictive P4 development and the GMT instrument for this model. Estimating 32mm in measurement, the programmed P5 is entirely adjusted to the element of the case. It conveys a vigorous 72-hour power save with twin barrels. Beating at 3Hz, its enormous variable inactivity balance wheel is gotten under a cross-over extension to give ideal security. The stop seconds instrument takes into consideration exact adjustment.
As with the case, wristband and dial, the completing of the development is first class, with chamfered spans, Geneva stripes transmitting from the equilibrium haggle screws. The rotor is openworked with a UJ logo and a 22K gold external winding section.
On the wrist, the Jurgensen One GMT wears comfortably and it doesn’t feel as thick as its 13.8mm may recommend. The 41mm case and the wristband offer extraordinary wrist presence. This steel case offers 120m water-obstruction. Like the case, the particular arm band is fashioned out of clinical evaluation steel. Its unique and modern calculation consolidates ogival-molded focus joins. The manner in which the arm band is explained, combining an extraordinary harmony among inflexibility and adaptability, is just about as amazing as fascinating. End connections of various length are accessible, permitting the arm band to be changed consummately to the wrist. Last, the butterfly collapsing catch includes a twofold press framework to forestall incidental openings.
The Jürgensen One GMT (ref. 5541) truly stands apart from the other double time watches available. Like all Urban Jürgensen watches, it is deliberately thought-out and sublimely created. I can altogether recommend that you go involved with it, if just barely to give it a shot the wrist. Retail cost is CHF 33,500 and it will be accessible as of May 2019.
