Urban Jürgensen 1140 PT | Limited edition | Blue | platinum
Ref. 1140 PT - blue dial
This preowned Urban Jurgensen Limited Edition Ref. 1140L PT Blue features a 40 mm platinum, 3-piece case and Urban Jürgensen’s distinctive teardrop lugs and convex bezel. Forged separately from the case, the classic teardrop lugs are carefully heat treated, hand polished and individually soldered into place with no visible soldering line.
The hand-finished, traditionally engine-turned guilloché dial in Urban Jürgensen blue, requires up to 700 operations and two full days of hand craftsmanship to complete, and is manufactured from one piece of solid silver. This fine guilloche patterning creates a surface ‘shimmering’ effect, owing to a selection of carefully considered grain sizes and highly-complex, weaving patterns. The dial further features a circular brushed chapter ring, with Urban Jürgensen, domed solid white gold, Arabic numerals and ‘pearled’ outer-minute track.
Creating the handmade Arabic numerals is highly-delicate, with fine “bombé” shaped detailing. As a result of this process, no two dials are identical. The handmade, solid white gold ‘observatoire’ Urban Jürgensen hands are turned on a precision lathe and mirror polished, with the arms of the hands carefully riveted in place, creating a unique visual effect, reminiscent of early 18th and 19th century marine chronometers made by Urban Jürgensen. The “eye” of the hour hand is a solid gold insert, concentrically diamond polished and friction fitted.
The Urban Jürgensen ‘P4’, in-house movement is expertly finished and elaborately decorated, with tapering lines towards the escapement wheel in Côtes de Genève patterning. This manually-wound movement is adjusted to heat, cold, isochronism and 5 positions, with 23 working jewels. It features a stop-seconds function, allowing the movement to be stopped and synchronized to a time signal with absolute precision. The ‘Swiss Lever’ escapement design of the P4 movement allows the balance wheel to be engaged with the mechanism only during the split-second it swings through its centre position, reducing overall friction and enabling superior timekeeping ability. The P4 movement is fairly discrete, at 5.20mm x 32mm, with two barrels and a power-reserve of 72 hours.
This limited edition, Urban Jurgensen Ref. 1140L PT Blue is delivered with solid platinum folding buckle and clasp.
