Jürgen Jürgensen was founded in 1740 in Denmark, at this time Jürgen Jürgensen went into partnership with Isaac Larpent, naming the company "Larpent & Jürgensen". In 1814 after Jürgen died his son took over the business and renamed the company Jules Jürgensen. Jules Jürgensen manufactured most of its watches in Switzerland. In 1936 the company was sold to a US-based company, but they still manufactured their watches in Switzerland until 1957. In 1974, Mort Clayman, a watch distributor in the U.S. purchased the company.

Here we have a 1970s Jules Jurgenson Day-Date with a 38mm rectangular stainless steel case with chamfered corners. Brushed and polished surfaces transition with crisp edges. The angular shape sits on your wrist like a cushion. On the right side is a signed crown that sits slightly recessed. Recessed lugs with a lug to lug of 39mm and a case thickness of 13mm gives the watch an impressive wrist presence. The crystal sits recessed in the case above a two-tone dial in grey and black. The outer minute track has large markings in grey for the minutes. Applied baton indexes with lume centres mark the hours and at 3 o'clock a day/date window. Long steel baton hands with lume infill are complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand and at 12 o'clock an applied crown, at 9 o'clock Jules Jurgenson's motif completes this stunning timepiece. On the reverse a screw-down case back with engraving and inside an Automatic AS 1916. The watch comes fitted on a 22mm bracelet with a folding clasp, the watch also comes with its original box.
It doesn't get much more unapologetically 1970s than this and for that reason I absolutely love it! Again, as a lot of you well know, I'm a 1970s fan and own multiple watches from this era and often they are my daily wearers, I would highly recommend you give this whacky and wonderful watch a chance on the wrist as it may convert you to an entirely new and fun side of collecting you may not yet have experienced!
