  • Catalogue Essay

    Since its rebirth in the 1990s under the technical supervision of Derek Pratt and Kari Voutilainen and following the different changes in ownership, Urban Jürgensen has always maintained an immediately recognizable visual language with its elegant slim stepped cases, tear drop lugs, lavish guilloché dials and elaborate hands.

    At a 40mm diameter, the Big 8 is, as its name implies, a larger version of the original Reference 8 that had a 37mm case.

    The finely decorated movement is based on the slim F. Piguet 1160 automatic caliber and features a stunning guilloché rotor.

    The sheer amount of detail and care that have gone into the creation of this piece is quite incredible and the present Ref Big 8 model offers a type of watchmaking that is rarely found within this price range and as such is a superb value proposition.
