Urban Jürgensen - Big 8

Urban Jürgensen Big 8

The Urban Jürgensen Big 8 is an enlarged version of the brand's Reference 8 model.

As the name suggests, the Big 8 is an enlarged version of the Urban Jürgensen Reference 8. Its case diameter has been increased from 37mm to 40mm, whilst keeping the same classic round design and stepped bezel. The distinctive teardrop lugs also stand out, since they are individually forged, heat treated and hand polished before they are invisibly soldered to the case middle.

Like all Urban Jürgensen timepieces, as much care is lavished on the dial and hands of the Big 8 as for both the movement inside and the case that surrounds it. The dial has a hand engine-turned decoration on a solid silver base and the hands are made entirely from hand, taking over a day to finish.

Inside the Big 8 beats an ultra-thin self-windiing movement that is an upgraded version of the Frédéric Piguet FP1160 calibre, the small seconds version of the renowned Frédéric Piguet 1150. In this case it is rated at 4Hz and offers a 48 hour power reserve thanks to two mainspring barrels operating in series. Its winding rotor is in 21-carat gold and hears a hand engine-turned motif.

The Urban Jürgensen Big 8 is available in platinum, 18-carat yellow gold, 18-carat white gold or stainless steel and comes with a large scale alligator leather strap.
