Today you can win "The Jürgensen Dynasty: Four centuries of watchmaking in two countries" from Urban Jürgensen

Today Urban Jürgensen is offering you "The Jürgensen Dynasty: Four centuries of watchmaking in two countries" book.

The Jürgensen Dynasty represents four generations of extraordinary watchmakers working in two countries: Denmark and Switzerland. Urban Jürgensen (1776-1830) is perhaps the most renowned member of the family. He was among the most innovative personalities of the Danish Golden Age and internationally one of the most prominent watchmakers of his time. His contributions to the development of horology were significant and he was one of the first watchmakers and inventors to be recognised by the scientific establishment with his innovations in technology and science earning him a place in the Royal Danish Academy of science. In this manner, the book presents a broader cultural aspect of Danish history than the title at first suggests. It is a document of the art of watchmaking, as it is still exercised by the continuing production of Urban Jürgensen and Sonner timepieces today.

This competition is open to all. All you need to do is answer one question correctly... and hope that luck is on your side. All entrants who have selected the correct answer will be entered into the draw to choose the winner of the "The Jürgensen Dynasty" book.
