ABOUT JULES JURGENSEN
Jules Jurgensen was a watchmaking company founded by Jürgen Jürgensen in 1773 in Denmark, when Jürgen Jürgensen went into partnership with Isaac Larpent, under the name "Larpent & Jürgensen".
Upon Jürgen's death in 1811, his son Urban took over the company, keeping the name. It was changed in 1814. Jules Jürgensen produced most of its watches in Switzerland. Jules Jürgensen was sold to a U.S.-based company in 1936, but watches were still produced in Switzerland until 1957, when the documentation shows the watches were made by other manufacturers and branded with the Jürgensen name.
Vintage Jules Jurgensen watches are rare timepieces of high-quality design and craftsmanship. Over the years, many of the models have become collectibles and have considerably increased in value.
The world's first quartz clock was built in 1927 by Warren Marrison and J. W. Horton at Bell Telephone Laboratories. The world's first quartz watch, however, was unveiled by Seiko as the Astron in December 1969. Since the 1980s, when the advent of solid-state digital electronics allowed them to be made compact and inexpensive, quartz timekeepers have become the world's most widely used timekeeping technology, used in most clocks and watches as well as computers and other appliances that keep time.
