This unique reference 2340 also has a moon phase indication that requires 20 different operations to produce. It is hand made from mirror polished flame-blued stainless steel and the stars are applied by hand in gold before two solid 18-carat gold mirror polished moons are added. A retrograde power reserve indication can be read around the bottom of the moon phase scale, with a separate date window at 3 o’clock and a small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. Timekeeping is provided by the Urban Jürgensen P4 movement, which operates at 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a respectable 60 hours of power reserve from two mainspring barrels. It is housed inside a 40mm three-piece case in white gold with a convex bezel and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Brice Lechevalier is the founder of GMT, the watch magazine of reference in Switzerland, founder of the Geneva Watch Tour and director of Europe’s leading watch news website, WorldTempus. Twelve major watchmakers have entrusted him with the task of designing a unique commemorative piece to mark the 16th anniversary of WorldTempus.
Urban Jürgensen is a hallowed name in watchmaking circles among those who believe in the ultimate craftsmanship of entirely hand-made watches, and has been for 240 years. The Reference 2340 in white gold is a masterpiece of harmony, which was preselected for the 2016 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. The number 16 in white gold at 12 o’clock (representing the 16th anniversary of the WorldTempus website) makes this an even more unique work of art.
