Urban Jürgensen produces some of the most attractive and elaborate time-only watches on the market today. The Reference 1140L RG Brown Limited Edition released at Baselworld 2018 is further proof of that. A walnut brown dial contrasts with the finely blued hands to create a sumptuous tone. Arabic numerals made of solid rose gold are hand polished and appear as if they’re floating on the dial’s surface. A masterfully guillochéd dial, cross-hatched small seconds, and teardrop lugs (which have been individually forged and soldered, heat treated and handpolished) elevate the whole dial architecture. This limited-edition watch is the latest update to the Ref. 1140 series that has seen a variety of dial colors and case materials since its initial inception a few years ago. Last year, we saw the limited-edition Ref. 1140 make an appearance in platinum with a velvety blue dial. This year, the chocolate hue is a distinct diversion into warmer colored territory that really hammers home the level of handcraft going into each Urban Jürgensen timepiece. Inside the watch is the handdecorated Urban Jürgensen in-house P4 Caliber with Swiss Lever Escapement, a twin barrel and a 72-hour power reserve. Limited to 20 total pieces, the 40-mm timepiece comes on an alligator leather strap with a solid rose-gold folding buckle and clasp. It’s priced at CHF 29,900.
