Incoming Urban Jürgensen BIG8

Today for the first time seated on my wrist is the wonderful Urban Jürgensen BIG8 in stainless steel. I'm a happy man right now.

Very nice watch congrats. You posted this incoming in the wrong subforum I am sure you would have gotten a ton more responses if you start this thread in "other watches"

It's actually the other way around. Voutilainen's watches are clearly like Urban Jürgensen's.

Voutilainen worked in Urban many years back and took many of the designs such as the teardrop lugs, the hands, etc. and used them in his independent work.

Cool watch. I’ve been eyeing these from afar.
