Early Ikepod? No, that's the baby daddy - The Jurgentron!

Like this watch? Hope not, you'll never find another. Unless you can pry one of the only models existing from Heirloom Gallery's private collection. He bought if from me some time ago and I sure do miss it. I once searched high and low for this baby and somehow convinced the president of Jules Jurgenson himself to sell me one from his personal safe.

This 1960's Jules Jurgenson triple date moonphase chronograph with complicated Valjoux 88 movement appears to have fathered Mark Newson's Ikepod watches. DNA tests will determine, stay tuned!

It's a boy!
