Jules Jürgensen is the oldest brand name in horology in continuous existence. 

The company was founded by Jürgen Jürgensen in 1740 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.
