Urwerk has added a new watch to its UR-100 series. The new UR-100V iron rod is made of steel and titanium. It has a single color and is unmodified to show its most refined appearance-all finished by hand. There are no extreme colors, but a touch of blue and red. The shape and surface treatment together create ever-changing contrasts of light and dark on the polished, frosted, frosted and shot peened surfaces. In addition to Urwerk’s iconic satellite configuration (hovering hours and minutes), UR-100V Iron can also make your rotating space clearer. When the minute hand completes its 60-minute journey, it will reappear on the 20-minute scale at 555 kilometers. If you stand on the equator of our rotating planet, this is the distance you travel in 20 minutes. The opposite ratio tracks your travel in space around the sun: 35,740 kilometers every 20 minutes.
Under the dome of UR-100, Urwerk’s new movement 12.02 drives the carousel to transmit the roaming time on three satellites. Felix Baumgartner said:
“This new movement redesigned the merry-go-round so that the hours traveled along the minutes for 60 minutes, getting closer and closer to the minutes. The result is easier and more intuitive reading of the time.”
The turntable and the most important time structure are forged from anodized aluminum, then sandblasted and sandblasted, while the satellite screws are rounded separately. The satellite is placed on a brass wheel coated with ruthenium. The structure at the top of the hour display is frosted and sandblasted aluminum. The automatic winding rotor of UR-100 is controlled by a special-shaped screw called Windfänger.
Martin Frei, chief designer and co-founder of Urwerk, said: “The main reason for falling in love with watches is the emotional response to the dial.” “In addition to the complexity of its mechanism, we also tried to perfect this watch fake as much as possible. UR The -100V iron appears with its bare brilliance, only reflecting light on the metal to show its beauty.”
On the display of the UR-100V iron, the time and distance are the same, the hours and minutes are blue, and kilometers are bright white. Watchmaker and Urwerks co-founder Felix Baumgartner (Felix Baumgartner) revealed that he got this idea from a clock given to him by his father Geri. Gerry is a famous restorer of antique clocks.
“It was made by Gustave Sandoz at the 1893 World’s Fair. It does not show the time, but the distance traveled by a point on the equator.”
The appearance of the UR-100V iron case is nostalgic. Many owners of Urwerk watches will recall the first models of independent brands.
“We took some of the stylistic features of the first buildings and then deconstructed them,” Martin Frei explained. “For example, the steel dome of our earlier model is now transparent sapphire crystal. The hard contours of the titanium and stainless steel case demonstrate its perfection. Because I always have different requirements for symmetry, I use different Proportion is eye-catching.” He concluded.
Urwerk UR-100V iron has a limited edition, made of titanium and stainless steel. The width of the case is 41 mm, the length is 49.7 mm, and the thickness is 14 mm. This watch has a blue Alcantara strap and a titanium buckle.
