At night, but fortunate is a cube luminous.
Last year, the Urwerk UR-220‘falcon project ‘is a thinner, lighter, manual air version of the brand trademark satellite cube display.
Urwerk is now the first iteration of the flagship model, UR-220 SL Asimov. Dressed as generous flash dark super Luminova, the satellite block of UR-2202 SL has satellite block made of super-luminova resin, so each cube is overall.
The light-emitting display section explains the name of the watch, which is a reference to the night, which is the novel of ISAAC Asimov, finally experienced the permanent daylight of the night – this brings crazy and disaster. Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei, the creative duo behind Urwerk has a unique humorous brand.
It is usually matched to all black boxes, and the stylized display of yellow-green flue gas has long been a key part of Urwerk’s aesthetics, especially its satellite cube, starting from UR-201. This makes solid lightning blocks are the coherence of the UR-220, philosophy and style – they are all perfect fit for the Sci Fi-Techno style of the watch.
It is undeniable that the light-emitting cube is not a major innovation, but they have almost no watches. The UR-220 SL Asimov is only available to the visual attraction of the watches only on standard UR-220.
Despite this, if it is widely deployed in the model, the new novelty of the flirt is wear. But now, UR-220 Slasimov is cool.
Carbon and smoke
The light-emitting cube is a key distinguishing feature of the UR-220 SL, ie “super luminova”. Although Urwerk has traditionally rely on brass cubes produced by CNC milling, new watches use cubes made of luminescent resins.
The resin contains superluminova, a non-radioactive compound mainly composed of aluminate, which absorbs light during the day, and then emitted after a few hours. Unlike ordinary displays with light-emitting numbers, cubes have engaged engraving numbers that create digital negative images in the dark.
According to Urwerk, cast in silicon molds, the resin cube is almost as difficulty as the equivalents in the ceramics. They are Swiss experts made by RC Tritec, the expert, which is a leading provider of lamps. The company has provided solid smoke to other watchmakes, but cubes in UR-220 SL may be the largest solid fixtures found in the watch.
The rest of the UR-220 SL is the same as the standard model. The housing is made of a carbon composite known as carbon CTP, and the carbon layer is visible, and a concentric pattern is generated on the surface of the shell.
Like the tradition of Urwerk, the case returns the titanium of the black coating. It contains a service indicator to keep the running time of the running time until 39 months, then it is recommended to use the service.
The manual wind speed based on Zenith Elite is usually an automatic, but has been modified to eliminate self-winding mechanisms. Because it is a handwind, the UR-220 is higher than 14.8 mm, thinner than its automatic counterpart, and UR-210 is 17.8 mm.
