Urwerk’s new UR-100V iron watch can tell you how far you have traveled in space
The ideal combination of form and function.
Urwerk’s latest addition to its UR-100 series not only has complex mechanical devices, but also an eye-catching form that will definitely attract the attention of watchmakers.
The UR-100 V iron rod is made of a unique case. The case is forged from steel and titanium with a diameter of 41 mm and is completely hand-made. Its angular contours are largely unadorned-minimal-indeed-and contrast with the face designed in the brand’s iconic rotating configuration. The interplay of texture and geometry leaves an impression from every angle.
Martin Frei, the chief designer and co-founder of Urwerk, said in a statement: “We adopted certain stylistic features of the first buildings and then deconstructed them.” “For example, we The steel dome of the early model is now a transparent sapphire crystal. The hard contours of the titanium and stainless steel case demonstrate its perfection. Because I always run counter to symmetry, I use different proportions to attract the eye .”
The dial itself uses Urwerk’s unique satellite style, with hour and minute markers that can indicate how far you have moved in space. After the minute hand completes a 60-minute journey, it will reappear at a 20-minute mark of 555 kilometers. If you stand on the earth’s equator, you can travel within 20 minutes. The opposite ratio tracks your travel in the space around the sun, which equals 35,740 kilometers per 20 minutes.mens replica watch
The company’s co-founder Felix Baumgartner (Felix Baumgartner) drew inspiration for geographic complexity from the gift his father gave him. The antique 1893 clock originally created by Gustave Sandoz for the 1893 World’s Fair shows a point on the equator instead of the distance traveled by time.
Although the overall design is reminiscent of some of the brand’s earliest models, its internal structure is the most advanced. The self-winding CAL UR 12.02 movement can redesign the carousel to make the hours close to the minutes and move continuously along the 60-minute scale for easy reading of the time. It contains 40 jewels, which can produce a 48-hour power reserve, allowing you to be anytime, anywhere.
