The UR-110 is back on the scene, shedding its original titanium and steel case to retain the essentials: Its ARCAP mainplate and planetary satellite complication. The UR-110 has got a second wind and with it, a platinum bezel for a decidedly vintage look.

The technical complexity of the UR-110 collection is based on:-
– A central carousel providing the complication with stability and equilibrium
– Planetary gearing assuring the parallel rotation of the three hour satellites as they orbit the dial
– The three counter-rotating hour modules – each comprising an hour satellite, minute hand and counter balance – are each mounted on a planetary gear. These three modules are in constant counter-rotation to counter the direction of rotation of the central carousel.

The UR-110’s technology can be appreciated through the large panoramic sapphire crystal. As well as indicating the hours and minutes, the UR-110 also features a Control Board on the dial side with indicators for “Day/Night” and “Oil Change” – URWERK’s service interval display – as well as small seconds on a sub dial. Turning the watch over, the titanium back encloses the innovative automatic winding system regulated by dual turbines.
