URWERK’s UR-100V watch collection welcomes a new limited edition timepiece, the UR-100V “Blue Planet”.The new UR-100V watch is adorned in blue: blue for the steel case, blue for the atypical movement, blue for the orbital carousel. The blue hue of the UR-100V “Blue Planet” is deep, dense, and matte.
Almost all of the elements of the movement, including the automatic rotor regulated by its Windfänger turbine and the entire satellite hour display system, are also blue – as are the technical canvas strap and buckle. The most visible screws are in flame-blued titanium using a technique unique to the Baumgartner family. Against this uniform blue background, the fluorescent yellow and green arrowhead hand is a shooting star.
Under a large observation dome, where, upon finishing indicating the minutes in the 0-to-60 arc along the bottom of the dial, the vivid green and yellow arrowhead hand (one of three) disappears – only to reappear at 9 o’clock to track the 555.55 kilometers the earth rotates at the equator every 20 minutes. The hand then reappears again at 3 o’clock to display a kilometer counter tracking 20 minutes of the earth’s revolution around the sun (35,742 kilometers).
The UR-100V “Blue Planet” is available in a limited edition of 25 pieces.
