Independent Swiss watch brand URWERK has expanded its UR-100V series with a new addition to the collection, the UR-100V Full Titanium Jacket: a single-colour version featuring different shades of grey, from Payne grey to lead grey.
This limited-edition UR-100V is enhanced by a custom-designed metal bracelet. This very special bracelet is composed of 32 sandblasted titanium links ensuring a perfect aesthetic result.
Under the UR-100V’s dome, in addition to URWERK’s trademark satellite configuration of the wandering hours and minutes, the UR-100V Full Titanium Jacket brings your spin through space into sharp focus. When the minutes hand has completed its 60-minute journey, it reappears on a 20-minute scale of 555 kilometres. This is the distance you travel in 20 minutes if you are standing on the equator of our rotating planet. The opposite scale tracks your journey through space around the sun: 35,740km every 20 minutes.
URWERK’s new calibre 12.02 drives the carousel carrying the wandering hours on three satellites. The carousel and the structure on top of the hours are forged from anodised aluminium then sanded and shot-blasted, while the satellite screws are each circular sanded. The satellites rest on a carousel of sanded brass plated in ruthenium.
The structure on top of the hours display is in sanded and shot-blasted aluminium. The self-winding rotor of the UR-100 is governed by a profiled airscrew known as the Windfänger.
The case of the UR-100V Full Titanium Jacket recalls the independent brand’s first models.
