URWERK UR-100V C52 Limited Edition (with carbon case)

Followed by the launch of the limited edition “UR-100V Full Titanium Jacket” watch, URWERK UR-100V Collection now welcomes UR-100V C52, a new version in carbon.

URWERK UR-100V C52 Limited Edition (with carbon case)

The UR-100V C52 watch features an ultra-tech case made of High Resistance CTP Carbon. An extremely resilient carbon composed of 52 layers compressed in epoxy polymer resin. The use of this unusual material allows the case of the UR-100V C52 to tip the scales at a featherweight 11 grams including titanium back.

It’s the folds of the carbon layers that give character to this new creation. The curves enhancing the bezel of the UR-100V C52, trace their way from the crown to the sides of the watch passing through the lugs. The circular case results from precision-cut 52 layers of carbon. The design extends all around the wrist thanks to the original rubber strap specifically designed for this watch.

On the UR-100V, the display of hours and minutes is via satellites. A minute hand (one of three), once past the 60-minute mark, disappears to then reappear as a kilometer counter. It illustrates the 555 kilometers we travel every 20 minutes on the surface of the Earth. 555 kilometers/hr is the average speed of rotation of the Earth at the Equator.

Opposite this indication, another displays the speed of the Earth’s revolution around the sun, i.e., 35,740 kilometers in 20 minutes. On the face of the UR-100V, hours and kilometers share the same status, the same value. The hour and minute numerals indications are illuminated in highly legible incandescent green for easy ready.

The UR-100V C52 is mounted on a strap with a folding clasp, featuring textured flexible rubber for a comfortable fit.
