The renowned watchmaking house Urwerk is marking the 7th anniversary of its 103 collection. This is a kind of a farewell celebration, since the brand is about to stop the production of the collection at the end of the year.
According to Martin Frei, this extraordinary Urwerk line is a successful combination of refined technology and supreme elegance. This signature assemblage has reached a pinnacle in its development and, therefore, it deserves a worthy end.
Reinterpreted in a modern way, the brand’s famous Tarantula watch has been bestowed with the evocative name of Mexican Fireleg. The UR-103T watch strikes the eye with its charismatic design. The watch has been issued as a limited series of 60 pieces, while the release of the Shining T interpretation, encouraged by the world of Manga, has been restricted to just 33 items.
The new Urwerk UR-103T Mexican Fireleg watch relies on a manually-wound 3.04 calibre movement, which comprises a black ARCAP P40 triple plate. The mechanism operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a 36-hour power reserve. It brings to life a set of useful functions, displayed both on the front and back sides of the timepiece.
The front side indicates hours and minutes. The back side, meanwhile, features a control panel with the power reserve display, a 15-minute and seconds setting dial, as well as an hour adjustment screw.
The Mexican Fireleg is proposed with a case, rendered in AITiN-treated steel or 18K gold, graced with the same finish. It features the dimensions of 50mm x 36mm x 13.5mm. The control panel on the back side is sculptured in grade 5 titanium. The case is outfitted with a crown, positioned at 12 o’clock.
The intriguing dial of the new Urwerk watch exhibits hour displays on satellites, governed by Geneva crosses. It is also equipped with hour and minute markers, treated with orange Superluminova compound for the dial to acquire excellent legibility.
The new Urwerk UR-103T Mexican Fireleg watch is secured to the wearer’s wrist on a black alligator leather strap.
