Urwerk Unveils UR103 'Hexagon' - Supremacy of Black

Aug 28, 2008
Since its foundation in 1997, the Urwerk Company has maintained the tradition of marking the birth of each new collection by creating ten exclusive timepieces clothed in black, a supreme color, attracting the light and, at the same time, swallowing all the other colors.

This year the brand is proud to introduce the new black platinum 'Hexagon'.

The initial Urwerk 'Black' limited edition watches appeared in 1999 when the company created a special version of its very first watch -the UR102. The black timepiece, dubbed 'Night Watch', entered the list of most coveted pieces among avid watch collectors. The combination of an aluminum case and platinum base of the timepiece was quite a groundbreaking concept for its time.

In 2006, Urwerk unveiled its now mythical 'Black Bird'. The watch featured combat aesthetics, having inherited its name from military aviation, and followed by the introduction of the 'Black Shark' in 2007.

The UR103 'Hexagon' is the new limited edition timekeeping creation of the brand. The timepiece stirs imagination by its powerfully designed black platinum case with the following dimensions: 50mm x 36mm x 13.5mm. The angular satellites reveal masculine lines contrasting with the soft curves characterizing the classical 103 models.

If you need to find out the time in the dark, the luminescent Superluminova marking for the hours and minutes display the time in icy-cool menthol blue.

The timepiece is equipped with a hand-wound movement - Calibre 3.03. The mechanism provides a 43-hour power reserve.

The titanium control board incorporates a power reserve indicator, time regulating dials indicating 15 minutes and seconds, as well as a precision adjustment screw.

The remarkable watch is secured to the wrist on a black alligator leather strap.
