Urwerk UR-110 Torpedo Watch - Orbiting Satellite Complication

Mar 01, 2011
The horological company Urwerk gladly delivers its new extraordinary watch, named UR-110 Torpedo. It shows the time on the right side, using an orbiting satellite complication.

The complication is composed of three counter-rotating hour modules. Mounted on a planetary gear, each item comprises an hour satellite, a minute hand and a counter balance.

These modules are in permanent rotation, which counters the direction of revolution of the central carousel.

The latter ensures the stability and equilibrium of the complication. The satellites follow a 60-minute vertical line, in a downward motion.

The new Urwerk watch also provides an "Oil Change" indicator, which tells the user when it is time for a service. The Day/Night indicator keeps him aware of changing time zones.

All the functions are brought to life by a mechanical self-winding UR 9.01 movement. Embellished with 46 jewels, it beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 39-hour power reserve.

The movement is enclosed in a grade 5 titanium case. Its measurements are 47 mm x 51 mm x 16 mm. The case is offset by a 316L stainless steel bezel. The new UR-110 Torpedo watch features a two position crown with an integrated protection. The water-resistance of the model is assured down to 3 atm.

An elegant black leather strap completes the features of the new Urwerk watch.
