Urwerk Unveils UR-103T Mexican Fireleg Watch
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 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.  read more


Urwerk UR-110 Torpedo Watch - Orbiting Satellite Complication
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.

Urwerk UR-103 Phoenix Watch - Incredible Resistance
Urwerk has proudly released its new one-of-a-kind timepiece - the UR-103 Phoenix watch to be officially unveiled at Only Watch 2011. This charity auction, aimed at assisting the research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, will be held in Monaco on September, 22.

Inspired by the Phoenix, rising from the flames, the new Urwerk watch is proposed in a polished white gold case - 50mm x 36mm x 13.5mm. It is hand-decorated by the master engraver Jean-Vincent Huguenin. The case is submersible down to 3 atm.

The front of the model is protected by a sapphire crystal with glare-proofed coating. The back-side, meanwhile, is rendered in titanium and coated with PECVD (Plasma-Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition) treatment.

A symbol of incredible resistance, the novelty offers a wandering hour indication on a four-arm carousel. The latter is sand-blasted and satin-finished. The time is shown by the orbiting hour satellites as they pass the arc of the minutes. The hours and minutes scales are inlaid with luminous compound. The display is controlled by a two-position winding crown.

Urwerk Unveils UR-202S Watch
In 2011, Urwerk presents a new version of its UR-202, also famous as "The Hammerhead". Now, the bold time machine demonstrates a radical full metal body on a metal bracelet. The UR-202S was born due to the brand’s close collaboration with the high-end bracelet producer, Maspoli.

Maspoli, having cooperated with the field of haute horlogerie since 1951, worked hard to come up with the Rolls Royce of bracelets. All the components, and even the tools for bracelet manufacturing, were manufactured independently by Maspoli. The bracelet creation takes 11 separate steps to reach the top level of refinement.

The UR-202S stands out among other members of the collection due to the signature three-dimensional vertical lines on the dial. Therefore, "S" in the name of the watch stands for "Stripe".

The First High-End Mechanical Watch with Artificial Intelligence
For Urwerk, a precision timepiece should have at its base a movement that is accurate, reliable and long lasting. Such a movement should meet specific criteria including accuracy in 5 positions between -4 seconds and +6 seconds over 24 hours. However, while it is one thing to regulate an accurate watch in the controlled world of a workshop, performance in the sometimes-extreme real world, i.e. on the wrist, can be very different. Changes in position and temperature, and shocks, can all adversely affect isochronism (timing regularity) of a wristwatch. The challenge with EMC was in developing a mechanical watch that can be regulated by its owner to obtain the finest chronometric performance.

EMC is the first precision mechanical watch that enables timing to be both easily monitored and easily adjusted by its owner.

With EMC, not only can the wearer obtain the precise timing rate on demand, they can then use that information to accurately adjust the timing of their watch to suit their own personal rhythm. Electro Mechanical Control (EMC) is the world's first precision mechanical watch in which the timing can be monitored and adjusted by the user to suit their lifestyle EMC is fully interactive.

EMC marks the dawn of a new era, that of an interactive smart mechanical watch allowing the owner to gauge the precision of their timepiece's chronometric performance and fine-tune it to better suit their daily rhythm and pace of life.  read more


Welcome Urwerk UR-110 ZrN Torpedo Champagne Supernova Watch
Urwerk never ceases to delight its faithful admirers. With its new UR-110 ZrN Torpedo Champagne Supernova watch, the timepiece manufacture continues its streak of excellence.

The company’s brainchild is created in the tradition of indicating time by means of orbiting satellite complications on planetary gears. They feature hour and minute modules, which evoke torpedoes.

The new Urwerk watch has the time displayed on its right side. The satellites follow a vertical line, marked with a graduation from 0 to 60, in a downward motion. This very structure enables the user to view the time without pulling back his cuff or sleeve. The watch face also offers running seconds, a day/night display and an oil-change indicator.

Urwerk UR-1001 Zeit Device Watch - Constellation of Complications
Extremely complicated, the new Urwerk UR-1001 Zeit Device watch is a milestone in the horological history of the 21st century.

Offered in a limited edition of 8 pieces, the new Urwerk watch is rendered in AlTiN steel with titanium elements. AlTiN, that is Aluminium Titanium Nitride, is an industrial surface coating, originally created to reduce the wear of machine cutting tools. With its increased oxidation resistance and hardness as well as semi-matte black color, this material happens to be an ideal high-tech treatment for the model in question.

The measurements of the case are 106mm x 62mm x 23mm. It is submersible to 3 ATM. Both front and back sides of the timepiece are fitted with sapphire crystals with anti-reflective coating.

The new Urwerk watch is worn on a chain, composed of hand-made, heat-blackened steel links. It terminates in the brand’s bespoke clasp with carbineer closure.
