New Release: Urwerk UR105M

New Release: Urwerk UR105M

Urwerk is one of those super cool watchmaking houses whose watches are unique and don’t often look like watches.

One of the cornerstones of the independent watchmaking scenes, the watches are unique in the use of revolving satellites. The newest member of this collection is the UR105M, which the Deployant team got to photograph in Geneva during the SIHH 2014.

Inspired by the Middle Ages, the UR105M has elements reminiscent of the lances, shields of the era. The time display is by four satellites in orbit. Each of these are visible during their 60 minute journey across the dial, indicating the minutes.

Exploded view of the movement: Caliber UR5.01 with 38 jewels, beating at 28,800 bph and a power reserve of 42 hours.

At each elapsed hour, the satellite, rotates and continues on its orbit for another three hours before returning to the center stage where with the help of its pointer, it again shows the time as it glides across the minute markers.
