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.
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.
Available in two versions: the Iron Knight with a titanium case and steel bezel and a Dark Knight with a titanium case and AlTiN treated steel bezel.
A seconds indicator, in a honeycomb disc is visible on the right side of the case indicating the passing of each 10 seconds.
