URWERK

UR-105 CT


URWERK, the brainchild of Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner has finally come to its own. Twenty years in the industry and the brand has created a niche that clearly distinguishes it apart. With the UR-105 CT Streamliner, the brand once again reasserts its unique position in the horological world and takes us on a thrilling ride! The watch captures the essence of New York, a vibrant cosmopolis. The unique shape of the watch- that is, the octagon with deep grooves along its length is the very first conspicuous feature that strikes you. The geometric angularity and symmetry alludes to a clear Art Deco inspiration. The mechanism is interesting as well. You have to slide the catch on the top of the case to reveal the mechanism of the UR-105 CT. It’s a new wandering hour indication based on an openwork carousel, which carries the four satellites, each bearing three numerals for the hours. The hours successively sweep past the minutes scale for an analogue and digital display of the time. Another interesting dial-display are the digital seconds. These indicate tens of seconds. The mechanism was made using a photolithographic process, with each marker openworked to make it as light as possible. It thus weighs less than a tenth of a gram. The UR-105 CT Streamliner indeed welcomes you to a different New York…the one that lives in the hearts and minds of Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei!
