The specially formulated timepiece’s bracelet consists of 32 black DLC-treated, sandblasted titanium links. Their brilliant, gleaming finish provides a classy aesthetic look while high-quality craftsmanship assures a lightweight feel on the wrist.
To complement the piece, URWERK incorporated its signature satellite configuration of the wandering hours and minutes, resting atop a brass-plated ruthenium carousel. Time and distance are on a par, with the hours and minutes displayed in blue and kilometers in vibrant white. This dynamic feature gives the wearer information that most timepieces would not offer.
Along with the new black jacket, the UR-100V is elevated by a few other innovative features as well. The watch's new selfwinding Calibre 12.02 powers the carousel that carries the wandering hours on three satellites. This redesign brings the hours closer to the minutes as they simultaneously travel around the 60-minute scale, resulting in a more natural, effortless reading experience. This is made possible by the calibre’s rotor which is controlled by a profiled airscrew — the Windfänger.
Although the UR-100V is inspired by past URWERK silhouettes, many features are reconstructed in a contemporary way, with new proportions or materials. The carousel is crafted from anodized aluminum, which is then sanded and shot-blasted. Past styles displayed a steel dome, which is now reworked in transparent sapphire crystal.
The lustrous UR-100V in all-black is part of a 25-piece limited edition release via URWERK retailers.
