Among the numerous strong and futuristic manifestations of free watchmaker Urwerk , on the off chance that I needed to pick the one watch that best addresses what the brand depend on, it would be the UR-210. Extraordinary in plan, science fiction roused, showing the time such that no other watchmaker does, enormous and provocative… It is the substance of the brand. In any case, everything comes to an end and it’s time for this cutting edge symbol to bow out. What’s more, for this, we celebrate with the Urwerk UR-210 Final Edition.
The UR-210 is, indeed, quite possibly the most symbolic watches created by Urwerk. It gathers everything the brand represents in a solitary piece of horology. Whether we talk about the plan, the presentation, the specialized arrangements, the remarkable selectors on the back, the turbines, the three-dimensional shape… I can recall whenever we got the opportunity to have the full-steel UR-210 in the office for a more extended period to survey this model. It was truly an experience… Yet, nothing keeps going forever and it is the ideal opportunity for Urwerk’s signature model to leave the stage, which will be compensated with a final edition of seven pieces dressed in dark and red attire.
What’s so unique about the Urwerk UR-210 is its presentation, which combines the brand’s hour satellites with an enormous retrograde moment hand that shows its sign on an angled track. This framework wasn’t something simple to create, clarifies Felix Baumgartner: “The first tests were epic. The framework was so phenomenal, and the power delivered so solid, that it overwhelmed the mechanics. (…) To value the complexity of this development in full, you should not just notice the moment hand fly back from 60 to 0 however hear it out as well. It’s the sharp “clack” it makes that flags the start of each new hour.”
The front side isn’t the solitary component to get some extraordinary treats as the back likewise features remarkable gadgets. The UR-210 featured a completely new kind of programmed winding productivity sign that has been conceded a patent. You are in reality ready to choose how solid the winding is – stop, diminished, full – contingent upon your degree of action. It is connected to a dial-side pointer; the more you move, the more your watch shows appreciation by demonstrating green. This winding proficiency gadget works related to turbines situated on the rear of the watch. On account of this turbine guideline programmed twisting framework, there is no danger any more of overwinding.
All of these features have been grown inside and are manufactured in-house because of a restrictive module on top of a GP programmed development, with 39-hour power hold and 4Hz recurrence. Its job is basically to give energy to the presentation module and to ensure the accuracy of the watch.
Back to the Urwerk UR-210 Final Edition, in a restricted run of seven pieces. This adaptation features a case in steel and titanium with a matte dark DLC covering. It is worn on a dark croc tie with a pin clasp coordinating the case. Diverging from the dull case, the “dial” shows intense red accents all over – hand, tracks, numerals on the satellites. This final edition will be estimated at CHF 137,000. More subtleties at www.urwerk.com .
