Urwerk UR-105M

The futuristic Urwerk UR-105M watch features three oscillating satellites that display a numeral indicating the hour and minutes.

The main technical challenge of the Urwerk UR-105M Watch, is ensuring excellent isochronal performance of the satellites while minimizing friction and loss of energy.

At the heart of the UR-105M time display four forged-aluminum satellites slowly orbit. Each of these satellites is visible during their 60-minute journey along the minute scale. A circular PEEK (PolyEtherEthercetone) canopy with openings enhances the current hour.

Completing the indications, running seconds and power reserve are displayed laterally on the caseband.

“The case of UR-105M was developed as an armor. The visible screws on the bezel not only bring a distinctive esthetic to the watch, but also tack the steel armor onto its titanium body. This shield protects the mechanism (the heart of the watch) from the outside world’s aggressions.”
