A long time ago, in a distant galaxy, the ether sparked. The radio telescope found that glittering golden objects struck the earth and seemed to be trying to communicate, sending out signals in six million languages. Is it C-3PO, the protocol robot in the Star Wars legend? No, this is Urwerk’s new gold UR-100! The replica UR-100 can also carry information, but can use light, time and space to communicate in the universal language of the Milky Way. However, although C-3PO is polite and polite, it is often irritating and awkward, and UR-100 awakens six million desires through the bold and subversive watchmaking process of watches.
This new work is the fourth episode of the UR-100 Interstellar Legends, about the adventures of an atypical timing tool written, produced and directed by watchmaking studio Urwerk. UR-100 is close to the speed of light, breaking the boundaries of technology, design, instruction and function.
“Since the creation of Urwerk, science fiction has been an inexhaustible source of inspiration,” explained co-founder Martin Frei. “I have been a science fiction wizard since I was a kid. My father was an engineer and worked on incredible projects, including the Apollo lunar rover. He is my hero and made me lose his love and dream of the universe. “
First and foremost, the UR-100 is slim-the satellite gear top luxury replica watches is ultra-thin-with an angular profile. It is an elongated octagon with three notched sides. The table uses subtle asymmetry, drawing on the clues of Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon. This UR-100 is cut from a solid block made of 2N gold, and its surface is satin-treated, with the same pale luster as the “Star Wars” robot. The top of the shell is sapphire crystal bubbles, reminiscent of the shape of the first Urwerk model, and the dome houses this control center for interstellar visitors.
The UR-100’s astrophysics controls the Urwerk universe by rotating satellites showing hours and minutes. The isochronous rotation produced a miniature cosmic ballet. When hour satellites crossed 120 degrees on a bright green scale, they also displayed minutes. The bold red arrow indicates the intersection of hours and minutes, providing a unique, clear, easy-to-read and intuitive time display. Even when operating at low speeds, the automatic winding system will not be overloaded due to Windfänger’s adjustment of the oscillation quality: the planetary gear limits the rotation speed of the rotor, thereby minimizing winding and wear and maximizing reliability Sex and service life.
The last but not least point is that there are discreet time and space indications on each side of the top of the outer periphery of the dome, which is essential for interstellar navigation and unique on Earth. After each of the three red minute arrows passed the number 60, they disappeared, and then reappeared on two separate kilometers scales. The first display at 9 o’clock marks 555 kilometers of the earth traveling along the equator for 20 minutes of rotation, and the second display at 3 o’clock indicates the distance of the earth’s revolution around the sun – 35,740 kilometers for more than 20 minutes. Time and space have never been better. Einstein will be proud!
Star Wars’ famous C-3PO protocol robot is enthusiastic about complying with rules and conventions, while UR-100 «C-3PO» is enthusiastic about violating rules and conventions. Since the original C-3PO was reconstructed from the scrap metal pile on the planet Tatu, the UR-100 was carefully assembled from high-precision components in Geneva. Just as cute golden robots have consolidated their positions in the collective imagination of science fiction enthusiasts, Urwerk’s golden UR-100 has created its own niche market in the hearts of scientific fake watch enthusiasts.
The first UR-100 gold medal “Fight C-19” to be auctioned: against the watchmaking industry Covid-19
“The Urwerk team has no doctors, nurses, cleaners, or even birthing staff. We are just craftsmen, realizing the watches we dreamed of making. Therefore, to participate in the fight against Covid-19, Urwerk will auction the first gold UR- 100 “Fight C-19” and distribute all the raised funds to the organization that fights the COVID-19 pandemic. “
Urwerk will work with the winning bidder for the first UR-100 gold “Fight C-19” to choose the organization that will fight Covid-19.
