Urwerk UR-100 GunMetal Watch Replica

space age fake watch has a complete metallic appearance.

UR-100 was launched last year and is a foundation of URWERK. In addition to preserving the super bold design of all the works of the brand, UR101/102 is also simplified, more compact and more focused-dating back to the early days of the brand. After creating the first black or silver version, then the Gunmetal model and the glossy gold version, the brand now launches a monochrome all-metal version. Get to know URWERK UR-100V iron.

Since its debut in the 1990s, the independent brand founded by Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner has stood out for its radical, futuristic design and original way of portraying time . Like the sun, the idea of ​​wandering time is everywhere. This stage created UR101/102 from the beginning, showing the time on the arc. Then there is the satellite time indicator, which contains many creative and complex iterative processes… satellites, cams, transport vehicles, rotating cubes, telescopic pointers and retrograde instructions. Even in the brand’s latest product UR-220 Falcon Project, complications and displays are still alive. But with UR-100, its intentions can be traced back to the foundation of the brand, and its display echoes the first watches of Frei and Baumgartner.

The new URWERK UR-100V Iron has the brand’s iconic satellite time display and orbit hour satellite. The minute hand with a red tip on the hour hand satellite will disappear after 60 minutes and will be replaced by the next hour. However, the red pen tip appeared again on another part of the dial to show the original astronomical indication: the distance traveled on the earth (10 o’clock) and the distance traveled on the earth (2 o’clock).best replica watches review

As Xavier explained in our article on the first model: “Basically, it uses the speed of the earth at the equator or the earth’s orbital speed around the sun to show the distance traveled by these different angles in approximately 20 minutes. For example, at the equator, the circumference of the earth is 40,070 kilometers, and the time of day is 24 hours, so the speed is 1,670 kilometers per hour. This allows you to travel 555.55 kilometers in approximately 20 minutes at 10 o’clock. In a similar way, the two o’clock indicator shows the distance the earth has traveled around the sun, spanning approximately 35,740 kilometers every 20 minutes. Of course, these additional “space-time” indicators will not have any in daily life (at least to me) Practical use, but it is more like a dream thing, it is very consistent with URWERK’s space-time universe.”

The back of the watch shows the movement, the self-winding movement 12.01-again slightly simpler than the movement in the UR-2xx series. The drilled full rotor is adjusted by a planetary flat turbine to minimize the impact on the rotor bearing and reduce wear. The bottom plate is the traditional URWERK function, the bottom plate is made of ARCAP, the alloy is non-ferrous and non-magnetic. The 12.01 movement has a beating speed of 28,800 vibrations per hour and its power reserve is 48 hours.

In 2020, this URWERK UR-100V Iron will become a novelty, adding new colors to this impressive watch. The relatively compact housing (at least for URWERK, dimensions 41 mm wide x 49.7 mm long x 14 mm high) combines titanium and stainless steel. It shows multiple surface finishes, all done by hand-according to the appearance, polished, frosted, frosted and shot peened surfaces. This adds a sense of architecture to this watch without losing a complete metallic style.

To complement this cold, almost bare all-metal appearance, the brand adopted dark blue, which is a new feature of URWERK. The hour numbers and minute track contrast sharply with the bright metal surface. This cool color is also used for straps made by Alcantara.
