Urwerk - In two-tone mode

Urwerk In two-tone mode

UR-111C Limited Edition available in a twotone version.

Sometimes it doesn’t take much to reinvent the wheel. Urwerk burst onto the watchmaking scene providing a traditional industry with edgy, futuristic watches reinterpreting the concept of telling the time. Building on this achievement, Urwerk now provides exclusive variations of their “wheel-redefining” watches, with the UR-111C now available in a twotone version, clad in black PVD and brushed steel for a sleeker profile. Initially introduced in 2018 in all stainless steel, the UR-111C offered an innovative way of reading the time. Its construction reminiscent of a driver’s watch features a cylinder on the bottom half of the watch topped by a sapphire crystal and displaying the hours on the right and the minutes in the center and on the left. The seconds can be read through an opening on the top of the watch, with a roller below it acting as the crown to set the time. Though the design of the case could be mistakenly regarded as bulky, its curvature fits quite comfortably on most wrists. The combination of steel with a black PVD finish gives the watch an even more mechanical and contemporary look. Difficult to go unnoticed with this on the wrist. But then again, why would you want to ?
