Model UR-111C sees double.

In a design that is positively out of this world, Urwerk revamps the famous UR-111C with its own take on two-tone. Urwerk has made a name for itself in the watchmaking industry for its novel approach towards telling the time. Every Urwerk model revisits our traditional concept of reading a dial, all with an edge and futuristic aesthetic. The UR-111C now appears in a Two-Tone version clad in black PVD and brushed steel for a sleeker profile.

Quintessentially Urwerk

UR-111C Two-Tone © Urwerk

The “dial” of the UR-111C Two-Tone – if you can call it a dial, that is – offers 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 left and the minutes in the center and on the right (for more accurate reading). 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 Urwerk calls this a digital display, it is entirely mechanical and the term “digital” refers to the numbers appearing as digits. Unusual and yet entirely captivating, the UR-111C’s new look with black PVD and brushed steel looks otherworldly : a contemporary design that is quintessentially Urwerk. UR-111C Two-Tone Case : Steel with black PVD and brushed finish Dimensions : 42 x 46 x 15mm Movement : Self-winding caliber with stop seconds Dial : sapphire with anti-glare coating Functions : Jumping hours, retrograde linear minutes, digital minutes, digital seconds Strap : fabric strap
