As many high-end watch brands stick to traditional designs, collectors are bound to be bored. However, if you are the Swiss watchmaker URWERK, you have to stand out. We’ve been showcasing their avant-garde timepieces on a regular basis for quite some time now, but we are always looking forward to see what comes next. The reveal of the new UR-105 TTH shows they still stick to the formula.
If this is your first time seeing a watch from URWERK, you might be wondering about its crazy timing gadget. Those familiar with their previous versions know that they love to show off their sophisticated satellite complication. For the UR-105 TTH, this remains the strong point, but there are other aspects that make it fascinating.
In its default configuration, users can read the time through a small window at the very bottom. Reading is simple since it suffices to watch the wandering time go through a timer. To see more complications, slide the latch to open the cover. You now have a better view of the intricate sundial in action.
The UR-105 TTH comes in a tantalum case which is 39.5mm wide and 53mm long. the titanium caseback, on the other hand, appears to have a layer of black DLC. It works with the URWERK self-winding caliber UR 5.03 with a 48-hour power reserve.
Instead of your typical exhibition background, URWERK, you have two turbines associated with the rotor. There is also a winding gear lever to give owners full control over the movement of the watch. The UR-105 TTH comes with a superb Vulcarbon rubber strap with a black DLC buckle.
