Urwerk – UR-110 EastWood
For the last release of the UR-110 model, Urwerk’s originators Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner chose to accomplish something significantly more unique than what they typically do.
To begin with, they utilized wood for the bezel of the two models. Second, they coordinated the watches to customized tweed ties. Subsequently, the new Urwerk UR-110 EastWood genuinely stands out for its uniqueness.
Just ten bits of the EastWood will be delivered, five pieces with South African Red Ivory wood bezel and five with Indonesian Macassar ebony bezel.
As you can envision, cutting a balanced bezel of hard woods like the ones utilized for this project and afterward have it totally coordinated in the titanium development of the UR-110 was a major test.
For the ties, Urwerk asked backing to Timothy Everest, the renowned Welsh bespoke tailor. The decision went on fine fleece tweed, ideal for toughness and wearability. One of the examples utilized is the first Prince of Wales check worn by the Duke of Windsor. In opposition to prevalent thinking, this tweed is really earthy colored and blue on ivory texture but since of being seen primarily in papers, was for the most part thought to be high contrast.
Champ of the 2011 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève prize for Best Design Watch, the UR-110 utilizations circling satellite complications to show the time on the correct side of the watch.
Three hour satellites follow a vertically arced line, evaluated from 0 to an hour, in a descending movement. Planetary outfitting keeps the satellites and their bolt molded “torpedoes” in equal arrangement as they alternate to show the time as they pass the hour long track.
This exhibition is made conceivable by methods for a design highlighting three degrees of complexity:
– A focal merry go round furnishing the complication with security and balance.
– Planetary equipping guaranteeing the equal pivot of the three hour satellites as they circle the dial.
– Three counter-turning hour modules – each mounted on a planetary stuff and comprising an hour satellite, minute hand and balance. These three modules are in consistent counter-pivot to counter the bearing of turn of the focal merry go round.
Just as showing the hours and minutes, the UR-110 EastWood likewise includes a Control Board on the dial side with markers for “Day/Night” and “Oil Change” just as little seconds on a sub dial.
Turning the watch over, the titanium back encases the inventive programmed winding framework which uses twin turbines to limit wear. Indeed, with their bended shapes, they offer expanded air protection from the rotor’s free course of turn and less protection from its winding pivot.
The development, beating at 28,800 vibrations each hour, offers a force hold of 39 hours. The new Urwerk UR-110 EastWood has a cost of Swiss Francs 105,000 with the Indonesian Macassar coal black bezel and Swiss Francs 106,000 with the South African Red Ivory wood bezel.
