Description

Urwerk introduced bronze for the first time in 2016 with the UR-105, which was then the most basic model in the lineup. Initially, the use of this metal, often associated with the past and ancient items, may seem out of place in the context of the typically ultra-modern designs associated with Urwerk. However, the brand has a penchant for doing things differently. In this instance, bronze is not employed to evoke a vintage diver's watch aesthetic, but rather to create an object with a more natural appearance and a primal allure, enhanced by the unique texture of the case.

in 2021, the brand introduces this same design concept on its new classic model, the UR-100. Presented in 2019, this watch is a sort of back to basics, the “essential” Urwerk with a focus mostly on its signature display. Since its debut in the 1990s, the independent brand created by Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner stands out with its radical, futuristic designs and its original way to portray time. The idea of wandering hours, like those on a sundial, is omnipresent. The stage was set from the very beginning with the creation of the UR101/102 displaying time on an arc. Then came the satellite time indication with a host of creative and complex iterations… satellites, cams, transporters, rotating cubes, telescopic hands, and retrograde indications. But with the UR-100, there was the intention to go back to the roots of the brand, with a display that echoed the first watches of Frei and Baumgartner.
