Boutique Haute Horlogerie Urwerk has been at the forefront of futuristic mechanical watchmaking for 25 years, and during its 25 years of existence, the brand has created a range of truly otherworldly models. Its latest design concept, the UR-112 Aggregat, first released in 2021, is undoubtedly the wildest one, with a wedge-shaped overall shape, a rotating barrel instead of a traditional pointer, and a driveshaft and differential system in the mainspring and mainspring. move torque between. Its four independent monitors. While the grey-black two-tone matte titanium case of the original UR-112 Aggregat accentuates the rugged and futuristic form of the design, for the first major release in 2022, Urwerk returns to this with a noticeably brighter interpretation. concept. The limited edition Urwerk UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey mixes exposed stainless steel and titanium surfaces to give this radical asymmetrical design a sharper, more striking character without losing any of its technical boldness.
While the 42mm wide, 51mm long and 16mm thick case of the Urwerk UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey is the same shape as the original UR-112 Aggregat, this version’s new finish drastically changes how that design looks in the image personality. In its original matte black and grey exterior, this wedge-shaped, sloping groove form is reminiscent of a piece of purposeful futuristic military gear, but the switch to a mix of titanium and stainless steel elements accentuates what the case hides Complexity. The rounded chamfers run the length of the case sides, the streamlined grooves, and the stylized “hood scoop” on the technically very unorthodox Hunter caseback, which is rich in polished, sandblasted and textured elements , which can be visually broken and brushed along the broad plane of the shell body. By using two different metals, Urwerk has maintained the two-tone look for the UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey, but the end result is more layered than its predecessor’s warm gray and black. Interestingly, however, the UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey’s water resistance rating drops to a paltry 30 meters, while the original model offered a sporty 100-meter rating. fake watches for sale
Strictly speaking, the Urwerk UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey has no dial. The standard chronograph functions are handled by a pair of rotating components at 6 o’clock, taking the brand’s iconic satellite hour complication in a new, more complicated direction. Both the hour and minute displays use a set of black rotating prisms inscribed with sharp Arabic numerals, which can both rotate and revolve around a central point to display the current time in combination with a fixed indicator line. While the concept is puzzlingly complex in theory, in the image, the display is immediately intuitive and easy to read, especially due to its time-jumping mechanism. Urwerk placed two additional subdials directly on top of the movement under the Hunter caseback. The first of these is the digital running seconds display, highlighted on a perlage movement plate with a striking red anodized window. To the left of this display is a neat graphical power-reserve indicator sub-dial. Compared to the out-of-the-box design approach other monitors take, this final sub-dial is very traditional, but fits nicely into the divider design in the initial image.
Like its predecessor, the Urwerk UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey uses the brand’s wild in-house UR-13.01 automatic movement. To power the watch’s unique planetary hour and minute displays at 6 o’clock, these elements are connected to the main gear train via an automotive-style drivetrain, including a longitudinal titanium driveshaft connected to the differential. In addition to the unique layout, this striking design uses an energy recovery mechanism to extract torque from the rotating components displayed on the planetary minutes. These systems enable this complex, heavy and power-hungry movement to manage a respectable 48-hour power reserve at a beat rate of 28,800 bph. Urwerk paired the UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey with a tapered black textile strap.
The new limited edition Urwerk UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey features new, more sophisticated finishes and a brighter overall look, bringing more sophistication and striking features to its most outlandish concept to date. While Urwerk fake didn’t specify how many models will be produced, given the size of the previous model’s version, total production is likely to be around 25 units.
