Swiss independent watch brand URWERK’s “Special Project” (Special Project) is a laboratory of unbelievable concepts. Each timepiece demonstrates its determination to transcend the traditional boundaries of timepieces. This series of new work UR-112 Aggregat is a wonderful work conceived from scratch by the founder and chief watchmaker Felix Baumgartner and another founder and art design director Martin Frei. It can be regarded as a dream of pioneering new mechanical technology, focusing on technology. Innovative exploration, precise gear system and inlays, it can be called a masterpiece of watch craftsmanship.
URWERK UR-112 Aggregat two-tone watch
Dark charcoal gray PVD-treated titanium case, black PVD-treated titanium on both sides and protective cover, diameter 42 x 51 mm, triangular cylinder jumping hours, triangular cylinder jumping minutes, jumping seconds, power reserve display , UR-13.01 self-winding movement, power storage 48 hours.
Under the mirrors on both sides of the UR-112 Aggregat are triangular cylindrical hour and minute indicators: on the left is the hour and minute, with 12 engraved hour numbers filled with Super-LumiNova luminous material, like a mechanical flipping display panel, which turns as time advances. Give an hour number. On the right is the minute display driven by the same system, which jumps every 5 minutes.
UR-112 Aggregat’s skipped hour and minute displays are coated with Super-LumiNova luminous material, like a mechanical page-turning display board, which turns out numbers as time advances.
\The power of jumping the hour comes from the advancement of the minutes. At the moment of 60 minutes, the power accumulated in the previous 3,600 seconds of walking will be released instantly, pushing the next hour number to turn out. The movement is always the source of power for the watch. A cardan shaft is connected to the head and tail ends of the movement. This cardan shaft is an important part of the entire power system. It is at a 90° right angle to the horizontal and lateral time display system. The gears at both ends are connected with a series of pinions and transmission wheels to send power to the time display system.
The movement of the UR-112 Aggregat weighs only 25.5 grams and has a skip-type hour, minute and second display. The cutting-edge technology gathers among them, the structure is extremely sophisticated, and the production and inlay of fine parts are the challenges of watchmaking technology.
Felix Baumgartner explained: “UR-112 is named Aggregat because of the different elements of the watch. It is worth noting that a single power source drives all timekeeping and display operations, which is extremely efficient. Some of the power is even “recyclable” from the upper part of the dial. The number of jumps between seconds and minutes and hours, each display accurately receives the required power, and there is no power wasted.”
The hunting buy watches online case of UR-112 Aggregat is equipped with a titanium protective cover, and there are buttons on both sides of the case, and the protective cover can be opened by pressing one of the buttons.
The hunting watch case of UR-112 Aggregat is equipped with a titanium protective cover. There is a button on each side of the case. Just press one of the buttons to open the protective cover. It will immediately show up in seconds. The etched minute number of seconds on the quality turntable is in addition to the rotation, and the 48-hour power reserve indicator next to it is the only analog indicator in the entire watch.
Open the protective cover to see the power storage display on the left and the skip seconds on the right.
The first UR-112 Aggregat watch is limited to 25 pieces. It has a matte dark charcoal gray case. The sides and protective cover are black. It is deep and cool, yet elegant. Martin Frei said: “UR-112 is very inspirational. For example, the radiator cover of the Bugatti Atlantique car is the most obvious. The contrasting color ridges highlight the symmetrical proportions of the car body, as well as the elements of Middle Eastern culture, memories of travel, the sound, smell and experience of different places. All have enriched my imagination and implicitly transformed into watch design elements.”
The UR-112 Aggregat watch adopts a two-tone design. The case is made of matte dark charcoal gray PVD-treated titanium, while the sides and protective cover are made of black titanium.
The UR-112 Aggregat watch is full of style and hides the secret of time art, waiting for you to appreciate it.
