The introduction of the Urwerk UR-110 was a revelation, just like all the other watches Urwerk fabricates. Now they are introducing a new version of the Urwerk UR-110, the Eastwood version.
Precious wood, bespoke tweed strap, attractive mechanics: These elements have been united in the UR-110 “EastWood”. This ultimate recital of the UR-110, a.k.a. the “Torpedo”, astonishes with a new, richly polished ebony bezel and modern take on tweed, blending cutting-edge technology with tailored flair and a vintage twist.
In the UR-110 “EastWood”, the time is always shown on the right side of the watch. Three hour satellites follow a vertically arced line, graded from 0 to 60 minutes, in a downward motion. Planetary gearing keeps the satellites and their arrow-shaped “torpedoes” in parallel formation as they take turns to indicate the time as they pass the 60-minute track. This performance is made possible by means of an architecture featuring three levels of complexity:
– A central carousel providing the complication with stability and equilibrium
– Planetary gearing assuring the parallel rotation of the three hour satellites as they orbit the dial – The three counter-rotating hour modules – each comprising an hour satellite, minute hand and counter balance
– are each mounted on a planetary gear.These three modules are in constant counter-rotation to counter the direction of rotation of the central carousel.
The UR-110’s technology can be appreciated through the large panoramic sapphire crystal. As well as indicating the hours and minutes, the UR-110 “EastWood” also features a Control Board on the dial side with indicators for “Day/Night” and “Oil Change” – URWERK’s service interval display – as well as small seconds on a sub dial. Turning the watch over, the titanium back encloses the innovative automatic winding system regulated by dual turbines.
