Given their distinctive industrial style and boxes dug from a certain military production line, it is forgivable to assume that no one’s hands have ever touched Urwerk at least outside the movement. This is why the unique watchmakers use UR-100V Iron to return to basics.
The idea behind the watch is that the latest products of the UR-100 series disperse the basic components of Urwerk watches with less aesthetic interference, that is, the entire case is hand-modified and completely completed internally. This alone deserves a round of applause.
The combination of polished, matt, frosted and Urwerk’s so-called shot peening (also called shot peening) stainless steel canned titanium can form an impressive shape for other thinned trunks (or thinned trunks with fake Urwerk) The multi-faceted appearance can be obtained-situation.
This event is a bit old and can be traced back to the early days of Urwerk, when their iconic satellite movement was very novel and enough to attract people’s attention. Since then, watchmakers have come a long way, with colors and finishes ranging from odd to extreme. It’s great to see them return to their early roots, not to mention one of the most handsome Urwerk to date.
This watch fake uses the latest 12.02 movement, a slight redesign of Urwerk’s iconic carousel timer. The main change is to bring the satellite hours closer to the minute orbit, making it easy to read at a glance. It also has a shiny new planetary turbine to adjust the movement.
The movement is also finished with sanded and sandblasted anodized aluminum, sanded and ruthenium-plated brass, and individual round polished screws to within one inch of its life. It makes the overall appearance of UR-100V Iron more elegant. It may still be avant-garde, but it is also very wearable.
Apart from the monochrome metal, the only highlights are the blue hour numbers and minute scale, as well as the red minute arrow and 60-second marker. This is the only Urwerk, you can actually say that less is more.
