The creative watchmaker URWERK has developed another new way of displaying time, its latest model UR-112 AGGREGAT.
The new model from the creative Swiss watchmaker uses a series of rotating aluminum prisms to jump the time on the left side of the display and the minutes on the right side.
More information can be found under the spring metal shield on the top of the watch, which can be released by pressing the button, displaying a 48-hour power reserve indicator and a hollow silicone second wheel.
The new system is essentially an adaptation of URWERK’s “planetary” system, which is widely used throughout the series, rotated 90 degrees.
Felix Baumgartner, co-founder and watchmaker of URWERK, said: “We named this watch Aggregat because UR-112 combines different elements.” “We use a single energy source for all displays of this UR-112. Powered by mechanical devices. The distribution of this force is cautious, and some are even’recovered’, so from the digital seconds on the top of the dial to the dragged minutes and the opposite extreme jumping hours, each display accurately receives what it needs Energy, no waste.”
The first version of UR-112 is a limited edition of 25 pieces, made of matte PVD treated titanium, the main case body is anthracite, and the sides and top cover are black.
“The inspiration for this UR-112 is diverse,” explained Martin Frei, designer and co-founder of URWERK. “The Bugatti Atlantique’s grille is the most obvious. A great car with a contrasting spine that emphasizes absolute symmetry.”
