If when you think of a pocket watch you picture a gold coloured circular styled victorian timepiece.Iit might be time to have a rethink, after feasting your eyes on this modern take of the traditional pocket watch in the form of the awesome Urwerk UR-1001.
The Urwerk UR-1001 has been constructed out of a single block of metal, and the complications within the watch enable it to track time from one second to a 1000 years.
On the rear of the watch a flap folds down to reveal a counter that is counting down the next 1000 years, together with a slightly quicker 100 year countdown timer. There is also a maintenance dial, positioned middle left that indicates when the watch needs a service or an oil change, normally every three years.
Unfortunately the price and availability of the Urwerk UR-1001 pocket watch are still unknown, but if the price is ever revealed will we keep you updated, but I would start saving your pennies now.
