A new wristwatch has been unveiled by prestigious watch designers and makers Urwerk in the form of the Urwerk UR-111C. The unique watch design displays the minutes twice both linearly and digitally in the running seconds are displayed using optical fibres.
Other features include a jumping hours display and unique roller positioned on the top that replaces a traditional watch crown. The Urwerk UR-111C watch is available in both iron and gunmetal finishes. “In the URWERK tradition, none of the indications of the UR-111C watch are conventional: The minutes are shown in two different ways – linearly for eyes pleasure and digitally for precision. Never has a roller on the case performed the functions of the crown, nor have the running seconds meandered across a cluster of optical fibers. Nor would it be an authentic URWERK watch if its case didn’t look as if it had been designed by a Sci-fi passionate.”
“The linear retrograde minute indication is inspired by the CC1 King Cobra, but is visually different with a longer diagonal track of minutes. The UR-111C also features world-firsts in watchmaking such as the optical fibers, known as an image conduit, and which transports the indication of seconds, or the crown integrated into the top of the case above and parallel to the winding stem.”
