Equipped with a pair of astronomical indicators.
Urwerk ’s latest work is known for its innovative, avant-garde complexity and chassis inspired by science fiction, and has attracted much attention. The UR-100 SpaceTime is equipped with two quirky celestial indicators, further increasing the price of the astronomical theme-it is also priced as an entry-level model.
UR-100 adopts the brand’s iconic hovering hour satellite display, in which the traditional hand is replaced by a semi-circular minute dial, on which three discs mounted on the turntable are swept in sequence. It was first invented for the clock of the Vatican City in the 17th century, and then was promoted by Audemars Piguet and “Star Wheel” for watches in the early 1990s.
However, it was Urwerk who lingered for a few hours when he entered the 21st century as UR-103 in 2003. Although not the first Urwerk fake watch, UR-103 is the brand’s landmark (and the most recent UR-105 is a tribute to the original).
On the UR-100 time and space, the number of hours drifts further: after 60 minutes (or an hour) of the red minute hand, it disappears under the bridge and reappears at the 10 o’clock incision to indicate the distance to the earth measured on the equator The obtained rotation axis is 555 kilometers every 20 minutes. Another red pointer at two o’clock is used to measure the distance the earth orbits the sun, which is 35,740 kilometers every 20 minutes. www.fanreviewwatch.com
However, both astronomical distance displays are a philosophical exercise, not a mechanical development. In theory, both of these displays rely on the same hour satellite display, and only the scale on the bridge can indicate the distance. The scale length on the bridge is 20 minutes, which is why both measurements are zoomed for 20 minutes.
The turntable of UR-100 SpaceTime is made of aluminum and is hollowed out to display hourly satellites, each with four digits. Beneath the satellite is a beryllium bronze Maltese cross, which causes the nonlinear rotation of the satellite.
The case is made of stainless steel or PVD-coated titanium metal. It is an elongated octagon with vertical grooves on the sides and a domed sapphire crystal on top. It is 41 mm long x 49.7 mm and 14 mm high. It looks chunky but wearable.
It is worth noting that the UR-100 space-time case is indeed more angular than the watch defined by Urwerk. In fact, the shape of the case is a bit like a ring from the 1970s, especially when the upper surface has a concentric brushed surface.
The most unusual thing for Urwerk is that the calibration table is displayed on the back of the UR-100’s display. Internal 12.01. The perforated rotor covers most of the movement, but below is the Zenith Elite self-winding movement, which is the basic movement of most Urwerk watches.
The bottom plate of the movement is made of non-metallic nickel-copper alloy ARCAP. It is equipped with a flat turbine-a small propeller-shaped wheel at the bottom of the rotor-to regulate the speed of the rotor. According to fake Urwerk, a flat turbine or windfänger (Swiss German for “air trap”) makes every six revolutions of the rotor, and in the process slows the rotor rotation.
