Urwerk UR-CC1 Watch

       A youthful watch-making company Urwerk SA traces its roots back to 1995, when two brothers Felix and Thomas Baumgartner, who shared a profound passion for the watch-making world, and their friend, a visionary artist, Martin Frei realized that have the same dream- to push the limits of watch-making innovation and originality, beyond the limits of our imagination.

       The master creation of those three enthusiast friends Urwerk, was launched in 1997, and rapidly became known among the watch connoisseurs worldwide for following its forward-thinking philosophy, commitment to limitless innovation and for bringing a powerfully vanguard approach to the horological creation.

       Recently the original luxury watchmaker brought to life another superb sophisticated model, the eye-catching UR-CC1 watch, a charming timepiece that draws its inspiration in the fascinating world of retro automotives and, in a vintage Patek Philippe 1959 model and beautifully combines multiple linear displays.

       The watch is fitted with the supremely complex, emblematic King Cobra case, measuring 45.7mm x 43.5mm x 15mm, and which is characterized by a charismatic design which demonstrates a true symphony of rough edges and soft curves, which create a powerful impression, enhanced by the playful combination of brushed and polished surfaces. The sophisticated architecture of the timepiece, furthermore, incorporates two sapphire crystals, which protect the two elongated sectors of the watch’s unconventional time display.

       The timepiece is characterized by unparalleled functionality; instead of a traditional dial it features, two elongates sectors that display the time through rotating cylinders. The lower sector of the watch indicates hours and minutes, and the mechanical complication which animates it is the result of the over three years of meticulous research. The upper sector displays small seconds, in both digital and linear modes for the very first time in the watch-making history, a remarkable horological achievement obtained through extremely meticulous techniques, which require the maximum of concentration and skill.

       Especially created for an exigent, audacious customer, UR-CC1 watch, comes matched with a black alligator leather strap, and was created in a limited edition of 50 timepieces, 25 in grey gold and 25 in black gold, fitted with titanium case backs.

       Due to its elevated degree of mechanical sophistication, the timepiece will surely be a coveted collectable item, and the dream of any impassionate watch collector, but for most of them, it will remain just a beautiful dream, because of its sky-high price tag of over $100,000.00.
