In the enchanted realm of horology, URWERK, the brainchild of Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner, has once again elevated the art of timekeeping with the mesmerizing UR-100V Stardust. Renowned for their avant-garde designs and innovative approach to portraying time, the dynamic duo has crafted a celestial masterpiece that transcends the ordinary. Let us take you on a journey through the stars as we unveil the enchanting allure of the UR-100V Stardust.
Diamond-Dusted Voyage to the Cosmos
Since its inception, URWERK has sailed the seas of time in vessels adorned with many materials and textures. The UR-100 and UR-100V, in particular, have explored the dimensions of titanium, electrum, scaly T-rex textures, and sleek carbon. In 2023, URWERK reaches for the stars, presenting a diamond-set version of the UR-100V that sparkles like a starlit night. Adorned with 400 snow-set diamonds, the case, the crown, and even the pin buckle shimmer with an otherworldly brilliance.
As one of the brand's more wearable models, the UR-100V Stardust boasts a case with dimensions of 41mm width, 49.7mm length, and a thickness of 14mm. The steel case middle, set with 400 brilliant-cut diamonds, transforms the watch into a celestial vessel, capturing the essence of a star-dusted surface.
Orbital Magic Unveiled: UR-100V Stardust Features
Protected by an ultra-domed sapphire crystal, the UR-100V Stardust unveils URWERK's signature system of three rotating satellites, tracing a 120-degree arched track. The luminous blue and white minute markers create a celestial dance against the backdrop of space. Witness the magic as the arrow-shaped hour indicator performs a retrograde jump at 60, popping up in the astronomical indications zone at 10 o'clock to reveal the distance travelled on Earth. At 2 o'clock, the Earth's journey around the Sun is elegantly displayed.
Adding to the celestial splendour, the minute's track is adorned with 36 brilliant-cut diamonds, creating a sparkling canvas as time unfolds. The complex calibre UR12.02 powers this cosmic ballet, an automatic movement with a drilled rotor governed by a Windfänger airscrew, beating at 2,800vph with a 48-hour power reserve.
