A few months prior, I visited Singapore and saw this fantastic piece of craftsmanship in the showcase of in the Millenia Walk shopping center. This watch, a , was a mind boggling eye-catcher.
Last week I got an introduction of most recent creation, the UR103 Hexagon. It likewise incorporated a specialized depiction of this time piece.

The introduction of URWERK?¢Ç¨Ñ¢s ?Ç¬’Black?Ç¬ª restricted releases returns to 1999 with the introduction of an exceptional variant of URWERK?¢Ç¨Ñ¢s absolute first watch, – the UR102 ?¢ç¨äú which was dressed in dark and called ?Ç¬’ Night Watch ?Ç¬ª. The idea was resuscitated in 2006 with the now legendary ?Ç¬’ Black Bird ?Ç¬ª, a creation with combat style and a name got from military aeronautics. The ?Ç¬’ Black Shark ?Ç¬ª continued in 2007.
Today the UR103 ?Ç¬’ Hexagon ?Ç¬ª ?¢ç¨äú a restricted release of just 10 pieces ?¢ç¨äú goes ahead under the spotlight, with its dark platinum case.
Four circling and turning satellites show the hours, with each satellite demonstrating the time in a both simple and computerized style as it bends across the moment chapter.T he four hour-satellites of the UR-103 are made in aluminum and are suspended under an evaluation 2 titanium orbital cross. The complication is mounted on a non-attractive ARCAP P40 base plate giving better strength and security than customary metals. The hour-satellites complete a full upheaval under the orbital cross like clockwork. As the satellite methodologies the crown position, an inside Geneva cross makes it go through a 120 degree pivot on its own hub.
