URWERK in a New York state of mind! We are proud to present the UR-105 CT IRON to the Pre-Owned collection. First launched in 2017, URWERK's 20th anniversary year.
In 1997, co-founders Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei were together in New York, the city of their dreams. Wondering around the streets, taking in the images of New York, its redbrick houses, its Art Deco skyscrapers and its gleaming subway. These pictures filled their minds, and would never leave them.
These images and experiences were a direct inspiration to the UR-105 CT IRON. The UR-105 CT is a beautiful object that fits snugly in the palm of your hand. Its unique shape is a remarkable octagon with deep grooves along its length. The Art Deco influences are apparent in its geometric angularity and symmetry.
Sliding the catch on the top of the case reveals the mechanism of the UR-105 CT. It’s a new wandering hour indication based on an openwork carousel, which carries the four satellites, each bearing three numerals for hours. The hours successively sweep past the minute's scale for an analogue and digital display of the time. The mirror-polished upper case resembles the towering skyscrapers like the Empire State or the Chrysler Building, giving NY its iconic silhouette.
Look into the skeletonized display and you will also see a power-reserve indicator and digital seconds make up the rest of the information displayed on the dial. The digital seconds are remarkable in that they indicate tens of seconds. The mechanism was made using a photolithographic process, with each marker open-worked to make it as light as possible. It thus weighs less than a tenth of a gram.
Turning the UR-105 CT IRON over to the titanium case back and two pneumatic turbines, which govern the self-winding rate, set with a lever just below. In the FULL position, the slightest movement of the wrist is harnessed to rewind the barrel spring. Turn the lever to STOP to disengage the self-winding system and wind up the UR-105 using the crown. An intermediate position, RED (for reduced) engages the turbines to dampen the winding rotor and avoid overstressing the mainspring if you are particularly active.
Felix Baumgartner - "The UR-105 CT is a watch with a flexible design. When it is closed, it looks austere, with only the time indication visible. Open the protective cover and you delve into a metallic environment that is quite cold, yet you perceive a notion of speed and an effort at efficiency. The UR-105 CT's carousel has
been completely redesigned, becoming lighter, stronger and far more effective."
Martin Frei - "The UR-105 CT Streamliner has a minimalist design
with few frills and clean lines. In the initial drawings, I thought of the Empire State, the Chrysler and the Comcast buildings. That is why it has that vertical structure that seems to go on forever.”
