A rare opportunity has arisen on the Pre-Owned to own a piece of Hollywood history!
We are auctioning to the highest bidder the same UR-111C BLACK watch Robert Downey Jnr aka Iron Man wore on his wrist to the premiers of Marvel's Avengers Endgame in both New York and Los Angeles!
Proceeds from the sale of this unique watch will be donated to Random Act Funding. A charitable organisation founded by Susan and Robert Downey Jr, which provides financial support at the local, national and global levels. Beneficiaries in the last year included Boys & Girls Club, United Friends of the Children, Upward Bound House, Taraloka Foundation, and Toys for Tots. Some of this year's benefiting partners will include CRI-Help, Atlanta Children’s Shelter, Children’s Restoration Network, and Covenant House Georgia. This auction will be the third time URWERK have helped to raise funds with the Downey family.
As by now, you might have heard that the actor himself personally chose URWERK as his watch of choice for the character of Tony Stark/Iron Man. Since Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, where he was wearing a UR-110 RG, and then again in several scenes in Endgame where he chose a UR-105 CT IRON. An organic relationship and not a paid-for promotion, something we are very proud of as URWERK does not pay celebrity ambassadors. The genre of the movie also reflects our own DNA with our futuristic designs and was a great collaboration.
Both of these pieces were auctioned with Phillips, in association with Bacs & Russo. In 2018 the UR-110 RG fetching USD 150,000, and the UR-105 CT Iron a staggering USD 312,500 last year.
Now we are pleased to announce that the UR-111C BLACK the actor wore for the premiers of the blockbusting movie premiers in the US is available exclusively on the URWERK Pre-Owned site. By invitation only, so if you are reading this, you are one of the lucky ones with a chance to own this individual piece. Engraved on the case back is the actor's initials RDJ to signify this is the very watch worn by Robert Downey Jnr.
There’s one sure thing about the UR-111C Black, you’ve never seen anything like it before. The grooved case in black-coated steel and titanium curves along its ample length and width. The curved sides held by transversal screws in half-pipes. And what’s that roller in the middle? Or the lever along the case-side? Nothing is obvious; all are intriguing.
With its unique linear time display of jumping hours, retrograde linear minutes, precise digital minutes and digital seconds relayed via an optical fibre conduit. The UR-111C BLACK is undoubtedly an intriguing object of time. Plus the lack of a crown and addition of retractable level on the side of the case. We have once again brought something new to the watchmaking world.
The fluted roller set horizontally in the middle of the case replaces a traditional crown, pulling out the side lever from the case turns it into the time setting control, which can be used in either direction to set the linear time display.
The fiery orange numerals pop from the jet black PVD steel and titanium case, with its curved case back to ensure a snug fit to the wrist. Wearing a UR-111C will make anyone feel like a superhero. Initially limited to 25 pieces only in Black. The RDJ engraved plate on the case back sets this piece apart.
Now sadly Ironman is no more, but his memory can continue on with his UR-111C BLACK!
Felix Baumgartner - “There has to be a strong bond with a mechanism that merges into your wrist. For this reason, we created a new interface with the watch. Instead of the conventional crown, we conceived a roller integrated into the top of the case for a new sensation. We also have a strong bond now with Robert Downey Jnr and for him to select the UR-111C BLACK as his watch of choice for such a big occasion as the Endgame Premiers was a big moment in our URWERK history!”
Martin Frei - "The UR-111C BLACK is an intriguing design, in which every detail reveals another to draw you deeper into the soul of your watch. No feature is gratuitous, lines and volumes are meticulously thought out and coordinated into a coherent and harmonious living instrument. It brought great satisfaction knowing Robert Downey Jnr chose URWERK to be in the Marvel universe."
Condition Rating UR-1: As new, no or very few signs of wear, the movement is serviced and in working condition.
