How about some platinum? Urwerk UR-110PT and UR-110PTH


Two stunning new additions have joined Urwerk’s 110 collection, named UR-110PT and UR-110PTH. The newcomers feature a style similar to other pieces of the collection, including the complex dial layout. There’s the familiar prominent bezel, and this time it’s in platinum. The PT version has a satin-finished bezel, which gives the platinum a more natural look. On the other hand, we have the PTH model, featuring a sleek blackened bezel with matte finish. This is contrasted with attractive red numerals and indexes, which looks very effective. Both watches are available in limited collections, of just 20 pieces per watch.

The base for these timepieces is a case made of Grade 5 titanium, measuring 47mm x 51mm. The crown here is protected by an integrated protector, which nicely blends in with the style of the case. For the PT watch, this protector is made of sand-blasted titanium, further enhancing the appeal of this timepiece. On the back of the case, we can see the engraving reminding us of the limited availability of the timepiece, and there are also two apertures revealing little bit of the movement. As for the water resistance, the watch can handle pressures up to 3 ATM.

Looking at the dial, one of the first things we notice here are the revolving modules, with diamond-cut bevels. These modules, mounted on planetary gears, are the essential components of the revolving satellite complication which occupies most of the dial. The numerals here are either red or yellow, depending on the particular version. The rightmost part of the dial is reserved for the minute arc, also in yellow or red. But that’s not all to this dial; we can also spot a special Night/Day indicator in the upper left segment of the dial, as well as a small seconds counter. Finally, there’s the “Oil Change” indicator, which tells you when it is time for a service of the watch – pretty cool feature.

A look from the side

Inside the watch, you’ll find the UR 9.01 mechanical movement, with automatic winding. A part of this caliber can be seen from the dial of the watch, thanks to its open nature. The movement beats at 4 Hz, and features a power reserve of 39 hours. It uses a monometallic balance, and it also has a flat balance spring. The movement draws its power from a single barrel. Finally, the winding system for this movement consists of a unidirectional winding rotor, which is regulated by two turbines.

As sleek as the front

As for the strap, the UR-110PT and UR-110PTH are both complemented with a stylish black leather strap, which nicely goes along with the aesthetics of these timepieces. Felix Baumgartner, co-founder of URWERK, describes these new watches as highlighting the company’s craftsmanship. He also adds that their timepieces have very contemporary and even futuristic designs, made by latest and greatest in technology. But this is contrasted with the fact that the watches are decorated by hand, which adds more to the quality of URWERK timepieces. The two latest 110s certainly do their job well in keeping up with this philosophy.
