Meet the latest creation to emerge from Urwerk’s Special Project laboratory, the Urwerk UR-112 Aggregat. Housed in a spaceship-like titanium case measuring 42mm-wide, 51mm-long, and a considerable 16mm-thick, the watch houses a complex movement that can be viewed when the pushers on both sides are pressed.
“The sources of inspiration for this UR-112 are many and diffuse” explains Martin Frei, “The grille of the Bugatti Atlantique is the most obvious. An exceptional automobile whose contrasting spine emphasizes absolute symmetry. Some Middle Eastern influences are also vivid in my mind. The memories, the smells, the experiences during my travels nourish my imagination and are found in all my creations. Found by subtle touch.”
Inside is the proprietary UR-13.01 automatic movement beating at 4Hz; 28´800 vph, and 48 hours of power reserve. Indications: Jumping digital hour on triangular satellite prisms; running digital minute on triangular satellite prisms; digital seconds; power reserve.
Nicknamed Aggregat the UR-112 refers to the way the watch aggregates disparate elements to make a whole.
The Urwerk UR-112 Aggregat comes completed by a ruggedly black textile strap, while preserving the tough and sporty character of the design.
Priced at CHF 250,000 (approx. $271,427) this first edition UR-112 Aggregat is limited to 25 pieces with a matte finish. For more info be sure to visit Urwerk’s website.
