Urwerk Breaks The Mold

Youthful Swiss watchmaker Urwerk has once again broken the mold with its new UR-105 T-Rex – a measuring instrument that reproduces on the wrist the most symbolic and universal manifestation of the passing hours: the path of the sun from its rising to its setting. On the UR-105 T-Rex, a single hour pointer thus travels from east to west, creating an authentically universal yet minimalist depiction of time.

Housed in a textured pebble-shaped case, the satellite hours of the timepiece wander along their stage-center 60-minute journey, protected only by a bronze suit of armor. URWERK presents its UR-105 T-Rex, nicknamed after its atypical case that is crisscrossed by a raised, concentrically ribbed pattern evoking the scales of certain reptiles – a textured, bark-like coating that is soft to the touch.

The means chosen to indicate the time in this watch are ancient, inherited from the Sumerian civilization and dating back to the second millennium BC, when the shadow cast by the sun playing across their imposing monuments served as their clock. Technically speaking, the UR-105 T-Rex is a satellite hour’s watch such as only URWERK makes them. Four satellites, each bearing three hour numerals, successively parade past the minute rail.

The watch is a limited edition with only 22 pieces. The case is made of bronze and caseback in black PVD titanium. The watch measures 39.50 mm x length: 53 mm and is water resistant up to 30 meters.
