UR-100V “BLUE PLANET”
FEET FIRMLY ON THE GROUND
This variation, a true allegory of our globe in the solar system, takes on the azure hues which are ever-present in our environment. A 25-piece limited edition!
After Iron with its futuristic look and T-Rex which whisked us off back through time, Urwerk has just unveiled a novel variation of its UR-100 V under the name of “Blue Planet”, to better enjoy the present moment in time. This 25-piece series, a metaphor of our Earth, is almost entirely dressed in the color of the sky and the oceans. The case featuring a matt finish (41 mm wide and 49.7 mm long) takes on a deep shade obtained using a PVD process (Physical Vapor Deposition). This case protects the openworked dial and the impressive rotating carousel dedicated to the satellite display and to the retrograde minute boasting the same color. In this pure monochromic scenescape, the fluorescent yellow and green arrowhead hand and the digit 60 on the minute tracker add a luminous touch. The azure hue also reigns on the UR 12.02 caliber mechanical components like the bidirectional oscillating weight and the Windfänger-profiled helical system which regulates automatic winding. The owner-wearer of this timepiece can admire these through the sapphire-crystal caseback. Incidentally, this movement delivers a power reserve of 48 hours when fully wound.
Following in the footsteps of the first model and subsequent variations, the case-middle details the distance covered from a point on the equator in 20 minutes, 555.55 km, and that of the journey of the Earth around the Sun over this same period of time, 35,742 km.
This UR-100 V “Blue Planet” is complemented by a high-tech textile strap, adorned with blue on the front and on its clasp.
Price: CHF48,000 VAT-exclu.
