UR-220 SL ASIMOV
With this novel variation in its 220 collection, the independent brand lights up time data on your wrist. When stunning becomes part of everyday life!
What about living in a nightless world? In the short story by talented writer Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), Nightfall, this is actually the case for the inhabitants of planet Lagash until the day where the unthinkable occurs. Here on Earth, our days are fortunately paced by the sun’s illumination. Yet, Urwerk wished that owners of its UR-220 model could take advantage of the opportunity to read satellite time at any time of the day or night, even in total darkness. The third variation in the collection stands out from previous pieces thanks to its luminous cubes. These yellow-colored elements, real light-catchers, thanks to their active-pigment composition, are crafted in solid blocks of Swiss Grade X1 BL Super-LumiNova® imagined by the firm RC Tritec. As such, the UR-220 SL Asimov dial offers optimal time data reading.
In addition to the hours, the impressive retrograde minute and scale hovered over as well as the double power reserve display dazzle at night with their blue- and green-glowing luminescent coating.
The black carbon case (43.8 x 53.6 x 14.8 mm) hosts the hand-wound UR-7.20 caliber (48 hours of autonomy). On the caseback, an “Oil change” indicator specifies the number of months the movement has been running enabling the wearer to keep an eye on when it’s time to service the watch. This reference with its futuristic look is worn on a Vulcarboné® rubber strap clasped by a black DLC buckle and a Velcro® fastener.
Price: CHF147,000 VAT-exclu.
