‘T’ for Tarantula. This edition of the 103 features genetic codes borrowed from one of the most famous members of the world of arachnids, the Tarantula. In the classic UR-103, the central element is an orbital cross in titanium. In the UR-103T, the titanium cross has been replaced by a completely redesigned structure that wraps around the hour satellites in a protective embrace - though we might easily imagine something more sinister.
“I think that the duration of an hour should be a period of play. It should be a celebration for that one specific hour in life and so you should have on your watch something exciting, thrilling and engaging to represent it.”
HOUR SATELLITE INDICATION
In the classic UR-103, the central element is an orbital cross in titanium. In the new UR-103T, the titanium cross has been replaced by a completely redesigned structure in ARCAP, a very stable copper/nickel alloy that wraps around the hour satellites in a protective embrace.
