• UR-111C

In the URWERK tradition, none of the indications of the UR-111C watch are conventional: The minutes are shown in two different ways - linearly for eyes pleasure and digitally for precision. Never has a roller on the case performed the functions of the crown, nor have the running seconds meandered across a cluster of optical fibers. Nor would it be an authentic URWERK watch if its case didn’t look as if it had been designed by a Sci-fi passionate.

“There has to be a strong bond with a mechanism that merges into your wrist: a machine becomes
part of you and gives you information in return for energy. It’s an exchange. For this reason, we created
a new interface with the watch. Instead of the conventional crown at the end of the stem, we
conceived a roller integrated into the top of the case for a new sensation.”

Felix Baumgartner

Dimensions

JUMPING HOURS, LINEAR RETROGRADE MINUTES AND DIGITAL SECONDS BROUGHT BY OPTICAL FIBERS.

The linear retrograde minute indication is inspired by the CC1 King Cobra, but is visually different with
a longer diagonal track of minutes. The UR-111C also features world-firsts in watchmaking such as the
optical fibers, known as an image conduit, and which transports the indication of seconds, or the crown
integrated into the top of the case above and parallel to the winding stem.
