Urwerk UR-100V Lightspeed

Crafted from advanced materials and featuring a unique satellite display mechanism, this timepiece invites wearers to traverse the solar system from their wrist. Share

Urwerk’s UR-100V “Lightspeed” is a horological masterpiece that transcends the mere telling of time, offering its wearer a cosmic journey on their wrist. This innovative timepiece draws its inspiration from the vastness of space, manifesting as a personal planetarium that tracks the journey of light from the Sun to the planets within our solar system. The watch showcases Urwerk’s pioneering satellite time-display mechanism, a signature of the brand that eschews traditional hands for a more dynamic representation of time through moving satellites​.

Crafted with a black carbon case and adorned with a 54-layer ThinPly, the UR-100V “Lightspeed” measures 43mm in width, 51.73mm in length, and 14.55mm in thickness, ensuring a presence on the wrist that is both substantial and refined. This avant-garde casing is complemented by a DLC-treated titanium case back, offering a glimpse into the intricate workings of the UR 12.02 movement through the sapphire crystal. The movement itself is a marvel, governed by a Windfänger airscrew and boasting a 48-hour power reserve, demonstrating Urwerk’s commitment to combining technical innovation with artistic expression​.

This informs the wearer about our solar system and serves as a reminder of our place within the vast expanse of the universe. The hours and minutes are indicated on rotating satellites, with a red arrow-tipped minutes hand gliding along a 120-degree arched track, ensuring legibility is maintained alongside the watch’s artistic ambitions​.
