Here is one of the latest creations to emerge from the URWERK atelier. The new URWERK UR-210Y “Black Hawk” tells the time through a satellite complication display with wandering hour and retrograde minute indicators.
On the dial, there are two retrograde indicators, one at 1 o’clock – the traditional power reserve indicator – and another at 11 o’clock. The latter indicates how much power the watch has consumed over the last two hours.
The case is made of high-tech titanium and AlTiN-treated steel, which increases the resistance to scratches and acids. The URWERK UR-210Y Black Hawk comes equipped with a black fabric strap which goes very well together with the rest of the watch.
The case back offers a limited view of the URWERK Caliber UR-7.10 fitted with 51 jewels, mono-metallic balance, spring flat balance, turbine equipped self-winding mechanism and which provides a power reserve of 39 hours. The winding efficiency indicator – a world-first – lets you see if you are active enough to “refuel” the watch with energy via the automatic winding rotor, or if the watch is running on stored energy. It can also let you change the winding efficiency of the rotor so that it matches your daily rhythm, and it can even let you switch to manual winding mode. The watch is waterresistant to a depth of 30 meters.
The UR-210Y “Black Hawk” is available in a limited edition of 75 pieces in titanium and AlTiN-treated steel. Price $175,000 USD. For more info visit: urwerk.com
