A new vision of the time.
The watchmaking house URWERK began from the creative inspiration of Felix Baumgartner, one of the new leaders in Swiss watch-making already known by collectors for his collaborations with the large maisons (OPUS IV by Harry Winston).
The Urwerk 103.07 model breaks the conventions of measuring time and adds a new chapter to the history of watchmaking, reinventing the reading of the time.
Its originality is unquestioned. The four satellites act as supports for the display of the hours, alternatively dispensing with the graduated line of the minutes, allowing reading both in analogue and digital time. Even more, it is a visual revolution; this project legitimizes the position of Urwerk in the vanguard of the world of High Watchmaking
To hold such an exceptional movement, it was necessary to have an equally innovative case. Martin Frei, the designer and co-founder of the brand, created a totally innovative aesthetic for the model in the world of watchmaking. Beginning from a purified geometric base– square and circle – he designed an asymmetrical and three-dimensional case.
Producing and working with such a case is truly a business in itself: this is one of the most complex cases existing, and its execution “took nearly three years of development, followed by two years of testing.” and the result that went beyond our expectations!” concludes an enthusiastic Felix Baumgartner.
