A metallic bracelet on a URWERK…? What an abnormal thought you may think. Notwithstanding, in the event that you investigate the past models that the brand made, there was at that point one coming on such a bracelet, the UR-202 White Shark . This timepiece was a shocker and URWERK thinks about it. Close by the super chill and the-range UR-110 Eastwood , URWERK is presenting this year another watch, coming in a full metallic outfit, the URWERK UR-210S Full Metal Jacket.
The UR-210S is pure URWERK. It is made with all the DNA of the brand, all its detail, its bizarre showcase, its mechanical, chilly, specialized inclination that makes a dazzling outcome. We previously checked on this watch and disclosed to you the manner in which it works, while getting the opportunity to play with the dark covered release, the UR-210 AlTIN . This watch has two of the specificities that make a URWERK interesting: first the revolving satellite complication with meandering hour and retrograde moment hand and afterward the control board on the caseback.
The approach to peruse the time on the URWERK UR-210S is both very natural and actually highly complicated. As a wearer, you simply need to check the red-pointer on the lower part of the dial to check the minutes and, just upon that, inside the moment hand, the hour numeral is uncovered on a metallic 3D shape. Simple and useful, isn’t it? A kid could without much of a stretch utilize a URWERK. In any case, behind this straightforwardness, there is a part of horological pleasantness hidden.
As we advised you already while checking on the AlTIN release of the URWERK UR-210 , “There is in reality just one “hand” to demonstrate the time and this hand comprises the hour sign and point towards the real minutes. This is known as the satellite complication. In the photograph, it is focuses towards 20 minutes and the hour numeral is 3. The time is actually 03:20 o’clock. The hours are imprinted on a type of ‘solid shapes’ and there are 3 ‘arms’ with 3D squares. Each 3D shape has 4 sides with a numeral. The three arms with shapes pivots around a focal hub. Nonetheless, the shapes with numerals likewise pivot around their own axis.” On the highest point of that sits the minute hand, that actually is a retrograde hand that sudden spikes in demand for a 120° journey. It circled the hour solid shape during an hour and shows the time on a 0 to 60 scale situated on the lower part of the dial. When an hour has passed, the retrograde hour returns to its unique position. A sharp particular “click” flags the return of the moment hand to its beginning stage. In under 0.1 of a second the hand flies back to dock with the following hour satellite.
The other explicitness of the URWERK UR-210S (like each different versions of the UR-210 ) is the control board on the caseback: a winding selector permits you to moderate or stop the programmed winding rotor. Contingent upon your action, you can choose the twisting strength of the rotor in one of three positions – full, diminished & stop. This work is complemented by two sign on the dial-side: a force save pointer at 2 and a winding effectiveness marker at 10. The latter calculates the distinction between the burned-through and produced energy of the mainspring. When you are not dynamic enough, the pointer will push toward the red zone, implying that your watch devours more energy than the rotor gives to the origin. Then again, in the event that you are moving vivaciously, the pointer is going in the green zone, showing that the rotor gives more force than the watch burns-through. These two signs will assist you with choosing the correct situation of the winding selector.
For 2015, URWERK decided to re-issue the idea of a completely metallic watch, much the same as the UR-202 White Shark . The URWERK UR-210S Full Metal Jacket comes in a monochromatic look, with a full silver brushed tone. While the other URWERK look futuristic and dull, this metallic bracelet combined with a more splendid dial brings an extremely glowing and specialized look. The bracelet fits totally the state of the UR-210 and it even complements it. It appears to be that this bracelet was imagined simultaneously than the instance of the UR-210. It truly completes the plan. Both sportier and simultaneously more cautious, this is a very much a surprise.
Of course, don’t anticipate that the URWERK UR 210S should play in the lightweight classification. The impeccable bracelet is enormous and hefty. So does the titanium and tempered steel case. In any case, the watch is adjusted and feels incredibly comfortable while lashed. The neatness is eminent because of the more brilliant shading plan and the high difference between the moment hand, the satellites and the dial it-self.
The URWERK UR-210S Full Metal Jacket is a restricted release of 35 pieces and it is priced at 145.000 Swiss Francs. More subtleties on Urwerk.com .
