The new 100V line, dedicated to perceptions of time through the ages and cultures, has been named Time and Culture.

The first stop in the 100V Time and Culture line takes us to the lands of Central America, around the year 1479. The pediment of this timepiece features the motifs of the “Sun Stone,” one of the most emblematic works of Aztec art, now preserved in the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City. This monolith is a sculpted disc approximately 3.6 meters in diameter. Imposing. Massive. This masterful work refers to the Aztec calendar, with the third circle representing the 20 days of the month, the fourth the 260 days of the year. This pattern is therefore repeated on the copper-colored dome of the UR-100V Time and Culture I.

On this UR-100V from the Time and Culture line, a new piece of information is added to the hours and minutes display. Once the 60th minute has passed, the minutes hand disappears and reappears as a kilometer counter. It illustrates the 524.89 kilometers covered every 20 minutes by any person located in Mexico. This is the average speed of the Earth's rotation calculated at Mexico City. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the Earth's revolution around the sun is displayed, i.e. 35,742 kilometers per 20 minutes. On the face of the UR-100V, hours and kilometers thus share the same status, the same scale of value. These units are lit up in incandescent blue when reading the hours.
