The Urwerk UR-120 is a black cosmic creation that fuses advanced technology, celestial inspiration, and a touch of science fiction, captivating horological enthusiasts across the galaxies. Let’s dive into the UR-120 Space Black!
This UR-120 is a beautiful demonstration of ergonomic ingenuity, combining form and function in perfect harmony with its 44 x 47 x 15.8mm (L x W x H) dimensions. With the upper part of the case seamlessly smooth, and devoid of any screws, the UR-120 features a flawless silhouette.
To tell time, the UR-120 features a new revolving satellite complication: analog minutes and a never-seen-before split-open digital hour satellite mounted on planetary gears. This particular hour satellite morphs into the form of a V-shaped open hand. This time indication rotates on its own axis, split open to unveil its secrets smoothly.
Powered by the caliber UR-20.01, the UR-120 harnesses the energy of the stars within its intricate mechanism. The central carousel, equipped with three arms, gracefully carries the satellites that bear the hour markers on all four sides. As the satellite traverses the minute track, it reaches the left part of the case, setting in motion a sequence of movements. The satellite splits open, revealing two rectangular studs. They take on a V-shape, reminiscent of the Vulcan salute. Once separated, both studs spin on their own axis and shut, all in order to display the new hour unit.
There is a triple revolution taking place under the hood of this spacecraft: the satellite-bearing carousel spins on a central axis, each satellite counter-spins in order to remain upright and therefore readable and each stud spins on its own axis.
