Most watches look the same, but not the Urwerk UR-105M.
Instead of two hands rotating in a circle of numbers, the UR-105M has three orbiting satellites that show the hour. Minutes are displayed at the bottom of the device, while running seconds and a power reserve appear on the side of the watch.
Made from titanium, steel, and sapphire crystals, this watch is ensconced in an armor-like case. “This shield protects the mechanism (the heart of the watch) from the outside world’s aggressions,” says co-founder Martin Frei. For a $66,000 price tag, we say the watch better be indestructible.
The UR-105M comes in two color schemes, Dark Knight and Iron Knight.
