Missed our 20th birthday celebrations? Now you can have a second chance!
In 2017 we turned 20 and to celebrate we launched the UR-T8. Our biggest most bad-ass watch yet featuring the largest and most elaborate satellite complication we have made to date. Our trademark wandering-hour indication is the most intuitive way of telling the time, the 12 hours in groups of four on a three-armed carousel successively sweep across the scale of 60 minutes to show the time both digitally and analogically. with each arm supporting a satellite carousel bearing the four-hour numerals. A complex planetary gearing transforms a tangle of wheels, screws and jewel bearings into a meticulously orchestrated ballet.
Another technical feature unique to URWERK is the pneumatic control of the self-winding system. A gilded spinning vane connected to the winding rotor absorbs any sudden and violent movements of the rotor without compromising its winding efficiency.
What does the T8 stand for? Transformable.
A series of precise actions unlock the case from its cradle, flips it over (in a figure of 8) and returns it with a satisfying click to protect the time beneath a titanium shield. With just a Squeeze of the two buttons on the side of the case to release it, lift it vertically, rotate it 180° about its axis and click it back into its cradle.
Felix Baumgartner - "Our UR-T8 is a milestone in the story of URWERK. Our first 20 years were dominated by the wandering hour; the rest of the story has yet to be written for there are so many areas we have still to explore. It’s now the time to turn a page and we want to do it with style.”
Martin Frei - "For me a wristwatch is an object that invites interaction, appealing to your visual as well as to your tactile senses. You don’t just wear your UR-T8, you engage with it. Our UR-T8, of course, recalls the Reverso watches, we have deconstructed the concept to create a genuine URWERK model. The UR-T8 features all the characteristics that we have made our own: the huge crown, the organically shaped sapphire crystal glass, the textured case that invites your touch, a strong personality and a recognisable visual signature.”
Condition Rating UR-1: As new, no or very few signs of wear, the movement is serviced and in working condition.
