UR-105 M IRON KNIGHT LIMITED TO 77 PIECES
In April 2014, the Iron knight ready to conquer time was released.
Inspired by the Middle Ages, an age of era of lances, legends, chivalrous conduct and noble deeds. An era when knights in shining armour would risk their lives for honour and glory, with only their faith and shield for protection.
The UR-105 M Iron Knight proudly wears a shield of steel (an alloy of iron and carbon) and a body of titanium, protecting the satellite complication.
Each of these satellites is visible during their 60-minute journey along the minute scale. A circular PEEK (PolyEtherEthercetone) canopy with openings enhances the current hour. Once the hour has elapsed, the satellite-guided by a Geneva cross –rotates and continues around its orbit for another three hours before returning to the centre stage.
The case side laterally indicates running seconds and the power reserve. flip the Iron Knight over and you will find URWERK'S signature ‘Control Board’ housing additional displays and functions: an ‘Oil Change’ indicator alerting when it is time for service; 42-hour power reserve indicator; plus the fine-tuning screw allowing adjustment of the rate.
Felix Baumgartner - "The 105M Iron is a complex three-dimensional construction. The case with its four sapphires and two sapphire loops is proof of our love to motivate the interaction between the human and the watch.
Its control board enables you to have information on service and power-reserve and on top of that, you can actively fine tune the precision of the movement - 100% Urwerk!"
Martin Frei - “Inspired by a Medieval knights armour, the UR-105M Iron is protected by its iron shield. I had read a portrait about the blacksmith Johann Schmidberger from Molln in Steyrmark Austria. Even today, he forges by hand the iron armour of the papal guard, just as it was done in the Middle Ages. Together with Felix, we went to visit the renowned blacksmith in Molln. Standing in his ancient smithy and watching the gigantic Schmidberger at work like Hephaestus. Seeing the iron glow in the fire, the smith's hammer forge it into the right shape on the anvil, has left a lasting impression on me. Iron is a perfect and essential material from which the knight's armour and also the first clocks, the tower clocks for the churches were forged. The case of the UR-105M, its shield, is inspired by this impressive encounter with Johann Schmidberger."
