UR-202 WHITE GOLD Turbine Automatic #058
UR-202 WHITE GOLD Turbine Automatic #058
An icon of contemporary horology, the UR-202 Turbine Automatic. Launched in March of 2008, yet ten years later it still looks like it's been sent back in time from the future.
The design of the case shape and sapphire crystal matches that of the UR-210 Hammer Head, but inside there has been extensive revisions and refinement, the UR-202 introduces a major technological advancement, an innovative new winding system regulated by compressed air!
Using two miniature turbines URWERK has taken the traditional idea of using air friction and refined it to control the rate of automatic winding. The cutting-edge miniature turbines - miniature air compressors - which can be seen spinning on the back of the watch, are coupled with the winding rotor. According to the position of the selector lever, the turbines act as shock absorbers. During normal activity, they cushion sharp movements of the rotor. This reduces wear and increases the lifespan of the movement.
The display features URWERK’s patented Revolving Satellite Complication with telescopic minutes hands. Displaying time using telescopic minutes hands operating through the middle of three orbiting and revolving hours satellites. Day/Night and moon-phase are also indicated on the dial.
A fan favourite the UR-202’s have been a great addition to haute-horology collectors, and celebrities alike, with former German International footballer Michael Ballack, basketball superstar Michael Jordan and actor Jackie Chan all owning one.
Felix Baumgartner - "The UR-202 was after Opus 5 (we create for Harry Winston) the first nonconventional (tourbillon minrepeter..) complication over 100,000 US dollars.
The UR-202 satellites are not positioned at 90 degrees as it seems, they are at 85degrees, that's cool for the readability and the designer, but believe me, not for the watchmaker ;) The 202 was also the first time we introduced our self invented automatic turbine.
