A HIGH COMPLICATED MOVEMENT UNDER THE T-REX SKIN !
This timepiece is part of our top 5 of 2016! Why? because URWERK introduced a perfect mix between a high complicated mechanical movement and an amazing aesthetic.
The top case is made of a hand-patinated bronze. Combined to an original window (for the time), it really feels like a T-rex is looking at you.
The bronze material changes through time and in a way, it makes the acquisition more personal. We also notice the shape of the crown (at 12 o’clock) fitting perfectly the concept.
Under the « T-rex skin » an amazing movement is composed of 4 circles with 3 numbers each. They turn on themselves like satellites. All of them are connected on a plateform and if you want to see their movement, click on this link: UR-105TA CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
The UR-105 T-Rex is an automatic or self winding caliber with 2 adjustables turbines.
3 positions are available on the back: FULL - RED. - STOP
It affects the barrel (or energy) of the timepiece as your own body mouvement is received differently. You can even stop the winding mechanism and switch it as a manual winding caliber.
A true piece of Art! Congratulations, URWERK !
