Urwerk UR-210 AITiN Watch

Urwerk UR-210 AITiN Watch
Urwerk makes the most of the latest technical breakthroughs in offering new developments – starting with the AlTiN alloy from which the caseband is made – a group of hard coatings composed of Aluminium, Titanium and Nitride. But the UR-210 is above all revolutionary because of its device located at 11 o’clock – an indicator of the winding efficiency during the last two hours of wear. It is thus up to the owner to handle its power reserve: by setting the winding regulator (on the caseback) to “Full” so that the rotor converts each gesture into pure energy; to “Reduced” if the winding is too intense; or to “Stop” for manual winding. Back on the front side, the satellite complication with retrograde minutes is as original and visually amazing as ever. The star of this show on volumes and high-tech bodywork is the outsized minutes hand forming a fascinating frame for the hour satellites.
