What are the shadows at the far end of the visible spectrum that the human eye perceives? Violet of course! In fact, anything but purple is outside the color spectrum. This is the ultimate shade, the shade Urwerk has chosen for its UR-100V UltraViolet, which uses the 100-series code.replica luxury watches
Magnificent shadows at the far end of the visible spectrum perceptible to the human eye. In fact, anything but purple is outside the color spectrum. In a way, purple is the ultimate hue. Warrior, outsider, lunatic. Hero or villain? It's ok. If you need to make yourself heard, do it in violet!
Martin Frei on colors that are so special to him: "I love the fact that there are far more colors than we can perceive. The color spectrum that our eyes see ranges from red to purple. Except for that shade, color Becomes a waveform that our eyes can no longer detect, namely UV light. I am fascinated by the idea of creating a watch that celebrates this frontier, this tipping point, this transition from the perceptible to the imperceptible. The UR-100V UltraViolet It's this kind of exploration of the limits. Our UltraViolet conveys something mysterious, it's a hue that lies on the boundary of a dimension we call color."high quality replica watches
The UR-100V UltraViolet comes with a rubber strap with a 100 series code. On the UR-100V, the satellite hour and minute display is complemented by new information. Once the 60th minute is reached, the minute hand disappears and reappears as a kilometer counter. It depicts every 20 minutes that every inhabitant of the planet travels 555 kilometers. This is actually the average rotation speed of the Earth (rotation distance) calculated at the equator. The exact opposite is that the earth revolves around the sun (orbital distance), which is 35,740 kilometers every 20 minutes. On the surface of the UR-100V, hours and kilometers thus have the same status, the same value scale. The units are lit in incandescent blue for hours at night and brilliant green for kilometers.
Felix Baumgartner, master watchmaker and co-founder of Urwerk, said: “The inspiration for this creation came from a gift from my father Geri Baumgartner, a famous restorer of antique clocks. This is a clock made by Gustave Sandoz for the 1893 World’s Fair, and its special The peculiarity is that it does not show the hour, but rather the distance the Earth is rotating at the equator."replica watches for sale
Beating under the UR-100V's dome is the new Urwerk Calibre 12.02 with a three-satellite time display. “The change in caliber for this version is reflected in the redesign of the central carousel. The hour markers are closer to the minute scale, allowing for a more intuitive and smooth reading of the time,” explains Felix Baumgartner. This turntable is forged from aluminum, then ground and shot peened after anodizing. Each satellite screw is satin-finished in a circular pattern. The satellites rest on a polished and ruthenium-treated brass turntable. The structure covering the hour indications is made of frosted and sandblasted aluminium. The self-winding of the UR-100V is controlled by a two-way rotor regulated by Windfänger propellers.
The aesthetics of the UR-100V enclosure are a throwback fun. It does remind Urwerk loyalists of the aesthetics characteristic of the indie brand's first models: "We took certain aesthetic elements from our first buildings and deconstructed our approach. For example, we The steel dome of the historic model is reproduced here through the transparency of the sapphire crystal. The roughness of the titanium and steel case underscores its perfection. As someone who constantly questions the rules of symmetry, I have played with proportions to challenge the eye, ” concludes Martin Frei.cheap watches for sale
