Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick

The Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick pairs ancient alloy bronze with high-tech titanium. This high-end example of avant-garde timepieces is full of originality and eye-catching charm. replica Urwerk UR 105 Watches


Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin. Additionally, bronze often contains other metals, including aluminum, manganese, nickel, and zinc. The material was discovered around 3700 BC. It has a variety of properties, including corrosion resistance, ductility, and hardness.

An unusual property of bronze is that it expands slightly when it changes from liquid to solid. This property makes it ideal for casting objects, as the alloy easily fills the mold to achieve the desired shape.

Bronze sculptures have always been used to commemorate the achievements of great and good people. Politicians, royalty and sports figures have all been depicted in bronze. The alloy has a long service life, making it an ideal material for lasting memorials. Bronze will forever be associated with institutions and traditions.

Urwerk, the avant-garde Swiss watch brand, is the antithesis of tradition. It doesn't stick to conventions, dares to dream, and bravely invents. While some of the best brands take the beaten path and climb the mountains, Urwerk has forged its own path to greatness. The company is a free-spirited, non-conformist company. So it seems fitting that the Geneva-based company calls its latest watch the Maverick. replica Porsche Design 1919 Watch

The Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick is a horological paradox. It combines the brand's new design language with the traditional example of bronze. The combination of two materials may sound strange, but the combination looks spectacular.

dial

Urwerk is synonymous with roaming hours display. Four satellites are located on a hollow carousel, each carrying three hourly values. The disc rotates to position the current hour on the minute track. When a satellite reaches "60," the responsibility for displaying the current time shifts to the next satellite. Each satellite works in conjunction with its counterpart to display the current time.

A key advantage of the Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick is that the dial window displays the current hour and minutes, displaying only basic information. To observe the rotating gait of the hidden satellite, the wearer simply pushes the slider on top of the grooved upper cover.

The power reserve indicator is located on the right side of the display. The status of the wind is displayed on an arc scale. The "digital seconds" display is located to the left of the curved dial aperture. The seconds are displayed on a hollow ring in 10-second intervals. Interestingly, the seconds display system is manufactured using “a photolithographic process in which each second mark is skeletonized and weighs less than a tenth of a gram”. Adjacent to the minute track is a red horseshoe-shaped hole that frames the running seconds hand. replica watch store

The dial area is clear and easy to read, eliminating redundant content and displaying important content. Judicious use of vivid yellow-green numerals enhances visual appeal and improves legibility.

case

Urwerk uses titanium for the case and bronze for the “bezel.” However, when the Geneva brand uses the term "bezel", it does not mean a strip of metal frame on the dial. The large upper surface of the case, including the aforementioned sliding lugs, is heavily decorated with bronze.

Typically, bronze cases look almost yellow, however, the case of the Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick sports a rich, dark hue. Like other bronze structures, this watch will age over time and develop a unique patina based on the wearer's lifestyle. Unlike most watches that remain in their final state in a production facility, the Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick will evolve after purchase and continue to evolve over time.

I've talked to many watch designers over the years and heard them describe the act of creating “tension.” When this term is used, they refer to the juxtaposition of two seemingly disparate elements. Urwerk created "Tension" by combining modern high-tech materials such as titanium with bronze, an ancient alloy dating back to 3700 BC. By combining these materials, the Swiss brand could have produced an abominable horological creation, but thankfully the two materials proved to be happy bedfellows, and the resulting beauty is stunning. luxury watches replica

The case is heavily grooved. The lid of the case has deep grooves, the edges of the case are decorated with vertical textures, and the back of the case is decorated with numerous wrinkles. These numerous cracks give the case a richer appearance.

Measuring 39.5mm x 53mm x 17.8mm (width x length x height), the Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick has generous proportions that lend it an imposing presence on the wrist. However, despite its size, this watch is very comfortable to wear. One of the reasons for this ergonomic combination has to do with the crown mounted at 12 o'clock. It features raised grooves positioned away from the wrist so it won't scratch the arm or restrict free movement. Its location is very logical.

The Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick comes with the brand's Caliber UR 5.03. This automatic movement features an innovative winding system controlled by two turbines. A lever mounted on the caseback allows the wearer to select "FULL", "RED" (for reduction) and "STOP" to influence the behavior of the winding rotor. In the "FULL" setting, slight movements of the wrist cause the oscillating weight to rotate. When set to red, the turbine dampens the movement of the winding rotor, preventing over-tensioning of the mainspring. When "Stop" is selected, the oscillating weight is detached and the watch can be wound by simply turning the crown. Jacob and Co. Bugatti Chiron

At the heart of the Urwerk paradigm, adjacent to innovation, is the idea of continuous improvement. In previous models, the satellite was mounted on a Maltese cross and held in place by an orbital cross. Felix Baumgartner, chief watchmaker and co-founder of Urwerk, said: “We examined the design and found ways to improve it. You can feel the results when you set the time – no friction, no clicks, just the waltz of satellites .Our work is hidden in the gear transmission process.

The Geneva cross is made of beryllium bronze, the skeletonized dial is made of aluminum, while the dial and triple base plate are made of ARCAP, a cutting-edge non-magnetic alloy. Although Urwerk makes no secret of its passion for avant-garde aesthetics, it does not shy away from traditional watchmaking craftsmanship. Round textures, sanding and brushing abound. The screw heads are chamfered, further reflecting the company's dedication to perfection.

The frequency of the balance is 28,800 VpH (4Hz) and the movement contains 52 jewels. Caliber UR 5.03 has a power reserve of 52 hours.

Martin Frei, chief designer and co-founder of Urwerk, has repeatedly experimented with contrasting finishes to give them a striking aesthetic. In 2018, Frei blended the UR-105's new shape with Art Deco influences to create the stunning Urwerk UR-105 CT Streamliner.

In this case, the Zurich-based design genius combined the UR-105's avant-garde outer shell and wrapped it in titanium and bronze. The properties of this ancient alloy may seem diametrically opposed to those of cutting-edge titanium, but this mixture of materials performs exceptionally well.

Before seeing the Urwerk UR-105 CT Maverick, I would never have imagined that the Swiss brand would use bronze to partially encase one of its futuristic watches. However, Baumgartner and Frey do possess this rare creative vision. In fact, bronze alloys seem an apt metaphor for a dynamic pairing that is always evolving while providing an admirable future legacy for others. replica Franck Muller Watches
