To the third dimension and beyond
UR-112 Aggregat is the newest member of the URWERK special project series, a laboratory that provides watch freedom and encourages stupidity. URWERK co-founder and watchmaker Felix Baumgartner and art director and designer Martin Frei started this new adventure from a blank page. There is also a sketchbook full of ideas. UR-112 Aggregat is inspired by dreams of new mechanical challenges. Technicality is center stage. The beauty of UR-112 lies in the complexity of its gears and almost fanatical assembly accuracy. UR-112 Aggregat heralds a masterpiece in the watchmaking world.
Aggregat is a summary of 25.5 grams of distillation technology, providing a fully digital time display from a few hours to a few seconds. For watchmakers who bet on micrometers, this is a double or no challenge.
Starting from the hours and minutes, each is displayed on triangular prisms running under transparent cylinders. These cylinders look like floating mechanisms that can be appreciated through crystals. fake watches for sale
On the left, the digital hour is displayed. Each of the 12 numbers is engraved with Super-LumiNova luminous material. The transcription of the time adopts the form of symbol display, which is rapidly switched to the timing rhythm. On the right, the same system displays the minutes. Minutes get rid of the singular pressure, but jump in increments of 5 minutes.
The operation of the jumping hour display is driven by the progress of the minute. At the 60th minute, release the force accumulated in the last 3600 seconds and change the time to the next hour.
But the main source of all these powers is rooted in the basic movement relative to this but Thai structure. A slender rod connects the main body and head of UR-112. This is the cardan shaft, the central part that is vital to the mechanism. A complex set of gears, a series of gears, enables the shaft to transmit all the energy required. This is despite a 90° shift. This drive shaft with double gears-one at each end-is perpendicular to the horizontal time indication.
“We named this watch Aggregat because UR-112 combines different elements. We use a single energy source to power all the displays and mechanisms of this UR-112. This force is carefully distributed, and some It is even “recycled”, so from the digital seconds on the top of the dial to the dragged minutes and the opposite extreme jumping hours, each display receives exactly the energy it needs without wasting,” explains Felix Baumgartner.
The movement of the UR-112 is housed in a Hunter’s case with a hinged titanium protective cover. Press the buttons on both sides of the watch case to unlock the lid and pop up, revealing the carefully designed digital seconds hand. Next to the only analog display of the 48-hour power reserve indicator UR-112, it is etched on a tiny silicon wafer disc, and tiny numbers are arranged under a magnifying glass.
This first edition of UR-112 Aggregat is available in a limited edition with a matte finish. It has a plain color, and the black body complements the lid of the same color. Beautiful and elegant.
“The inspiration for this UR-112 is many and scattered,” Martin Frei said. “The Bugatti Atlantique’s grille is the most obvious. A great car with a contrasting spine that emphasizes absolute symmetry. Some Middle Eastern influences are also vivid in my mind. The memories, smells and experiences of traveling nourish me. The imagination is present in all my creations. Discovered through subtle contact.”
Seduced by the nobility of the exquisite body of UR-112 Aggregat, it contains the most beautiful secrets.
