Urwerk UR-220 " Project Falcon"
A classic exhibit type in stylish new presentation.
Over the summer, the the making of watch duo of Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner shown the final version of the Urwerk UR-210 watch, a classic within contemporary independent watch layout that has become my most linked reference since its launch inside 2012. with their company. Not too long ago, they announced the beneficiary to the UR-210 in the form of the modern UR-220, codenamed " Venture Falcon". In addition to its amazing looks, the UR-220 features some new features, including the go back of other features, and a glimpse into the up coming chapter in the UR-200 line.
In terms of elements, the UR-220 case characteristics 81 layers of ultra-thin, high-resistance 150-gram CTP and also carbon, compressed into a hard resin. The fact that it consists of various layers is obvious when you look closely at the sloping top of the case. (CTP is short for Carbon Thin Ply; we now have seen this material used in typically the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Small Repeater as well). The actual UR-220 strap is made of silicone, a first for Urwerk. Nevertheless it's not just any rubberize strap. For the first rubberized strap, Urwerk used actually calls the Vulcarboné course of action, which Urwerk says provides it with a velvety touch.
Almost all obviously, the UR-220 employs the familiar planetary or even wandering time system. Not like the UR-210 model, nonetheless the movement here is hand-wound rather than self-winding.
Most of us tend to associate this particular iconic three-arm display while using Urwerk. Hours are viewable on three blocks placed on three arms. The present section includes a 120-degree arch along which the arm goes, picking up retrograde minutes, and since they go, they snap back in the hours. The screen looks a little complicated to start with, but it's actually quite perceptive. It's also very sharp, due to the high contrast between the natural numerals and minute keep tabs on and the carousel's black composition.
Every single swivel arm has a wedge with numbers corresponding on the hours on its a number of sides. I should say that really the only other dial side show is the power reserve indicator or perhaps indicator. There are two of these people, located in the upper-left along with upper-right corners of the exhibit. Each of them tracks a continuous 24-hour cycle, so when the first is loaded or emptied, the second gets control for a total power reserve involving 48 hours. Splitting the energy reserve between the two computer monitors is no easy task: it will require about 83 additional areas.
On the back side of the UR-220 we see often the return of the oil transform indicator, a display long witnessed in Urwerk's UR-110 model. Within the guise of the UR-220, this specific indicator has received some changes. When the owner has a brand-new UR-220, he or she will spot the pins on the back of this timepiece. Pulling the pin will result in the oil change indication to start counting the several weeks in which the watch is lively. After 39 months, the actual UR-220 should be sent for maintenance, after which the watchmakers with Urwerk reset the arms to zero and reinstall the pins, repeating the task.
Looking at the UR-220, one can see that it is very exactly like the recently retired UR-210. The particular CTP carbon fiber case rapid Urwerk's first of its variety - uses a hand-wound activity and a titanium caseback, the UR-220 a lightweight watch that is certainly relatively stylish by Urwerk standards watch. The new layer material also gives the UR-220 a wonderfully textured look. I think it was a great look, nevertheless I was surprised that Urwerk hadn't made a graphite shell before, so I reconfirmed this with the company's US ALL office. The rubber secure has a great textured/layered appearance that goes well with the event and is another surprising initial.
But to us, the oil change signal with removable pin is among the most coolest element in the new UR-220. Thoughtful creations like this, is found throughout Urwerk's watches, and i believe it's most appealing to each of our " teenage brain", fault us who would happily make a Rube Goldberg machine for you to entertain or fascinate.
