In this limited edition “Blue Planet”, the UR-100V collection from Urwerk wanted to add an astrophysical dimension.
In fact, under its large observation dome, after having finished indicating the minute in the sector graduated from 0 to 60, the yellow and green needle disappears to reappear as a kilometer counter!
Indeed, at 9 o’clock, through a fine loophole, it indicates the rotation of 555.55 kilometers made by the Earth every 20 minutes at the level of the Equator. At 3 o’clock, the UR 12.02 caliber displays the Earth’s revolution around the Sun, i.e. 35,742 kilometers every 20 minutes.
To combine content and form, calculation and imagery, theory and observation of the universe, the UR-100V is adorned in blue: blue for the sandblasted steel case (PVD), blue for the movement, blue rotary carousel. A blue evocative of our planet Earth.
