Produced in a limited run of just 22 pieces, URWERK’s newest timepiece, the incredible UR-105 T-Rex looks like it just arrived to Earth from a planet far, far away from us. It’s a stunning measurement instrument which could become a symbol for universal beauty and extraordinary manifestation of time.
Housed in a textured pebble-shaped case, the satellite hours of the UR-105 T-Rex are protected only by a bronze suit of armor. The new UR-105 has been nicknamed after its atypical case, featuring a ribbed pattern evoking the scales of certain reptiles, that is surprisingly quite soft to touch.
Each of the watches from this limited edition is treated as one-of-a-kind; decorated, beadblasted, micro-sandblasted, purified and then oxidized in a way that every watch will have its own appeal and vibe.
Technically speaking, the UR-105 T-Rex is a satellite hours watch, with four satellites bearing three hour numerals, successively parading past the minute rail. A cover made of PEEK conceals non-relevant satellites, while showing off a superb guilloché pattern.
The case was hand-patinated bronze, the caseback in black PVD titanium, with the sapphire crystal adding to the list of impressive features. The back of the 105 T-Rex actually shows the turbines, which regulate the winding of the watch – both automatic and manual.
The watch will handle 30 meters of water, while movement is provided by the Swiss manual-wind URWERK in-house caliber 5.02 – 52 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 48 hours. There’s no word on pricing yet, but you can only guess a masterpiece like this won’t come cheap.
