Outrageous as Urwerk’s designs are, its signature “satellite” hours have always remained an easily recognisable hallmark. With the UR-111C, however, those wandering hours have wandered right off the watch and are replaced by completely new indications. At the bottom of the watch, there are two conical displays, with jumping hours on the left cone and running minutes on the right. In the middle is another minutes display, this time with a retrograde function, because, why not? At the top is the seconds display which, despite its resemblance to a magnifying glass, actually uses a cluster of optical fibres that acts as a conduit between the numerals and the sapphire crystal they’re projected through. The winding crown is a roller in the middle of the watch, while a lever that pops out on the right side of the case takes care of time-setting.
