URWERK’s UR-105M is inspired by the Middle Ages, an era of lances, legends, chivalrous conduct and noble deeds. An era when knights in shining armour would risk their lives for honour and glory, with only their faith and shield for protection. The UR-105M embodies their gallant valour in a titanium and steel arena, the satellite hours conquering time in an eternal jousting tournament.
The UR-105M features an impressive titanium body reinforced by steel armour. At the heart of its time display, four satellites slowly orbit. Each of these satellites is visible during their 60-minute journey along the minute scale. A circular PEEK (PolyEtherEthercetone) canopy with openings enhances the current hour. Once the hour has elapsed, the satellite-guided by a Geneva cross – rotates and continues around its orbit for another three hours before returning to the centre stage. Completing the indications, running seconds and power reserve are displayed laterally on the case band.
At the back of the UR-105M, URWERK’s signature ‘Control Board’ houses additional displays and functions: an ‘Oil Change’ indicator alerting when it is time for a service; a 42-hour power reserve indicator; plus the fine-tuning screw allowing adjustment of the rate.

If Batman could choose a watch… The Dark Knight was the beginning of the 105 model range. Progressing from the 103, with a stronger edgier case design. A watch that features a unique revolving hour disc display, and a power reserve on the case side and on the back for ease of use. This mean and moody piece really is something out of the comic books!
