Fitted with a rubber strap, the UR-100V UltraViolet picks up the codes of the 100 family. On the UR-100V, the satellite hours and minutes display are complemented by new information.
Once the 60th minute has been reached, the minutes hand vanishes and reappears as a kilometre counter. It illustrates the 555 kilometres travelled every 20 minutes by every inhabitant of Planet Earth. This is in fact the average speed of rotation of the Earth calculated at the Equator (rotational distance).
Appearing exactly opposite is the Earth’s revolution around the sun (orbital distance), i.e. 35,740 kilometres per 20 minutes. On the face of the UR-100V, hours and kilometres thus share the same status, the same scale of value. These units are lit up at night in incandescent blue for the hours and in flamboyant green for the kilometres.
Beating beneath the dome of the UR-100V is the new URWERK Calibre 12.02 with its three-satellite time display.
The aesthetics of the UR-100V’s case is a regressive pleasure. It will indeed remind the URWERK faithful of the aesthetics characterising the first models from the independent brand:
The UR-100V UltraViolet retails for SGD 86,000 with tax.
