The avante-garde watch manufacturer Urwerk has created a pocket watch forthe new millennium ………..quite literally in fact, this complicated timepiece actually tracks a millennia. The Urwerk UR-1001 Zeit Device pushes the boundaries of time keeping to the next level with the ability to mark the passage of time in seconds, minutes, hours, days and nights, months, years, centuries (100 years), and a millennia (1000 years).
This is an unprecedented feat in watch making and represents a complication the like of which has never been seen. Its mechanical movement and indicators are unmistakably Uwerk, with multiple satellite complications and a retrograde minute indicator. The UR-1001 even includes an oil change indicator to inform you when the timepiece needs service.
The finish of the Zeit device is a stealthy looking stainless steel case coated in aluminum titanium nitride, an industrial surface treatment used to reduce the wear of machine cutting tools, and keeps the UR-1001 looking good and free from oxidation. Details abound on this Urwerk, the semi matte surfaces and dials receiving decoration in the form of engraving and diamond-cut bezels, contrasted by white Super-LumiNova for easy reading day or night.
The Urwerk UR-1001 Zeit Device is truly a horological showpiece like no other and will only be produced in extremely limited quantities. Visit the Urwerk UR-1001 site for more info on obtaining one of these beautifully built watches for yourself.
