jacob & co astronomia tourbillon Urwerk’s UR-111C - the brand’s latest timepiece unveiled last week - is a direct descendant of the UR-CC1 King Cobra from 2009 (which itself was inspired by a Patek Philippe prototype created by Louis Cottier and Gilbert Albert in 1959), but it differs in a number of ways. By borrowing the retrograde linear display from the UR-CC1, Urwerk has once again eschewed its recognizable wandering indicator in favor of a brand new time-telling system that involves optical fiber, dual minute indicators, and a roller set smack dab in the middle of the watch that functions as its crown.

Intended to function as an avant-garde “drivers” watch, the hour and pair of minute indicators are located on the front side. Hours are displayed digitally on a truncated cone on the left side; a skeletonized helix/cylinder displays the minutes linearly and stretches diagonally across the face of the watch; the second minute display is located to the right on its own truncated crown and shows the time digitally for enhanced precision; and the seconds are told in five-second intervals via two rotating plates set deep within the movement and brought to the face of the watch via an image conduit constructed of optical fibers. ulysse nardin freak

The seconds opening is also a horological first. The two rotating discs weigh only 0.0018 grams and were constructed through miniature lacework via the LIGA process. Through the pioneering use of optical fibers borrowed from medical engineering, the discs - which are set deep within the movement - appear flush with the crystal. It’s unlike any magnifying glass or loupe system that we’ve seen applied on a wristwatch before and could see future application from Urwerk and others.A platinum watch with a black PVD coating is a true rarity in the watch world - I can’t, offhand, recall ever seeing one previously - which makes the Black Platinum more exclusive and luxurious than of all the UR-210 models that preceded it. The heavy weight of the watch’s unusually shaped, 53.6 mm x 43.8 mm case was an intriguing surprise when I first picked it up, and its black-with-red-highlights aesthetic is certainly eye-catching, but there are even more surprises inside the case and behind the sapphire crystal. The Black Platinum combines the revolving-satellite time display emblematic of the UR-210 collection with an unconventional flyback minutes device.

How to indicate digital numbers? You go for a circle around, or you go for a line. And that’s a very simple, logical way. So, we somehow wanted to continue doing that with hours here, then the linear minutes. It’s not [supposed] to let you know the precise minute, just to give you a feeling of the hour, the position in the growing, long hour. And you have the setting precision of each minute [on the right side]. So, it’s really a driver’s watch, because you absolutely have to read this watch from the side. Looking straight down, you’ll be in trouble. It’s not convenient. You really have to look from the side. hublot mp-05 laferrari

reputable replica watch sites c The watch’s unconventional timekeeping system (a hallmark of the Urwerk brand) doesn’t reach quite as far back into prehistoric times for its inspiration as does its case, but it does pay tribute to a system developed in the second millennium B.C. by the ancient Sumerians, who told time by shadows cast by the sun as it played across giant monuments between rising and setting. Four satellites, each with three hour numerals, rotate on a hidden carousel and follow a “minute rail” along the bottom. Each hour numeral has a minute pointer that indicates the proper minute on the rail and travels, like the sun, in an east to west direction.

When an hour concludes and another one begins, a new satellite with hour numeral emerges from concealment, beneath a cover made of a high-tech material called PEEK (polyetheretherketone) and begins a new journey across the minute rail.The movement’s carousel and triple mainplates are made of ARCAP; the hour satellites in beryllium bronze. It has a 48-hour power reserve and a 28,800-vph (4 Hz) frequency and boasts surface finishes that include circular graining, bead-blasting, satin finishing, and beveled screw heads. The case measures 39.5 by 53 mm in diameter and 16.8 thick and is water-resistant to 30 meters. cheapest patek philippe

Until now, no one has developed a production wristwatch with true retrograde linear displays. Urwerk’s UR‐CC1 achieves this feat. It has two horizontal indications displayed by two retrograde cylinders: one for the (jumping) hours, the other for the minutes. The watch is the result of more than three years of research, development and testing to ensure that the rotation and instant fly‐back of the large hour and minute cylinders is achieved without compromising accurate timekeeping.

A vertical triple‐cam operating a toothed rack (visible through a window in the side of the case - see image below) rotates the minute cylinder. From zero to 60 minutes, the minute cylinder rotates through 300°. On arriving at the 60‐minute mark, the cylinder reverses back to its original position in 1/10th of a second thanks to an extra‐flat linear spring. The retrograde movement of the minute cylinder triggers the hour cylinder to advance (jump) one complete hour.Only Watch is the charity auction to benefit research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy held in Monaco on September 22 under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II. Fascinated by universal legends, Jean-Vincent did not take long to decide on the theme for this piece. In recognition of all those engaged in the battle to save children from muscular dystrophy, the UR-103 bears the quintessential symbol of resistance and resilience: a phoenix rising from the flames. richard mille bubba watson

At the heart of this system is a central central hub, turning on ruby bearings, that ensures that the mechanism remains stable. It uses a cylindrical spring of the type used in marine chronometers along the shaft to accumulates the power for the retrograde action. This minutes hand has uncommon dimensions, machined to the hundredth of a millimeter and measuring 22.29 mm long, 8.03 mm wide 7.3 mm high and weighs only 0.302 grams. The main part of the hand is in aluminum, while its counterweight is made of brass. A star-shaped, double coaxial cam governs the retrograde action; its gearing and then its rotation determine the trajectory of the minutes hand.
