At The Geneva Watch Days 2023, Urwerk has introduced a captivating launch – The UR-100V Stardust! A timepiece that goes beyond the ordinary. Let’s dive into the enchanting world of twinkling stars and distant constellations that are brought to life in this horological masterpiece.
Crafted in steel, the case of the watch is snow set with 400 diamonds (VVS1, Color D) totalling almost 1.90 carats of pure carbon. The watch is reminiscent of the starry heavens. These 400 diamonds are meticulously selected from eight different formats and adorn the flamboyant case of the UR-100V Stardust. The minute scale beneath the crystal globe is studded with 36 diamonds, while 24 diamonds gracefully adorn the crown. Another 22 diamonds are set meticulously into the steel pin buckle.
Adding to the striking beauty of the watch, the hours and minutes hands are painted in Super-LumiNova® and accentuated by 36 brilliant-cut diamonds. The watch also features two recesses on the flanks of its satellite carrier. One of which is the kilometre counter that represents the distance travelled by Earth on its axis in 20 minutes (554 kilometres). The second one shows the distance travelled by the Earth around the Sun during the same period (35,750 kilometres). The watch has a 48-hour power reserve. This stunning work of art comes with a fabric strap in “Baltimore blue”.
This new launch will not only sparkle brilliantly on the wrist but will also ignite a radiating shine in one’s eyes and is limited to just 10 pieces a year.
