Urwerk’s Prehistoric Timepiece

The manufacture looks (way) back for its latest limited edition.

Watchmakers are known to draw inspiration from the past, however, Urwerk’s latest takes it that one step further.

For the second time, Urwerk has released a limited edition watch with prehistoric inspiration. The Urwerk UR-100V T-Rex sees a unique scaley case texture – a nod to the famed dinosaur – decorate one of the manufacture’s most signature shapes. 

The 41mm timepiece sees a unique material and finishing with the main body of the case made from bronze, however when combined with a bespoke alloy gives a patina finish. The case is then milled and engraved – giving it the diamond clous de Paris pattern – for a particularly scaley look.

Further, Urwerk then sandblasts the case and subject it to a burnishing process that leads to a unique finish.

Beneath the sapphire crystal, the dial sees the iconic satellite indications add pops of neon colour against the similarly treated cuts of bronze. Powering the timepiece is the marque’s UR12.02 automatic movement – as it does in Urwerk’s UR-100V range.

Urwerk’s UR-100V T-Rex is limited to just 22, with each available for approx. $72,930.
