Urwerk’s Project Falcon Set To Take Off

The UR-220 is an updated and otherworldly timepiece.

The UR-210 was the poster child of Urwerk’s futuristic and sometimes alien take on the world of haute horlogerie.

And after announcing its final edition a few months back, the manufacture has now readied its successor- the UR-220 Falcon Project.

Here, Urwerk’s latest arrives in a sleek, cutting edge case made from 81 “thinner than thin” layers of carbon compressed into a hard resin – the result being resilience and minimal weight.

Reworked case proportions mean a thinner 14.8mm profile, driving a needed ergonomic appeal despite its heft at 43.8mm wide and 53.6mm long.

Inside rests the new in-house calibre UR-7.20 hand-wound movement, which boasts a 48-hour power reserve and patented satellite indication Urwerk’s known for.

The rotating cubes indicate the hours, while a minute pointer sweeps across a 120-degree, 60-minute scale showcased in the brand’s now signature palette of grey, black and neon green.

The dial isn’t the only feature that winks at watches of the past, with the Swiss label reintroducing the ‘oil change’ indicator (as found on both the UR-110 and UR-203) out back and which presents the timing of the piece’s next service.

The UR-220 Falcon Project is complemented by a new strap – the company’s first in rubber, though one given a Urwerk twist by being cured, moulded and textured and which offers a velvet-like touch.

Price approx. $220,000; urwerk.com
