The UR103T from Urwerk

January 2010


Winner of several awards, the new UR103T from Urwerk, also called ‘Tarantula’, is derived from the famous UR103 but, in this model, the orbital cross has been replaced by a structure made of ARCAP that holds four satellites made of aluminium and mounted on a bronze beryllium cross. The cross lets only one satellite appear at a time, the premium, which indicates the hour in both an analogue and digital manner by passing in front of the minute arc. During this time, the three other satellites each make a rotation of 480° on their own axis. It is an elegant dance that requires very precise tooling and assembly.
