Urwerk UR-105 TTH Watch Is One Solid 85K Piece of Intricate Machinery

Just like a car's hood, the new Urwek UR-105 Tantalum Hull or TTH timepiece comes with a lid that hides its complex satellite mechanism. To reveal the action that’s unfloding underneath, the wearer must pull up the metal front cover. Because who doesn’t love to have a mini hidden engine on their wrist?

The new UR-105 revisits the Swiss watchmaker's signature satellite indication. Based on the CT Streamliner model, it follows the same design, but it's even more intricate. Like other pieces, the hull pops open to reveal its complex satellite time indication. It's a futuristic look combined with sharp, classy elements.

As for its "tantalum" name, Urwerk has given it after a rare silver-gray metal, much harder and more durable than gold. This material was used to make its 39.5mm case and its lid, giving UR-105 its industrial look.

Under the hull, a skeleton carousel with four hour satellites, each displaying three revolving hour numerals, rotates against a minute track so that the current hour always points to the current minutes. A wheel that indicates seconds spins in a circle, while a battery reserve indicator moves in the opposite direction.

The minute track and running seconds are highlighted with a blue accent. Markers, dials, indices, and satellites were also given a Super-Luminova coating to make them stand out against the gray metallic tantalum.

In the back, its movement's automatic winding is regulated by two visible air turbines, giving it enough power tor un for 48 hours. The winding system can be adjusted through a tiny lever. In the "FULL" setting, even the slightest movement will cause the mainspring to wind up. Its system can be turned off by choosing the "STOP" mode. To complete the look, the watch sports a Vulcarbon rubber strap with a black DLC buckle.

Limited to 12 pieces, the new Urwerk UR-105 TTH is the last edition of the UR-105 CT and ends the 105 collection. For anyone who wants to have this small engine on their wrist, there's a price to pay, about $85K.
