Vanguard features & horological ingenuity describes the URWERK pocket watch
The URWERK UR-1001 Zeit Machine Pocket Watch is part of a collection of high-end timepieces crafted by the famous luxury watch maker URWERK.
What makes this pocket watch unique?
The UR-1001 pocket watch is a limited edition piece; only eight pieces were released.
URWERK watches are well-known for their unique style and make.
This is reflected in the first ever pocket watch produced by the company, considered as one of the most complicated and rarest timepieces ever created.
The UR-1001 is visually hypnotic to behold; its dials and complex mechanical movement encased in smooth black metal.
With its oversized dog tag shape, the piece looks like some fancy military gear. It fits right on your palm and is possibly the coolest watch in the market today.
The watch is made of a non-magnetic metal alloy that is resistant to rusting & corrosion. This makes the pocket watch durable and stable under extreme temperatures.
Two of the most striking features of this modern pocket watch are the 100-year and 1000-year indicators. More than just a collector’s item, the Zeit device will still keep track of the total running time even after you’re long gone.
It also showcases URWERK’s signature satellite system that they used in their past watches. There are two dials that make use of this.
The first dial is used to tell the time with its hour and minute hands in a retrograde manner. The second dial, a new addition uses the satellite to indicate the month and date and enables the device to figure out whether the month has 30 or 31 days.
The UR-1001 features an indicator that displays different colors for different moments of the day; plus a mechanism that let’s the owner know when it is time for the watch to be serviced.
