• THE UR-1001
    TITAN

The UR-1001 is a grand über complication both measuring and quantifying the era in its entirety, from a solitary second to astronomical millennia. Exuding force from a case seemingly carved from a block of solid metal, the UR-1001 marks the passage of time in seconds, minutes, hours, day/night, date, month, years, 100 years and all of the way to a monumental 1,000 years.

“Since we founded URWERK, it has been Martin Frei’s and my horological playground in which we have developed new – both technically and visually – methods of displaying time. However, we were always constrained by the size of the wristwatch. With Zeit Device we could allow ourselves carte blanche and created a larger playground for our imaginations… and then filled it with all of our complications and indications.”

DUAL REVOLVING SATELLITE COMPLICATIONS

The UR-1001 Zeit Device houses a constellation of indications, which include orbiting satellites and a comet-like flying retrograde. Dials, springs, satellites, carrousels, retrograde spiral spring are all manufactured in-house by URWERK, as are most of the components in the Zeit Device's complications and indications.
