The 200 collection welcomes a new generation: the UR-230. This “Eagle” is distinguished by its exterior, its design and its mechanics.
URWERK elevates its UR-200 family to new heights with the introduction of the UR-230 ‘Eagle’, a timepiece that embodies the pinnacle of mechanical innovation and aesthetic expertise. Limited to a series of just 35 pieces, the UR-230 ‘Eagle’ is a testament to URWERK’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of traditional watchmaking. The watch is powered by the UR-7.30 caliber, which features a dual variable-geometry turbine, a double shock absorber, and a hybrid winding system. The UR-230 ‘Eagle’ undergoes a physical transformation with a CTP carbon case that includes a mobile cover, lending it aerodynamic lines and a slimmer profile reminiscent of a bird of prey. This sophisticated timepiece retains the iconic revolving satellite complication of URWERK, with a three-armed carrousel where rotating blocks display the hours, and an aluminum 3D retrograde hand indicates the minutes.
URWERK has also developed a world-first set of shock absorbers for the UR-7.30 caliber. These include turbines that feature external shocks and control the airflow for the winding system. The strength of the ‘air brake’ can be adjusted via a rotating knob on the watch’s back, while a second switch allows for switching to manual winding mode. The UR-230 ‘Eagle’ sports a trapeze-shaped case made from CTP carbon, known for its optimal weight, stiffness, and graphic effect. This carbon is machined into a controlled geometric pattern, revealing the layers in a visually captivating design. The back is crafted from grooved, dermo-compatible black DLC titanium, and inside, the UR-7.30 caliber is enclosed in a strongbox-like container. A notable feature is the cover that lifts to reveal the satellite system, designed to protect the sapphire crystal and close gently, echoing the precision of an eagle’s talons.
