Prepare to be dazzled as URWERK, the renowned watchmaking innovator, showcases its latest design, the UR-100V Stardust.
Stardust, as it is aptly named, is a mesmerizing creation that elevates the art of watchmaking to new heights. At its heart lies a steel case adorned with a resplendent display of 400 brilliant-cut diamonds, akin to a celestial constellation. The ethereal beauty does not stop there – an additional 24 brilliant-cut diamonds grace the tonal crown, while the case back boasts a shot-blasted titanium finish.
Complementing this cosmic timepiece is a Baltimore blue fabric strap, mirroring the enchanting blue accented numerals adorning its satellite watch face. A steel pin buckle, adorned with 22 diamonds, adds the perfect finishing touch to this symphony of blue and brilliance.
As with all UR-100 and UR-100V models, Stardust transcends mere timekeeping. It embraces a spatial nature, with a captivating wandering hour movement that, in the words of the watchmaker, “bears witness to the Earth’s journey across the void of space, passing millions of suns and reflecting their light.” This mesmerizing dance is powered by the self-winding UR 12.02 movement, guided by a Windfänger airscrew. With a remarkable power reserve of 48 hours, 40 jewels, and a frequency of 28,800 vph, it exemplifies the pinnacle of watchmaking craftsmanship.
Felix Baumgartner, master watchmaker and co-founder of URWERK, sheds light on the inspiration behind Stardust, stating, “We wanted a setting reminiscent of the starry heavens, with nothing at all uniform, more like ordered chaos. It was not so much the size of the stones that was important to us as their arrangement, this almost random design.”
For those who seek to own a piece of this celestial wonder, the UR-100V Stardust is available in a highly exclusive production of only 10 examples per year. Priced at 88,000 CHF (approximately $99,593 USD), it’s a testament to the fusion of art and engineering that URWERK has consistently delivered to horology enthusiasts worldwide.
