When Urwerk set out to create the new UR-106, they wanted to design a watch that was equally clean and elegant, but also true to their highly complex and futuristic style. Set to release for this year's Only Watch auction, the Urwerk UR-106 definitely accomplishes all these goals flawlessly, introducing a timepiece that features a newly designed satellite hour indication and moon phase configuration inspired by "architecture, astronomy, fighter jets, and science fiction." In line with these muses, the Urwerk UR-106 features a lightweight titanium body fitted with a sapphire crystal face, steel bezel, and optional black PVD coating. Inside, their 6.01 automatic calibre movement keeps the three satellites sweeping across the dial to create a beautiful horological bloom. Each is finished with a matching alligator leather strap with tonal stitching to match the watch's numerals. Learn more about its design and inspiration, here.
