The BaselWorld 2011 will open its doors on March 24th to watch enthusiasts around the world. Lots of new watches have already been released ahead of the big show. Urwerk is introducing another extreme time piece at the BaselWorld with the Urwerk UR-202S.
Urwerk manages to design watches that emanate a feeling of menacingly future. The black watch with its telescopic hands looks like a futuristic machine. With the UR-202S, the hours are indicated on 3 rotating blocks. Each block has a telescopic minute pointer that moves across three minute segments (0-14; 15-44; 45-60). A moon phase and day/night indicator complete this contemporary tableau. Visible at the back of the UR-202S are two turbines coupled with the rotor that regulate the watch's winding system. The UR-202S is made from stainless steel.
To wear this mechanical master piece you need to have a budget between $50,000 and $150,000 USD. See also the Urwerk site, which features a really awesome flash intro. In just 10 years, Urwerk’s original approach to watchmaking has shaken the traditionalists and won the respect of collectors.
We will be reporting about the most stunning and technology laden new watches from BaselWorld 2011. The highlight of BaselWorld 2010 was the Tag Heuer Pendulum. Tag will surely have a new high-tech watch to debut at the BaselWorld 2011.
