The URWERK UR-100V LightSpeed transcends the conventional watch, encapsulating the grandeur of the cosmos with its design and function. Inspired by the constant speed of light, this watch is a remarkable fusion of science and art, celebrating the mysteries of the universe and humankind’s journey to understand them.
At the heart of the UR-100V LightSpeed is an innovative 3D planetarium that traces the path of light from the Sun to the planets, reminding us of the profound distances within our solar system. This feature not only tells time but also tells a story—the story of light’s eternal voyage through space.
Eschewing traditional hands, the watch features a satellite time-display system where two celestial bodies—a minute satellite and an hour satellite—glide along a graduated arc, marking the passage of time in a way that evokes the orbital mechanics of the cosmos. This avant-garde timekeeping echoes a 17th-century clock design, reimagined for the modern age with a touch of stellar imagination.
The UR-100V LightSpeed is a narrative piece, connecting its wearer to the timeless dance of the universe and the light from stars that have shone long ago. It’s a wearable piece of art that invites contemplation of our place within the vast tapestry of the cosmos, offering a daily reminder of the light that binds us to the farthest reaches of space.
