UR-103.05 PLATINUM LIMITED EDITION OF 50 PIECES
With the exclusive UR-103.05, we extended the concept of opening the ingenious orbiting satellite to the heavens. The Targa crystal is enhanced with the addition of a revealing elliptical window each side of the streamlined body which visually lightens the whole structure.
With a body both innovative and elegant, the 103.05 deserved a royal treatment so naturally, we looked to the king of noble metals - platinum-for the case.
The three windows lay bare the 103.05’s high-tech complication and materials with black PVD coated grade 2 titanium for both the hour satellites and orbital cross; turning the watch over reveals the secrets of the grade 5 titanium Control Board.
To make a UR-103.05 platinum case takes approximately: four and a half weeks to program the CNC machine, three full weeks to regulate/adjust the tools; over two days to actually make the case; 15 standard tools and eight special tools; six case position changes; and just five cases are made before needing to replace tools!
And the difficulty of working with the platinum cases does not terminate with the machining: it then takes twice as long to finish and polish the much denser platinum case as it does the gold!
The UR-103.05 has a shared DNA with other precious platinum watches in the URWERK collection, which is hinted at with an arc of natural metal perlage tracing the curve of the UR-103.05’s minute chapter. An exquisite palladium outline traces the perimeter of the Targa crystal, highlighting the complexity of the form against the crenellated platinum case.
Bright yellow SuperLuminova makes an audacious statement by day; however, at night it emits an ice-blue glow reminiscent of the cockpit instrumentation of a powerful fast jet.
Felix Baumgartner - "It is amazing how the use of different materials and finishing can change the appearance of a watch. Giving each one its own look and feel. Here in the UR-103 PT, the platinum gives the watch a certain weight and look fit for royalty!"
Martin Frei - “Although one of our classic models the 103 has always had a futuristic sci-fi inspired design, and the use of platinum with its clean looks coupled with the sapphire windows on either side of the case creates a bright showcase to the inner workings of orbiting satellite carousel."
Condition Rating UR-3: Visible scratches to the case or sapphire crystal, movement in serviced and working condition.
