UR-105 RG LIMITED EDITION OF 100 PIECES
Hello, my precious! The one UR-105 to rule them all.
A member of the URWERK 105 Knights collection, the UR-105 TA has an 18k 5N red gold shield.
First launched in 2015 limited to just 100 pieces, the RG is the crown jewel of the 105 series. The UR-105 TA is a real watchmaker's watch that explodes with creativity. It isn't round, has no hands, and no tourbillon: It is 100% pure URWERK.
The “TA” of the UR-105 TA stands for “Turbine Automatic”. That is because the movement’s automatic winding is optimally regulated by dual air turbines on full show on the back. These turbines are bead- blasted, satin-finished and treated with black PVD for perfect aesthetics. The winding mode is selected by a small lever. In the “FULL” position, only the slightest movement is needed to wind up the mainspring. "RED." (for “REDUCED”) moderates the winding so as to minimize excessive tension on the mainspring. On "STOP" mode, the winding system is disabled and the UR-105 TA can then be hand-wound if necessary by the crown.
The UR-105 TA also embodies all the years of research invested into URWERK’s wandering hour satellites. Here, the ingenuity of this mechanism lies in the invisible carousel responsible for the operation of the satellite hours. The carousel operates precisely, silently, subtly and in harmony with the rest of the timepiece.
Felix Baumgartner - “With the UR-105 TA we wanted to get the best of two worlds. We have enjoyed demonstrating the extent of our savoir-faire, from the micron-precision mastery of our CNC machines to the superb hand-finishing carried out in our ateliers. It is a piece that delights the eye. Observed under the loupe, it reveals all the little subtleties that we have incorporated into it. With our previous timepieces, our satellites were supported by an orbital cross at the top. We rethought this concept and made some refinements. The fruits of this can now be felt when setting the time on the UR-105 TA: There is virtually no friction, no jerking movement, just the ballet of satellites. It is the fluidity of the gears that quietly reveals all our hard work."
Martin Frei - “The UR-105 TA is our URWERK Knight, the bezel evokes the breastplate of a knight’s armour, protecting the mechanism from the ravages of time. The UR-105 TA is an Haute Horlogerie creation."
Condition Rating UR-2: Good condition, minor marks, wear and tear, movement in serviced and working condition.
