Swiss luxury brand Urwerk’s newest timepiece UR-110 ZrN Torpedo is a sight to behold. Describing it as out of this world is simply an understatement. The unique bezel with its pale gold hue results from Zirconium Nitride coating, earning the watch the nickname Champagne Supernova. Zirconium Nitride is known for scratch, wear, and corrosion resistance. It will take a true watch aficionado to appreciate the complexity of the dial. With 3 levels of mechanisms, the UR-110 ZrN Torpedo is fitted with a Titanium case back and surface finished with micro sandblast. The other neat features include orbiting satellites and arrow-shaped torpedoes to indicate time. The control panel has a day/night, oil change, and running seconds indicator, which we have to vote is pretty cool.
The UR-110 ZrN Torpedo will be sold in limited edition of only 12 pieces and each will exhibit their red satellite hour numeral. For those interested in owning one, check out the following retailers; Chronopassion in Paris, Marcus in London, The Hour Glass in Singapore and Westime in Los Angeles.
