Known for its history of bold, attention-grabbing timepieces, independent Swiss watchmaker Urwerk celebrates its 20th anniversary with the UR-105 CT Streamliner. With geometric angularity and symmetry that are direct Art Deco influences, the Streamliner possesses a cover that lifts revealing the time and power reserve and a level that reveals four satellites on a carousel with three-hour numerals and five-second increments. Time is displayed digitally with its 48-hour power reserve placed on the right side.

According to the Urwerk press release, “The digital seconds are remarkable in that they indicate tens of seconds. The mechanism was made using a photolithographic process, with each marker open-worked to make it as light as possible. It thus weighs less than a tenth of a gram.” Two pneumatic turbines control the self-winding rate, which can be set with a lever, that adjusts the winding mechanism, turbines, and dampens the winding rotor to reduce stress on the mainspring.

The UR-105 CT Streamliner is available in two versions: titanium and mirror-polished steel or titanium and black PVD coated steel, which both retail for $65,000 USD on Urwerk’s online store.
