Urwerk-103 Piece Unique

UR-103 EngravedIn 2010, the collectionUR-103 Dragon of UR-103 was seven years old. The appearance of these wristwatches from Urwerk at the exhibition in Basel in 2003, made by untrained viewers effect, equal in power break the bomb. Until now, people can not remain indifferent to the provocative design of UR-103. It is a total rejection, or admiration, bordering on adoration. Over the past seven years, the founders of brand Urwerk, Felix Baumgartner and Martin Fry created a great many variations on UR-103. And, noting another birthday of its creation, they announced that watches this series will no longer produce. Crowned by a collection of model in the form of Tarantula Mexican Fireleg.
We can say that it is time to summarize. Especially because in the collection of UR-103 was created many remarkable instances of watches, most of which, incidentally, were produced in limited batches. Was made and a few piece of work - real works of watchmaking. These variations UR-103 was called Piece Unique.
From a technical point of view of four models, which will be discussed below, do not differ. All are made on the basis of classical UR-103 with the use of non-standard solutions in the design.
UR-103 Engraved is a masterpiece of white gold, which was the result of collaboration between the brothers Baumgartner, and the famous engraver  Jean-Vincent Yugenesa. Case of these watches are made by hand. More than 100 hours worked on the application Yugenes engraving on the top plate and side surfaces. For design of watches, he chose the traditional Far Eastern pattern of vines and apples. Placed on the front of the image of a symbol of luck - the hand of Miriam. In the center is placed a plate with letters on ancient Aramaic. This text - a prayer for physical and spiritual health of the owner. UR-103 was released Engraved to order a single copy. Partners gave the watch to Russian philanthropist and businessman Viktor Vekselberg.
UR-103 EagleUR-103 JunkersUR-103 Dragon also released a single piece. Their case is made of white gold 18k samples. The top plate that hides from view the details of the movement, is decorated with an engraving depicting a dragon. The latter is known in Chinese traditional concepts symbolize wisdom, strength and prosperity.
Our fellow-patriots will be pleasantly surprised Model UR-103 Eagle, on the top cover is engraved with two-headed eagle - the emblem of Russia. Cases of watches is made of white gold, adorned with lace lettering engraving. Perhaps this is a tribute to the country that launched the first satellite, which at one time inspired the creators of watches for the invention of a fundamentally new UR-103.
UR-103 JunkersUR-103 Phoenix carries a top cover made of white gold emblem of the same name by German automotive company. Engraving on the curved side faces similar form piers on which the rushing traffic.
Speaking of single piece, we can not ignore the model UR-103 Phoenix. In 2011, the company still Urwerk back to basics and issued the watches to the charity auction. Yugenes performed on its white gold engraved as a phoenix - a mythical character, destined to become a talisman for the owner of watches.
Now we can say that the collection of UR-103 left the stage, while remaining just as valued as ever and collectors, and fans of technological innovation. And leaving it, like the birth, was a bright and more than worthy.
