Featuring the world’s first winding efficiency complication, the UR-210 watch from Urwerk is an amazing piece, called the Urwerk Maltese Falcon. Similar to the Opus V model, this timepiece has a retrograde minute and hour indicator that has a stylized beak shape, and which explains the name of the watch.
The steel and titanium case measures 43.8 mm in width, 17.8 mm in thickness, and 53.6 mm in length. It features a satin surface finish, and is water resistant to up to 3 ATM. Underneath the sapphire crystal and the dial lies a caliber UR-7.10 movement with 51 jewels.
On the upper left part of the dial there is a red and white power reserve indicator, while on the opposite side, the winding efficiency complication is represented by two colors: red and green. Whenever the wearer of the Maltese Falcon is active, the indicator stays within the green zone, indicating that the automatic rotor is winding the timepiece. When the activity level drops, the indicator shifts towards the red zone, showing that the watch is running on stored power alone.
This remarkable feature explains why Urwerk sais that the watch “embodies the symbiotic relationship between man and his watch”. The UR-210 talks to its wearer, telling him exactly what its needs are. The piece will become available starting next month, and it will cost 137,000 CHF (approximately $147,600)
