I first got interested in watches in the late 1990's. From there I start learning about them. It was at the moment the Urwerk 103 was introduced and it was so incredibly cool! Back then, it was outrageous but also extraordinary too. At that time, all of the collectors I looked up to had one, which was another plus for me.
Although I later discovered the time display was a reinterpretation of the wandering hours, I still found the 103 a remarkable piece of design and construction that is both avant-garde, functional and coherent.
There are several 103s I love, like the brown-purple TiAlN or the platinum Hexagon. However, 103.01 is extra special; it is not only unusual looking but also the first of the series!
