My love for URWERK watches started when I first laid eyes on the UR-103. However, it was quite some time before I was finally able to acquire my first URWERK, a rose-gold UR-103T. I enjoyed it for many years until my wife decided that she liked it too. She had a shorter strap put on it so that I could no longer wear it.
When my son was born in 2014, I felt I needed to treat myself, so I ended up buying two more URWERK models: the UR-210 RG — my favorite piece to date — and a UR-110 TTH.
I’ve been acquiring URWERK watches ever since, and I’m proud of my collection of several 202s, 210s and 110s. I also own an Opus 5, the archetypal URWERK, which holds a special place in my collection.
My first URWERK introduced me to the world of independent watchmaking, and I have come to truly appreciate the independent watch companies and how different they are from the mainstream brands. I now own watches from many independent brands, but none give me so much pleasure as my URWERK watches. The rotating satellites system and cutting-edge design just does it for me. So thank you URWERK!
I look forward to seeing what Felix and Martin come up with next. So please don't stop amazing the horological world.
