The UR-105M, Urwerk’s latest creation, sparked a mix of reactions when we first showed it to you a few months ago. However, from the moment we saw the watch we knew it was one worth looking at a little closer. It combines the classic Urwerk satellite display with a slightly different case shape, a few indicators tucked into the side of the case, and a “dashboard” on the caseback, making it a pretty representative example of what Urwerk is all about. Here we go hands-on with the UR-105M Dark Knight.
If you’re not already familiar with Urwerk, the Dark Knight might elicit some blank stares at first. Yes, this is in fact a 100% mechanical watch. And yes, this is actually meant to be worn on the wrist. Let’s first take a look at how exactly the Dark Knight tells time so there’s no confusion later.
