Then we get to the lume, and this is one I’d love to see in person. Ever since I was a young child with a glowworm toy sitting on the edge of my bedside table, I have loved things that glowed in the dark. My early Timex Indoglo, my Seiko SKX007, the glowing galaxy stars I stuck on the ceiling above my bed; these things were characterized by their ability to glow so brightly in the dark. With an application of Super-Luminova (it’s green, so we can assume C3), the UR-105 CT Kryptonite looks to leverage that torch-like dive watch appeal and the signature satellite wandering hours display is made possible by the UR 5.03movement. Running at 4Hz and offering a power reserve of 48 hours, it’s cased is titanium with an AITiN coating and the front cover is opened with the sliding switch above the time display. On the left, just above the hours/minutes display, don’t miss the wild digital seconds display, which updates for every 10 seconds via a system that weighs less than 1/10th of a gram.
