This UR-100V is set with 400 diamonds (VVS1, Color D) totaling almost 1.90 carats of pure carbon. “We wanted a setting reminiscent of the starry heavens, with nothing at all uniform, more like ordered chaos. It wasn’t so much the size of the stones that was important to us as their arrangement, this almost random design”, says Felix Baumgartner, master watchmaker and co-founder of URWERK.
Four hundred diamonds meticulously selected from eight different formats adorn the case of the UR-100V Stardust. Only the edges of the watch have been left bare. Run your finger over this mosaic of diamonds and you’ll find the structure is soft to the touch, smooth and fluid. Beneath the UR-100V Stardust’s crystal globe, the minutes scale – located on the upper part of the railway-type track – is studded with 36 diamonds, while another 24 adorn the watch crown. The steel pin buckle is enhanced by two rows comprising 11 diamonds each.
In addition to its aesthetics and its wandering hour movement, the UR-100V Stardust is spatial by nature. Like all watches in the 100 collection, it features two recesses on the flanks of its satellite carrier. The first is a kilometer counter representing the distance travelled by the Earth on its own axis in 20 minutes, i.e. 555 km. The second is another kilometer counter showing the distance travelled by the Earth around the Sun during the same period, i.e. 35,740 km.
The UR-100V Stardust bears witness to the Earth’s journey across the void of space, passing millions of suns and reflecting their light.
