  • Catalogue Essay

    'The White Shark was a shared project with the Hourglass. Urwerk had four pieces, the Hourglass had four pieces and the Chronopassion had four pieces. This watch is numbered 1, which can be determined by the red 1 o'clock numeral. The second example in this special series, the 2 o'clock numeral is in red and so on. Urwerk has yet again seduced us inside and out. This watch is pure madness and also a genuine delight.'

    Urwerk

    Swiss • 1997

    The Swiss firm's name "Urwerk" is a play on the German word meaning clockwork. "Ur" is an ancient Sumerian city in which the populace used sundials for timekeeping, while "werk" is German for creation. The company started by Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei is known for their innovative avant-garde designs inspired by space travel. With their own take on time indication, like many of their contemporaries, their futuristic timepieces are rooted in high-end traditional watchmaking. Their signature floating method of time indication using rotating satellites traces back to a watch made in 1656. Producing only 150 watches per year, they have impressed connoisseurs with their innovativeness and cutting-edge technical prowess.
