Urwerk 201 – Revolving Satellite Watch

An innovative Revolving Satellite Complication displays time on the 201. Telescopic minute hands operate through three orbiting and revolving hour satellites. These telescopic hands precisely adjust their length following the minutes and then retract. Extended, they enable the 201 to display the time across a large easy-to-read, dial. Retracted, they allow for a shorter and more comfortable case.

A 50 hour Power Reserve indicator (left) and Day/Night indicator (right) complete the dial.

The Control Board on the back of the 201 features: an Oil Change indicator notifying the owner a service is due; a 100 year plus indicator, the worlds first horological odometer, keeping track of the total time of use for over a 100 years; and URWERK’s signature Fine Tuning screw allowing the wear to adjust the rate to suit their life style.

    They are really cool, but what about price? I didn’t find any information about the price on the official web.

      The price…

      Sit down (if your not seated): If you’re going for the ‘regular’ 201 you will have to spend about CHF 65,000 (that’s about $ 55,000 or € 38,000). In 2006 there were just 160 of these manufactured. No words about the 201 PT edition so far, but as it is a very limited edition of only ten to be manufactured you can imagine….

    what's wrong with just plain old watch batteries? It doesn't take up that much power, does it?
