Midas touch: The Urwerk Raging Gold UR-105

The lure of gold

Midas touch: The Urwerk Raging Gold UR-105
The irresistible allure of gold has never been more enthralling captured in Urwerk’s limited-edition Raging Gold UR-105 watch

Glided in the most precious and prestigious metal known to mankind is the new Raging Gold UR-105 timepiece by Urwerk, a revolution that begs attention. Rapt with intriguing elements, this inimitable watch is a merger of tradition and technology where its hardware hammered in the classic Clou de Paris motif co-exists alongside an avant-garde architecture and mechanism.

Shaped like a shield cast in red gold for its bezel, the Raging Gold engages beyond its striking visuals with an enticement to reach out and explore its textured contours. This fascination extends to the dial, mounted on a viewing carousel beneath which rotates four satellite discs denoted with the hour indices — flawlessly calibrated via a UR 5.02 calibre double-turbine system to display the right hour at the right time. Renowned as Urwerk's wandering hour principle, a 60-minute scale arcing across the edge of the watch face completes this ultramodern façade. Utterly grandiose and radical, no self-professed gold lover will be able to deny this finely tuned temptation of a timepiece.
