There are several features that set URWERK watches apart from any other product of the luxury watch sector. The most obvious is of course URWERK’s trademark satellite wandering-hours indication. Equally unmistakeable is the shape of the case with its imposing crown at 12 o’clock. The more perspective might also remark on the liberal use of SuperLuminova lighting up the indications on the dial. This is more than a creative whim by the brand’s creators; it harks back to the source of their inspiration: the 17th century night clocks made by the Campani brothers.

Luminosity is at the heart of the UR-105 CT Kryptonite creation. Its name “Kryptonite” derives from the intense green light emitted from the hour markers. But far from having the baleful effect of the mythical meteorite, it’s a perfect colour match for the watchcase. The contrast between the matt, AlTiN-coated case and the vivid phosphorescence of the numerals is astonishing. Charge up the SuperLuminova, then go into a dark room. Your UR-105 CT will show you the way.
