UR-T8 Transformer

Urwerk 2017

Men's

UR-T8 Transformer square

 

 

The UR-T8

Transformer is quite a beast, but what else would we expect from Martin Frei

and Félix Baumgartner, for Urwerk's 20th anniversary year, than something very

much against the grain? As its name suggests, this reversible watch

transforms in the blink of an eye. A mystery object on the underside, the UR-T8

Transformer shows its mechanical muscle when the case is vertically pivoted to

click into its cradle and show the time by way of an intuitive display of

childlike Simplicity. Reprising the brand's tried-and-tested carrousel system,

the 12 hours, in groups of four, run along the minute scale to show time both

digitally and analogically. This ingenious concept is materialised inside a

shaped case in textured titanium that begs to be touched as much as seen.
