The back of URWERK 201 displays the Control Board inspired by a sports car gauges. There is the 'Oil Change' indicator to remind the watch's owner that it needs a service one in three years of being in use. The linear 100 Year Plus indicator is responsible for the same functions as a car's odometer. It is the first ever horological odometer. It features an absolutely new and original indication. The 100 Year Plus indicator accounts the total time of the movement's functioning for over a whole century.It is noteworthy that the 'Oil Change' and '100 year plus' indicators do not use the mainspring energy as they are operated from the crown winding. This way the watch's creators protected the watch from power reserve reduction and the movement from any negative effect on accurate timekeeping.URWERK's signature Fine Tuning screw is applied for comfortable adjustment that gives the wearer a chance to tune precisely the watch timing to correspond to his own lifestyle.If the hands did not retract, the watch would measure 50mm. The micro-engineering feat described above has been achieved with help of special 'transporters'. One end of the transporters follows a cam that plots the path of the minute indication, while the other end controls the precise length of the minute hand. The transporters are placed under the wings between the satellites. They were subjected to a special MOVIC su***ce lubrication treatment, having eliminated the need for lubricating oils. URWERK has undertaken a deep research into lubrication and metal treatment. As a result, the whole orbital complication requires no oil at all. The 50-hour power reserve indicator is featured in the left part of the dial, while the day/night indicator is found on the right, thus creating a perfect balance.
When the hour hands get retracted, their reduced length offers a shorter and more comfortable case. Every of the three satellites has four hours: 1/4/7/10, 2/5/8/11 and 3/6/9/12. When the new hour gets to the start of the minute chapter, the hand lengthens for indicating the minutes. When the hour passes, the two other hour satellites, with retracted minute hands, start rotating getting ready to take the center stage.The hour satellites that are shaped as angular truncated pyramids provide clear and instinctive time-reading from the side as well as from above. The length of the 201 together with the lugs is 43.5 mm - meaning the timepiece is really comfortable for wearing.URWERK 201 bears an original nickname - Hammerhead. Its name as well as the shape of its sapphire crystal has been inspired by the silhouette of the shark. The case with its knife-edged lines reminds a WallyPower super yacht. However, URWERK 201 has been created not only to impress by its rugged good look. It is astounding due to its technical prowess.URWERK 201 displays the time with help of retractable minute hands that are housed by three revolving hour satellites. These hands are able to precisely adjust their length to follow three vectors with the minutes marking: 0 -14, 15 - 44, 45 - 60. The extended telescopic minute hands provide a wide, easy-to-read dial.
The Omega watchmakers equipped the case with a screw-in back and crown, having provided it with 150-meter water resistance. The chronograph watch goes on either a black white-stitched rubber strap with a fold-over clasp or brushed stainless steel bracelet.Watch fans will definitely enjoy the new Omega Seamaster NZL-32 with its aesthetically appealing design and readability.The dial in silver-black color combination features applied faceted hour markers and luminous dots above them. At 3 o'clock there is a black counter with a silvery edge around it. It offers a clear indication of the elapsed minutes, with blue and red markings indicating the two five-minute periods up to the start. The smaller hour counter is found at 12 o'clock, while a small seconds counter is placed at 9 o'clock. The skeleton Super-LumiNova-coated hour and minute hands and the red hands and of the chronograph counters provide the timepiece with supreme readability. The ideally polished and brushed stainless steel case of the OMEGA Seamaster NZL-32 reveals the distinctive shape and horns of the Seamaster line. The push buttons are found on the side of the case at 8 and 10 o'clock. They add to the Seamaster's well-balanced, harmonious look. A seahorse, the legendary symbol of the Seamaster collection, is featured on the case back.
It is a chronometer-certified mechanism that provides a 40-hour power reserve. Elaborated for the regatta, the timepiece represents a high-precision instrument that gives its owner an opportunity to measure performance to one-eighth of a second. The OMEGA Seamaster NZL-32 is designed to satisfy the major needs of Dean Barker and his crew during a regatta. The timepiece is provided with 'start of the regatta' function that indicates the ten minutes before the starting signal. A special indicator composed of five dots displays the function. The dots gradually get filled with a different color: first they become blue, then red - thus marking the elapse of every successive five-minute period.OMEGA has developed its new Seamaster NZL-32 chronograph to honor Emirates Team New Zealand as the team's official watch. The new Omega timepiece inherited the name of the boat that won the prestigious America's Cup in 1995. OMEGA invited its Ambassador Dean Barker, skipper of Team New Zealand, to collaborate in the development of the watch. The creators of the OMEGA Seamaster NZL-32 wanted it to unite utmost elegance and functionality. The timepiece is driven by OMEGA caliber 3602 self-winding movement.
Let'ssay, for instance, you need to know when it's 11:00 AM in Tokyo. Rather than figuringout the time difference and setting your alarm relative to local time, you canactually set the alarm for 11:00 AM and specify Tokyo as the city.The SNJ005's world time feature is probably its primary appeal. It allowsyou to easily check the time in one of 28 different cities, and to watch two timezones simultaneously. I really like the way you select cities withthe SNJ005, as well. All 28 cities are abbreviated around the bezel of the watchstarting with GMT at the 12 o'clock position, and whenever you are prompted to selecta city (in time set mode, world time mode, and world alarm mode), you press a buttonto advance the second hand until it points to the desired city. In case you're notsure what the abbreviation stands for, the full name of the city scrolls across thetop LCD. The SNJ005's time transfer function is a natural fit with world time mode. Ifyou want to quickly reset the main time of the watch to a different timezone, just navigate to world time mode, select the desired city, hold down the upperleft-hand button for two seconds, and the current time in that city is "transferred"to the main time. Not only can you easily track the time in multiple cities, butyou can very easily reconfigure the watch's main time, then change it back once you'vereturned home. The alarm on the SNJ005 allows you to specify a city in addition to a time. Viewthe Seiko Sportura SNJ005 photo gallery.With its impressive world time functions, the SNJ005 is the Sportura for the worldtraveler. It stands out among its three brothers because it is the only Sporturathat is digital as well as analog. It manages to retain its family resemblance, however,thanks to the inverted LCD (white on black rather than black on white) which blendsin almost perfectly with the rest of the face and gives it the same jet-black dialas the other Sporturas. And like the rest of the line, the SNJ005 is all stainlesssteel with a sapphire crystal, screwdown caseback, and double locking clasp. Features of the Seiko SNJ005 include:World time. Quickly and easily check the time and date in 28 different cities.Time transfer function. (See below for an explanation.) World time alarm. (More on this feature below.)Automatic calendar (up to the year 2050).Stopwatch with a resolution of 1/1,000th of a second (no, that's not a typo!).The maximum time is 100 hours. Water-resistant to 100 meters, or about 330 feet.
