URWERK 201 - Shark-Inspired Watch
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.
