Long time partner and friend in the US, Westime is a world renowned retailer and they have this gem available, the UR-210Y Black Hawk, limited edition of 75 pieces. 

The UR-210Y limited edition was originally launched in January 2014. A stealth update, featuring a black scratch-resistant titanium and steel case paired with a black fabric strap. Bold indicators shine out of the dark with the neon green minutes and hours, which glow at night thanks to the SuperLumiNova coating.

The UR-210 collection recently came to a close. It is one of our most popular watches, with its satellite complication with retrograde minute is both highly original and totally explosive. The principal feature is a high-tech, oversized, three-dimensional retrograde minute hand. Its function is to enclose the hour satellite and indicate the time as it transverses the 0-to-60-minute scale. This one-hour journey through time, tracing an arc of 120°, is smooth and fluid. But the true nature of the piece is revealed at the end of the 59th minute. Then a sharp distinct “click” signals the return of the minute hand to its starting point. In less than 0.1 of a second the hand flies back to dock with the next hour satellite.

The dial of the UR-210 features a traditional power reserve (39 hours) indication at one o’clock. In a near mirror image at 11 o’clock we find a similar indication. No, it isn’t a duplicate fail-safe, but something much more important which deserves our full attention, because it is actually a world-first complication that indicates winding efficiency over the last two hours.

When you are comfortably nestled in your armchair, the indicator will be tending towards the red zone to tell you that your UR-210 is not being wound enough by its automatic rotor and is running on stored energy. However, if you are moving around energetically, the indicator will point towards the green zone, a sign that you are replenishing your watch with new energy. This entirely new indication does not measure mainspring torque, but calculates the difference between the consumed and generated energy of the mainspring.

Creators Thoughts:

Felix Baumgartner - “In terms of the degree of evolution of the satellite carousel, I feel with the UR-210 that we have reached the pinnacle of what we can do with this complication.” 

Martin Frei - “More than any other URWERK piece, the UR-210 catches the attention. The eye is inevitably drawn to the winding efficiency indicator… it’s almost a magnetic attraction. The UR-210 is not really a watch but rather a living mechanism grafted onto your wrist."

The UR-210 is now an iconic piece with its series that has come to an end, so there has never been a better time to add one to  your collection.
