It’s the first carbon case URWERK has ever made. It is composed of 81 PTC Carbon strata, compressed into an epoxide polymer resin. This structure draws a regular and refined frame over the UR-220, which highlights the shape of the case.

On the bottom of the case, URWERK reintroduced its “Oil Change” indicator, which had disappeared for several years. This is a numerical gauge, on which months are represented as units, on two adjacent rollers. The counter is activated by the watch’s wearer, removing a protective pin and triggering a push button. From then on, the counters turn and display the operating time of the movement.

Servicing is recommended every 39 months (3 years and 3 months). The counter will then be reset to zero and the pin replaced by URWERK. On the dial, one can find UPWERK’s cherished satellite display: 3 cubes, each with 4 faces, totalling 12 hours, which alternately move on a linear timer, from right to left – a nod to the path of the sun, which travels from east to west.

The assembly is completed by a double power reserve: at 1 o’clock, one reserve day of autonomy. At 11 o’clock, opposite, a second day. Finally, one may note a brand new type of watchband, the first designed by brand co-founder Martin Frei. It is made of Vulcarbon rubber, hand-stitched and hand-finished.
