The Incredible Wristwatch: Urwerk UR-110

The UR-110 wristwatch by Urwerk displays a modern-robotic appearance with its beautiful yet unconventional face and layout. The leather band and titanium case displays the time on the right edge, providing the time 'discretely and elegantly' as it peaks out from under your sleeve.
Enveloped in a secure titanium case, a central carousel provides the complication with stability and equilibrium, while planetary gearing keeps the three counter-balanced time modules in parallel formation. The dial side Control Board features small seconds; an "Oil Change" indicator to alert the user when it is time for a service; and a Day/Night indicator to help keep track of changing time zones. Visible on the back, twin air turbines minimize wear in the automatic winding system.
Curiously Urwerk has yet to release a price of this amazing watch... either way, I'm sure it is more than the change that my couch cushions can provide...
