It’s been a while since we’ve showcased a unique timekeeper here at Men’s Gear. A certain Swiss watchmaker has been making some of the most jaw-dropping wristwatches to date and it’s back with another one. Not one to follow conventional horological design and functions, Urwerk has made a name for itself showcasing the avant-garde side of watchmaking.
It is reestablishing that fact a reveal of the Urwerk UR-T8 Colibri watch. This latest offering is apparently a collaboration with Emmanuel Esposito, an artist who specializes in making blades. Akin the some of Esposito’s finest masterpieces, the UR-T8 Colibri is a work of timekeeping art. Just like us, you’re probably wondering how the watch tells the time.
Actually, the available images are showcasing the underside of the timepiece and flaunting the exclusive decoration. We’re talking about the beautiful black-lip mother-of-pearl inlay shimmering with an intricate Argyle pattern. Additionally, what holds all of the diamond-cut pieces together are 18k gold pins on a stainless steel frame.
The Urwerk UR-T8 Colibri shares the spotlight with the Colibri T-8 art knife that shares the same inlaid pattern on the handle. This bespoke blade even flaunts a kinetic internal turbine, which is a little overboard, but astounding nonetheless. Furthermore, the folding knife’s mechanism even features ceramic ball bearings.
The flip-over case of the wristwatch is crafted from Grade-5 titanium with a brushed and diamond-cut pattern finish. It runs on Urwerk’s UR 8.01 automatic movement with a 48-hour power reserve. Overall, you’re looking at a spectacular timepiece with an equally stunning knife.Only from Urwerk
