Awesome Urwerk UR-1001 Pocket Watch
   
   

If when you think of a pocket watch you picture a gold coloured circular styled victorian timepiece.Iit might be time to have a rethink, after feasting your eyes on this modern take of the traditional pocket watch in the form of the awesome Urwerk UR-1001.

The Urwerk UR-1001 has been constructed out of a single block of metal, and the complications within the watch enable it to track time from one second to a 1000 years.



On the rear of the watch a flap folds down to reveal a counter that is counting down the next 1000 years, together with a slightly quicker 100 year countdown timer. There is also a maintenance dial, positioned middle left that indicates when the watch needs a service or an oil change, normally every three years.





Unfortunately the price and availability of the Urwerk UR-1001 pocket watch are still unknown, but if the price is ever revealed will we keep you updated,  but I would start saving your pennies now.

Start saving your pennies now and by the time that watch counts down 1000 years you might have enough Roll Eyes

How often do you have to change the control rods?

That's what the 100-year countdown is for. The 1000-year countdown is the remaining lifespan of the microsingularity that gravitically stabilizes the escapement.
