That’s not the Terminator’s gallbladder you’re looking at there. It’s actually a pocket watch made by Urwerk, a noted designer of extremely high-end timepieces for folks like to think they are Jules Verne.
The watch, called the UR-1001 Zeit Device, tells the time down to (up to?) the century and even has a register for 1,000s of years aka millennia. Why? Because they wanted to, that’s why. It’s made of Aluminium Titanium Nitride, a tough metal used in milling machines and drill bits.
I doubt any of us will go down to the jewelry shop pick one of these up so our buddy at Hodinkee built up a very useful guide to the Zeit Device’s various features. I also can’t imagine any of us surviving to see the clock tick over to the next century let alone the next millennia, so we’ll have to take Urwerk’s word for it that their watch will survive that long.
Whether you’re a James Bond villain timing the launch of your space laser or an immortal crusader tasked with guarding the Holy Grail for centuries, Urwerk has you covered.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
