Urwerk unveils the Knight, a.k.a. the UR 105-M

  • The futuristic brand made a jump back in the Middle Age to invent the Knight, its last creation.

It integrates in particular visible fixing points evoking the nails of the knights shields. Designed as a contemporary symbol of courage and endeavor, the Knight is available in two versions – gray or black Altin coated bezel – for an average price of 70’000 USD.
