Urwerk Creates Electric Watch Encapsulating Ancient References To Timekeeping


Recommended Posts

Urwerk has introduced the UR-100V Time and Culture II, affectionately dubbed the ‘Sumer’. The timepiece delves into the historical roots of timekeeping, finding its inspiration in the ancient city of Ur and the pioneering Sumerian civilization. It was the Sumerians who introduced the concept of time as we understand it today, and URWERK’s latest creation pays homage to this ancient legacy.

The Sumerians held the number 60 in high regard, a notion ingrained in the 60 seconds and 60 minutes we now use ubiquitously. This reverence for 60 is echoed in the essence of the UR-100V.

The watch features a sapphire dome that holds a modern interpretation of the moon god Nanna and the Sun god Utu via a four-pointed sun to symbolize the four cardinal points. The striking blue hue of the timepiece pays homage to lapis lazuli, a gem intrinsically linked to the Sumerian goddess Inanna.
