Lot Essay

Urwerk was founded in 1997 by Felix Baumgarter and Martin Frei and 2017 marks the companies 20th anniversary. The UR-101 was launched in Baselworld in 1997 and was the companies first watch. This model was made in 1999 and came in a limited production of 500 pieces made in 18k white gold and this is number 7. The design of this watch was inspired by Han Solo's space craft, the Millennium Falcon, from the movie Star Wars. These early Urwerk watches do not come up for sale in the second hand market often and this is a great opportunity to own one.
