Inspired by a trip to New York during the brand's early years, Urwerk founders Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner unveil the UR-105 CT Streamliner, a stunning watch that takes after the art deco styling of the city's iconic skyscrapers. The lines and architecture of those buildings informed the striking geometry of the Streamliner case, which is crafted from titanium and steel. 

A catch on the surface of the watch slides to open the cover and reveals the complex satellite mechanism underneath, an automatic 52 jewel calibre with twin turbines and a 48 hour power reserve. The cover closes to give you a view of the timekeeping section of the watch where the satellite hours sweep across to indicate the time.
