All Urwerk Models:
In 1997, brothers Felix and Thomas Baumgartner and designer Martin Frei launched Urwerk. "Urwerk" is the combination of two words. 6,000 years ago, Ur became the city where the human perception of time was first molded through the use of the shadows of obelisks. Ur's residents, the Sumerians, were responsible for the first calendar which divided the year into twelve lunar months. "Werk" is German for "to work" or "to create." Therefore, the name "Urwerk" represents the creation of innovative time measurement tools. Pushing the boundaries of haute horlogerie as far as possible, Urwerk's timepieces are bold, technologically complex, and precise.
