This is one of the more interesting watches to be launched of recent years. While its not revolutionary for Urwerk, the design is still interestingly evolutionary from its current stable of designs. Not a large watch by comparison to many offerings of late by many brands, this watch still has a lot of presence on the wrist. It has a raw edgy look and feel which belies its exclusive luxury price tag.

I am certain that Urwerk fans will welcome this new design that succeeds in moving away from the UR-103 and UR-202 look and feel.

It is inevitable that knowledgeable and experienced collectors who had been collecting for many years, will begin to find today's watch prices unpalatable when compared with the prices of the same watches just a few years ago. With these street smart collectors, they are far more willing to return to the pre-owned market with confidence and far greater understanding of what they want and the prices of used beauties. For those who know what they are doing, there are still gems to be had and this is one instance of a valuable collectible found by an astute collector friend during a business trip overseas. Now completely restored one cannot imagine that this pocket watch is over 100 years old. Photographed here on top of the Lange reference book featuring the model a series of images of this wonderful timepiece and merged into a video for your viewing pleasure.

Unfortunately not everyone will be able to find such wonderful pieces to add to a collection but it gives hope for those who are passionate about horology - that despite the escalation of prices, there are still gems out there to be had.

In any event, with the anticipated financial crisis looming in the near future, those looking for more recent models may consider holding on to their funds and start looking around the pre-owned market and for sale forums for potential bargains.

An Exhibition by Cartier showcasing its rich horological history is being held at the Marina Bay Sands Arts Science Museum from the 14 December 2011 to 12 February 2012. While Cartier is renowned as a luxury brand for other consumer luxury products, Cartier watches are readily familiar with both collectors as well fashionistas. One only have to visit this exhibition to learn about how the first Santos was known to be the world's first production wristwatch. Also displayed are the other historical clocks and significant watches made by the brand - all the way to the latest offering from this watch marque. The exhibition was designed by Tokujin Yoshioka - a prize winning designer and architect - who was engaged by Cartier to create an exhibition to demonstrate time as art.

For more information about this exhibition, click here for the Press Release.
