First unveiled in fall 2019, the UR-100 captures the hearts of those enthralled with space travel and three-dimensional timing. This 18-karat yellow gold watch is anything but conventional, and its looks have some collectors lovingly referring to it as C-3PO (the Star Wars droid). Slim and stealthy for its satellite-geared mechanics, the elongated octagon watch is cut from a solid block of 2N yellow gold with a satin finish and a domed sapphire crystal. Time is displayed using rotating satellites that show the hours and minutes. The space-age watch also displays distance traveled on the Earth’s equator in 20 minutes and distance traveled by Earth on its orbit around the sun in 20 minutes. Just 25 pieces will be made.
Price: $58,000 in 18K yellow gold
