This watch takes its inspiration from a Star Wars spaceship and costs the same as a supercar

Feast your eyes on the ‘UR-112 Aggregat Odyssey’ – the watch of the future that was inspired by a Star Wars spaceship.

The Urwerk looks like it was designed in the 2070s, with a retro-futuristic, almost over-designed case.

Dubbed the space watch, it draws its inspiration from Archie – the ‘owl ship’ from Watchmen – and the Padme Amidala’s J-type 327 from Star Wars.

It’s made from a blend of stainless steel and titanium and it has two faces because underneath the grooved steel cover, you’ll find the power reserve and digital seconds indications.

Urwerk was founded in 1997 in Geneva by Felix Baumgartner, a third generation watchmaker who learnt his craft in Schaffausen, and Martin Frei, who graduated from the Lucerne school of art and design.

And you can clearly see both elements – engineering and design – in every Urwerk timepiece.

Like other Urwerk models, it’s fitted with a ‘wandering-hour’ complication (there’s an arc that ‘wanders’ around the dial, it takes 60 minutes for a full revolution) and it is powered by Urwerk’s UR-13.01 cal, coming in with a 48-hour power reserve.

This is a crazy watch with an amazing design process behind it, but the price tag is equally stunning.

If you want to get your hands on one, you’ll have to fork out 250,000 Swiss franc ($270k / £205k). Ouch.
