One of the most extravagant, creative, and artistic brands in the world was established in 1997, when Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei united to develop a new luxury watch company. They both had a strong passion for watchmaking and wanted to create something extraordinary, avant-garde and unique. That was the beginning of the glorious timeless Urwerk fine watches.

It should be noted that the business alliance of Baumgartner and Frei was a pure accident. Felix was born in a family of talented watchmakers and all his life he has been inspired by the dream of creating his own business. Martin, in his turn, is an experienced designer with an innovative vision of art and culture.

In 1997, Baumgartner and Frei created their first masterpiece- the UR-101 model and exhibited it at Baselworld that same year. To become an outstanding and competitive company, Urwerk had to search for new innovative ideas in watchmaking, as there were dozens of brands making fine watches. The idea was to start a futuristic approach to creating each of a new luxury watch, and to say that Urwerk succeeded is to say nothing.

The brand draws on inspiration from different sources, from 17th century watches to people, ideas and machines. When creating a Swiss watch, Urwerk seems to be succeeding in their aim to create an original work. Explore beyond the classical horizons of watchmaking is not cheap. The Urwerk high end watches for men and women are very expensive, but the customers can be sure that each timepiece had been given proper attention and care. Urwerk fine watches are made from the best materials, such as stainless steel, gold, diamonds and Altin (aluminum, titanium, and nitride) and represent an uncompromising quality and functionality.

The Urwerk high end luxury watches are considered to be very futuristic due to their unique engineering and style. In 2009, Urwerk won the first prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Asia Competition with its amazing The Tarantula UR 103T Swiss watch. The conservative world of expensive timepieces was shocked by the incredibly daring design and unconventional way of indicating time. The traditional hands were replaced by four orbiting satellites and a control board was put on the back of the watch. Out-of-the-ordinary design was truly contemporary, nevertheless the company sticks to watch making traditions, building their future on the fundamental principles of haute horlogerie.

Urwerk's sport watches gained great popularity among sportsmen and exclusive clientele, as even Michael Jordan has purchased one of these marvelous Swiss watches.
