    Urwerk watch-any owners out there?

    I am looking at Urwerk 202...Not buying one, just curious. C'mon, a watch powered by compressed air, telescopic hands, turbine air compressors... All this in a watch? No wonder it is over $100K in price. I marvel over the engineering that went into it though. Any actual owners out there to chime in on this watch features etc? Dan

    That would take some getting used to. I hope no-one owns it because I might offend them by saying that it's ugly.

    Here's a used one for only $99,000! The "compressed air" system of turbines is the way the self-winding system is dampened to protect it from over-acting. Neat, but, I just don't see the expense in it. I couldn't imagine accidentally dragging it down a brick surface.....YOW!

    Hardly seems like a bargain...although it is white gold, not just a regular model. As far as looks, I like it due to the unique design...not your typical two or three hand layout
