The mavens of micro magnificence over at Urwerk have released another in their Rare Species line, the Urwerk UR-1001 Zeit Device. This cool little complication displays more measurements than you could hope to experience, from micro-seconds to thousands of years. Let’s get listy– the Urwerk Ur-1001 Zeit Device includes indications for satellite hours, retrograde minutes, day/night, running seconds, power reserve, revolving satellite calendar, oil change warnings and indications for 100-years and 1000-years. Even after you’re long gone, the Zeit Device will still keep track of its age for future wearers (or the museum this watch will ultimately be retired to). Sure, the thousand-year indicator may seem like a gimmick, but its the gadgetry within this piece that makes it so stunning. Those spinning, three-pointed dials show hour, minute, month, day and date all at a quick glance. The rest is a bit more complicated, but small-form complication is what Urwerk does so well. The price? Let’s just say it might take us a good thousand years to pay this one off…[via thecoolist]
