Urwerk has built a reputation on its avant-garde timepieces but its latest UR-105 Kryptonite Watch may just be the most futuristic piece the brand has ever designed. Named for it vibrant green SuperLuminova numerals and indications, the timepiece contrasts these bright tones with an all black construction. The movement of the Kryptonite Watch is hidden under a hood-like cover that can be manipulated up to reveal the various luminescent dials presented on the face of the watch.

The 39.5mm octagonal case of the Kryptonite Watch is crafted from matte black AlTiN-coated titanium which creates a stunningly dark look and a perfect contrast to the green face of the timepiece. Twin pneumatic turbines operate and regulate the self-winding rate. This allows wearers to harness slight movements to power the watch or completely turn it off and opt for manual winding.
