I'm not a fan of the hexagonal satellites in this specific Urwerk but

you are asking a really difficult question as I'm a HUGE fan of the Urwerk 103 designs as well as the Hommage aux Grands Explorateurs so it depends on the day you would ask me this question. Today is the Urwerk because I'm in a more design oriented mood right now but in a few days my answer may change
VC hands down the enamel dial is just gorgeous! NT

Those two watches are so much different that they are worlds apart...

Sorry, I cannot really compare...
09/25/2008 - 23:36
I totally agree with you Radek, no possibility for me to compare.

Very interesting Lin, Two outwardly completely different-looking watches. And yet the principle of the design is very similar. I prefer the Explorateurs watch, but it just shows you how one can engineer a single concept or design into 2 radically different shapes. Nice comparison! Joseph
Comparing apples and oranges to me...

So a choice is almost impossible.  However, if you put a gun to my head, I would probably go with Alex's response and say that it depends on the day and perhaps even the time of day... Duncan

Interesting question Lin. Just like JB, I would go for the Explorateurs because it combines technical prowess in its alternative time display, as well as traditional craftsmanship in the enamel dial.  It also gets points for its concept (hommage to grand explorers) and design creativity.   Cheers, Kazumi

I second that! (nt)

Two magnificent women and unfortunately...

you have to make a definitive choice. Is then a ‘simple’ question of pleasure (and instinct). I love both of them : AND I still take the URWERK.
I refuse to choose

Hello, Well, I understand, but these two watches are so different, one is very classic, the VC, and the other absolutely futurist. One is a picture, the other a "toy" for big boys ! Well, I love them both, I would be of course very embarassed if I had to buy only one. Which one ????? Deniz
Thats the point Deniz, CRUEL but if we are lucky to go foward
09/26/2008 - 11:09

any of us would have to make a choice. Right now for me : the "toy" (as you said)

Lin, I have a feeling you're head over heels... ;-) nt

I will love to... (nt)
