Classic Unisex Retro Wood Watch: the Opis UR-U1
With the Opis UR-U1 German retro-design house Opis Technology introduces its newest model of a sandalwood wristwatch to the world.
The Opis UR-U1 is conceived as a unisex watch (ø 38 mm, thickness 14 mm) and combines modern precision technology with a design inspired by the style of classic wristwatches from the fifties.
Made from black sandalwood with natural grain the case and wristband are oiled to protect them against water splashes. Material and craftsmanship of the wristband with its small, conjoined links make wearing the watch pleasant, warm and soft. The links can be removed or added individually to adjust length; three additional links and a removal tool are part of the package.
The elaborately fashioned dial face can be chosen freely from a total of six variations. The background is available in green, blue and turquoise and scatters, reflects and refracts incident light into an iridescent play of colours due to its embossed relief. The metal components hands, digits, ring and crown are available either in silver or golden bronze.
High precision is ensured by the movement of type 2115. In addition, great importance was attached to the longevity of the battery.
The UR-U1 was developed by German engineers. Opis Technology GmbH is a young and innovative German company headquartered in Dresden that in addition to watches also produces telephones and lamps in a combination of retro design with modern technology.
