Back in Basel, we had the chance to sit down with Martin Frei, chief designer for one of our very favorite modern haute horology brands, Urwerk. He walked us through his entire design philosphy and explained each of Urwerk's timepieces.
Just a few weeks back, Urwerk released their Black Cobra CC-1 and that got the whole world buzzing. The Cobra looks good, there is no doubt about that, but after reading some other blogs posts on this watch, it was clear that readers can't really grasp this watch until they see it in action. Luckily, we have this video of Martin explaining the original Cobra.
This watch is, without hyperbole, one of the Hodinkee top five in the world. Watch below and you'll see why.
