From the brand that brought you a black coated gold watch comes a black coated steel watch (and brushed steel) – and for some reason that seems odd for the brand. What I am more excited about however is the bracelet. This is the first Urwerk watch that I know of that comes with a metal bracelet – and I think it is really fitting. You can get me excited all day long with straps of fancy materials, but I really enjoy a nicely engineered bracelet (which is exactly what I expect from Urwerk).

The 2011 UR-202S “Full Metal Jacket” is a variant of the UR-202, which itself is a variant of the UR-203. This collection is also named the “Hammerhead” due to the shape of the case. It is actually my favorite Urwerk watch style in their collection to date. The UR-202 was previously done in steel/titanium in the limited edition UR-202 White Shark watch here, and I wrote a nice hands-on article with the UR-203 here. The difference between the two watches is the complications on the dial on the left and right. While the UR-203 has an “oil change” indicator and a life of watch indicator, the UR-202 has a moon phase indicator and a day/night indicator – which I find more useful than the features on the UR-203.

Urwerk will offer the UR202S in a few finishes including steel coated with AlTiN (which is coating made of aluminum, titanium, and nitride), as well as a polished steel case. Urwerk will also offer an 18k rose gold version of the UR-202S will also be available. The case is 45.7mm tall, 43.5mm wide, and 15mm thick. Inside the watch is an automatic Urwerk calibre 7.03 movement (love that it is an automatic). Telling the time as always is done via satellite rods which have the hour on them and run along the minute scale. The bracelet has a lot of work that goes in to it and should be really impressive. Overall a nice looker in black and with a bracelet that fits the design of the watch well. The UR-202S will be available as a limited edition of 50 pieces total.
