Launched in 1996 and born from the collaboration of Thomas and Felix Baumgartner with the collaboration of the designer Martin Frei. Thomas began his career in Saint-Croix working as a pendulier while his brother Felix completed his watchmaking school in Solothurn and worked for Svend Andersen.
All three had a fascination for the kinetic and microcosmic quality of wristwatches and the first designs for an unconventional time display started in 1995.
Launched in 2002 ,after the now classic and collected reference 101 and 102, the company was at a turning point and had a life changing decision to make how to continue the survival of their business and it was at that vital point that UR 103 was launched featuring the newly improved satellite display system and an innovative “control board“ on the reverse. In 2010 after a very successful career, it was decided that they would discontinue the UR-103 before creating their next horological piece of history.
