What Would Iron Man Wear?Written by Alvin Wong
It’s an Urwerk and you can actually buy it.
Robert Downey Jr aka Iron Man aka Tony Stark is a well-known watch buff, and it seems that niche independent brand Urwerk has been getting a lot of his wrist time lately. The new UR-111C Black Cobra (above), recently unveiled at Baselworld 2019 and one of our picks of the year, has been spotted as the celebrity’s wrist accompaniment of choice at numerous high-wattage events.
Another favourite – and one that actually made it into the Avengers franchise is a version of the UR 105-CT pictured above. Known as the UR 105-CT Iron, it is powered by Urwerk’s famous ‘carousel’ movement with a four-satellite system and ‘wandering hours’ display.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
