The lumeshot; a special category in watch photography showing a watch in the dark, while only the luminescent material on dial and hands is visible. We already showed you some magnificent examples, like this Rolex Sea-Dweller, but today we show you a very, very special lumeshot!
Usually tool watches like dive watches and pilot’s watches are known for their strong luminescent material and thus feature on most lumeshots. Today’s Weekly Watch Photo is a rare one because it shows an entirely different type of watch as lumeshot and it is in my opinion one of the coolest lumeshots I’ve ever seen. The watch… an URWERK UR-110!
Most watches from the category extravagant independent timepiece are not really known for their use of SuperLuminova (the brand name of the luminescent material). Although extremely rare, we have shown you several lumeshots of watches from that category in the past year. There was the Hautlence HL Ti 02, photographed by the Bert, now the in-house photographer of our friends at Fratellowatches. And there was the lumeshot of the Ressence Zero Series, another watch that fits the profile ‘independent’ and ‘extravagant’.
This week’s gorgeous lumeshot is made by the famous watch journalist Elizabeth Doerr. She was so lucky to get an URWERK UR-110 for a review and the photo above is one of the results. For those who would like to see what the URWERK UR-110 looks like, here’s a daylight photo showing the newest UR-110 ST.
A big thanks to Elzabeth Doerr for the stunning photo! This article is written by Frank Geelen, executive editor for Monochrome Watches.
