TERRA 1

PRECIOUS MEMORIES

ANNIVERSARY MODEL 2020

Leinfelder Uhren München is turning ten, one decade marked by one great love: the love of time. To celebrate its birthday in style, the Munich-based watch manufacture has decided to focus on no less a theme than our home planet. Earth is the focal point of the limited-edition anniversary model Terra 1 (terra = Latin for Earth). This extraordinary timepiece takes its wearer on a journey through the infinite expanse of the universe—while uniquely grounding them at the same time. 

 

Approximately 70 percent of Earth’s surface is covered by water, which is why the Earth looks so blue when seen from space. It was cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first human to enjoy this magnificent view from space on 12 April 1961, who coined the phrase of Earth as the “blue planet” after completing his legendary first orbit. 

 

The Terra 1 by Leinfelder Uhren München now affords watch lovers this exclusive view of Mother Earth every day with a simple glance at their wrist. The dial of this classic three-hander is graced with a finely detailed globe against a background of space with its hues changing from deep blue to midnight black speckled with mesmerizing stars. A green arc spans the dial above the atmosphere, symbolizing the need to treat our planet with care, respect and love. It is our only, precious home, which we have a duty to protect. Red dot indices, symbolizing the element of fire, provide a vibrant contrast. 

 

At the heart of the Terra 1 sits the L-H01 mechanical movement. This hand-wound caliber by Uhren-Werke-Dresden—Leinfelder Uhren München’s partner since 2013—is the epitome of precision, designed and manufactured in Germany, with 95% of the work done in-house. Inside the Terra 1 it is executed in a novel German silver version.
