Long Lost Urwerk Relative? A 1970 Jump Hour with very familiar features

The contemporary brand Urwerk creates some of the most phenomenally complex and understandably expensive watches today but when finding this beat-up rare vintage jump hour from the seventies, it only made me think of their wandering hour designs, especially their Hammerhead, and cost me $50,000 less! It'll satisfy me for about a week.

Someday Mr. Baumgartner, someday...

Not wandering, retrograde or even protracting hands, just a simple semi-sideviewing jump hour digital display with a low grade manual winding movement.

You gotta admit, DNA tests might prove some relation. Especially the chin and lips.

Of course, I'd rather have any one of these Urwerks
