The UR-106 Black Pink Lotus by Urwerk

By Paul Joseph

Avant-garde Swiss watchmakers Urwerk have created a new cutting edge women’s timepiece called the UR-106 Black Pink Lotus.

The watch features three satellite arms, each with four hour numerals, sweeping along the minute scale in an analogue and digital indication of time.

It is available in 3 colourways: Black Lotus (black PVD coated case with neon yellow details and a black alligator strap), Lotus (a steel case with white alligator strap) and Black Pink (black PVD coated case with pink details and a black alligator strap).

Other notable components include a steel case with a titanium crown which is and set with glittering black diamonds.

“We paid particular attention to the details of this UR-106 version,” said its creators. The carousel and satellites have been worked on by hand to create a special satin finish, while our workshops have carefully painted each hour numeral and cut-out minutes scale.

“The moon shines in a sky of lapis-lazuli blue selected from hundreds of different shades, while the outline of the lotus on the back is exactly as Martin drew it. We wanted a sleek, handsome watch for our UR-106 series, and for us this is a mission success.”

Urwerk was founded in 1995 by watchmaker brothers Felix and Thomas Baumgartner and artist Martin Frei.
