Re­bel­lious Girl

Bespoke - - EMPEROR 1688 -

Since the com­pany was founded in 1997 by de­signer Martin Frei and watchmaker Felix Baum­gart­ner, Ur­w­erk has emerged as one of the most prom­i­nent names in the horo­log­i­cal in­dus­try’s outer fringes. This is thanks in no small part to a strong track record of chal­leng­ing the re­garded con­ven­tions of Swiss watch­mak­ing. Yet de­spite (or per­haps be­cause of) the low-vol­ume firm’s un­ortho­doxy, it has taken them un­til now to come out with a watch for women. Thank­fully, it’s been worth the wait. The moon­phase UR-106 Lo­tus is as rad­i­cal as you’d hope for, with three satel­lite hands, each with four hour nu­mer­als, sweep­ing along the min­utes scale in an ana­logue and dig­i­tal in­di­ca­tion of time. Avail­able in ei­ther ti­ta­nium and steel with white di­a­monds, or Pvd-coated ti­ta­nium and steel set with black di­a­monds, both ver­sions will be limited to 11 pieces and set at a price of 87,400 USD.
