Hands Down

Bespoke - - SHOOT -

Recog­nised as one of the fore­run­ners of the new wave known as nou­velle hor­logerie, Ur­w­erk is cel­e­brat­ing its 20th an­niver­sary and has co­in­ci­den­tally re­leased a fourth in­stal­ment of its UR-106 ladies col­lec­tion. Named Flower Power, it takes Felix Baum­gart­ner and Martin Frei’s won­der­fully in­ven­tive ex­pres­sion of time (that does away with hands by in­stead em­ploy­ing three mov­ing satel­lites that ro­tate so that the nu­meral rep­re­sent­ing the hour lines up with the minute on the lin­ear track along the lower part of the dial) and adds to the al­ready daz­zling di­a­mond-set case and crown of its pre­de­ces­sors, four beau­ti­ful gem-set flow­ers within the com­pli­ca­tion. At a cost of 96,000 USD, only eleven pieces will be made.
