The Peak Selections: Timepieces - - The Brief -

For 2017’s Only Watch auc­tion, the avant-garde Ur­w­erk has teamed up with the more con­ven­tion-hon­our­ing Lau­rent Fer­rier to cre­ate a watch that some­how man­ages to re­spect two wildly dif­fer­ent styles. Over­all, the Ar­pal One is distinctly Ur­w­erk, thanks to the iconic satel­lite dis­play. But Lau­rent Fer­rier’s pas­sion for vin­tage cars is what gave the Ar­pal One its smooth, cur­va­ceous lines. It’s named af­ter the al­loy the case is made of, Ar­pal+, which is said to be colour-fast, with scratchre­sis­tance su­pe­rior to that of white gold or steel. Con­sist­ing of 75 per cent pre­cious met­als, it was first de­vel­oped for the elec­tron­ics in­dus­try for its strength and ease of use.
