Appearances are deceptive. The UR-106 Black Pink may be pretty in pink, it is no less an impressive statement piece with an identity of its own. Urwerk’s latest creation is a powerful weapon of seduction.

A pink lotus with a dark side bursts into flower as the latest model in Urwerk’s 106 series. Within the UR-106 black pink watch turns a shadowy carousel, encased in gleaming black under an arch of jet-black diamonds. Vivid, shocking pink flares like a firework in the night, focusing the mind on the essential — the hourly milestones of time, as they rotate into position to accomplish their 60-minute patrol.

Like virtually all of Urwerk’s models, the UR-106 Pink Lotus is based on the wandering hours principle. Three satellite arms, each bearing four numerals, carry successive hours across a scale of minutes in a dynamic display of the inexorable progress of time. A labyrinthine moon sweeps across the night to complete the picture. “We paid particular attention to the details of this UR-106 version,” declare its creators, Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei. “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.”
