|WATCHES WITH PANACHE
2008 addition to "Black" limited
Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner both share a strong affinity
with the color black. As a result, ever since Urwerk's
creation in 1997, the company has reserved the privilege
of celebrating each new collection by
dressing 10 timepieces in black.
This year Urwerk is introducing the UR103 Hexagon. The masculine lines of its
angular satellites – in stark contrast to the soft
curves of the classical 103 models – reinforce the sensation of an emanating
force within. In the dark, the luminescent SuperLumiNova marking the hours and
minutes, indicate the time in an icy-cool menthol blue.
