LAURENT FERRIER X URWERK

LOT 20

It's neither a Laurent Ferrier watch nor an URWERK, yet the signatures of both firms appear on its back. The existence of this unexpected watch defies logic because it is the joint effort of two watchmaking companies that couldn't be more different. Each bases its identity on the opposite ends of watchmaking's stylistic spectrum. On one side, the expression of time-honoured traditions; on the other, an anarchic effort to overturn conventions. The Arpal One LF-UR1 also offers a unique opportunity to witness two independent brands working together to produce a watch for the Only Watch 2017 auction. Laurent Ferrier has forged an enviable reputation as master of the definitive watch in the classic style. URWERK, on the other hand, has spent the last 20 years challenging the watchmaking world with its bold originality.
