Speaking about the Urwerk UR-106 Lotus, Anjali says, “I love Urwerk’s first watch for women especially because it has these soft and feminine pop pink numerical against a black dial that embodies a strong, masculine energy. It is the perfect blend of male and female, the yin yang energies. The watch is bold, empowering and sensual – all at once!”
