Electrum is one of the original precious materials, regarded by the ancients as a veritable treasure. This gold and silver alloy was indeed much coveted among Ancient Greeks, Amerindian civilisations and
Ancient Egyptians. While the first coins were minted from this metal, the noble, flamboyant, luminous material gradually fell into oblivion… while awaiting a much-deserved new lease on life. URWERK recreates this magic in the UR-100 Electrum which proudly proclaims ‘here comes the sun’ as the Beatles famously sang.
