That means, in essence, the EMC offers a level of interaction previously unavailable to watch owners. By using a delightfully tactile winding instrument, the wearer maintains power to what is essentially a Witschi device that has been built into this watch. (A Witschi is what watchmakers use to gauge and balance the precision of a watch’s movements to ensure as little deviation as possible occurs over any given amount of time.) Even with the most advanced mechanical watches, the time regulation can be affected through a number of elements, including positioning, temperature, bumps and movement. Urwerk directly addresses this issue with the built-in A.I. monitoring unit.
Still, being a groundbreaker in mechanical and computational watch concepts, the Urwerk EMC has a visually stunning design that has earned the brand many fans. Considering the price tag for one of these is around $120,000, it is absolutely refreshing to see such incredible artistic and theoretical risks taken by an undeniably top-tier brand.
This is without a doubt a watch-lover’s watch that offers some seriously compelling features. Though the price point makes it seem like an investment or heirloom piece, its satin-finished titanium and steel beauty will make the EMC a difficult timekeeper to keep stowed away.
