Urwerk has created a new watch called the EMC (Electro Mechanical Control) which has been designed by the brands ‘experimental laboratory’ and is powered by a tiny hand-cranked generator that folds out from the side of the watch.
Urwerk describe their new Electro Mechanical Control watch as the world’s first fully-integrated mechanical watch with built in ‘artificial intelligence’.
“Changes in position and temperature, as well as shocks, can all adversely affect the isochronism (timing regularity) of a wristwatch. But thanks to EMC’s unique and pioneering monitoring unit, not only can the wearer obtain the precise timing rate on demand, they can then use that information to accurately adjust the precision of their watch to suit their own personal rhythm.
EMC allows you to obtain reliable and accurate data about your timepiece at the touch of a button, information that until now has been the preserve of professional watchmakers. Using this information, you can fine-tune one of the most exciting, most jubilant mechanisms invented – the mechanical watch – all by yourself.”
