In URWERK’s U-Research Division – the brand’s ‘experimental laboratory’ – some wild projects emerge. This innovative, anti-establishment spirit has now been channelled into a watchmaking Holy Grail: fully interactive, Urwerk EMC (Electro Mechanical Control) is the world’s first precision mechanical watch in which the timing can be both monitored and adjusted by the user to suit their lifestyle.

URWERK EMC (Electro Mechanical Control) is 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.

The watch will be available in silver or black titanium.
