Lot Essay

This endangered species strap is shown for display purposes only and is not for sale. The watch will be supplied with a calf leather strap.

The electro mechanical control or EMC movement was the result of about 6 years of research and development. Mixing mechanical timekeeping with a digital accuracy checking device allows the wearer to check the accuracy of the watch at any given moment, without having to connect it to an external machine or any other testing apparatus.

UR-EMC 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 model was awarded several prizes, including at Geneva’s prestigious GPHG.
