On the first look, the URWerk Geneve EMC Time Hunter is a unique piece that stands out because of its robust look and technical innovations. With the new technology that focuses on mixing electrical parts with mechanical ones in order to make the watch more accurate from all points of view, the EMC Time Hunter is truly an innovation in the field of watchmaking. Here are some of its most impressing features:
- A hybrid watch
As mentioned above, one of the main advantages of the new EMC Time Hunter is the fact that it is a hybrid watch. Much like a hybrid car, this watch combines mechanical and electrical components in order to improve precision and accuracy in telling the time. The electrical parts help the watch when it comes to accuracy and precision, while the mechanical parts are a true spectacle to watch, as the user can enjoy the typical movement of the mechanical parts present in most watches. This is the perfect mix that brings the best of both worlds together in one piece: the URWerk Geneve EMC Time Hunter.
- The extra dial
The EMC Time Hunter comes with multiple dials that show the minutes, seconds and hours. However, in the top left corner, there is another dial where the words ‘amplitude’ and ‘precision’ are written in big white bold letters. The previous models only had the word ‘precision’ written in this dial, but the new model shows that the company now also looks into adding amplitude to their watches. This is an important feature because it shows the dedication the company has put into developing a watch that is both precise and accurate in telling the time, hence the mixed electronic and mechanical parts.
- Adjusting the watch
Most watches on the market, especially the Tourbillon ones require the touch of a watch expert to adjust them. Even the most expensive pieces lose a few seconds once in a while, it is impossible so far to develop a watch that never loses time. What EMC Time Hunter does is offer the user the possibility to adjust the watch himself. The extra dial with the words ‘amplitude’ and ‘precision’ shows how many seconds a watch loses in a day and, using a screw placed on the back of the watch, the user can adjust the watch himself.
The EMC Time Hunter is definitely a unique piece. However, the most impressive thing is not the design, but rather the focus on precision and amplitude. URWerk have created not just a watch, but an innovation.
