Ur­w­erk EMC Time Hunter Watch Hands-On

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - Basel Report -

With the re­lease of the Ur­w­erk EMC Time Hunter, the brand takes its self-des­ig­nated re­spon­si­bil­ity as the ar­chi­tects of ec­cen­tric­ity to a dif­fer­ent level. In­ter­est­ingly, that level in­volves be­ing the only of­fer­ing from the brand to have tra­di­tional time in­di­ca­tion with hour and minute hands. It’s hard not to be im­pressed with their lat­est of­fer­ing which builds on the horo­log­i­cal util­ity of their pre­vi­ous Ur­w­erk EMC Watch (hands-on here) which was the first me­chan­i­cal watch to have a pre­ci­sion-mea­sur­ing de­vice, but adds the abil­ity to mea­sure bal­ance am­pli­tude. Plus, can I add how great this watch looks in green? The Ur­w­erk EMC Time Hunter is pow­ered by the UR-EMC2, in-house cal­i­bre, con­ceived and de­vel­oped by Ur­w­erk in Zurich, Switzer­land. The move­ment, de­spite its fancy abil­i­ties, utilises a tra­di­tional Swiss lever es­cape­ment and op­er­ates at a healthy 28,800vph. The bal­ance wheel is made of ARCAP P40, which is a highly sta­ble and anti-magnetic ma­te­rial favoured by the brand. Ver­ti­cally mounted twin bar­rels con­nected in se­ries of­fer a power re­serve of 80 hours, which is quite suf­fi­cient for a man­ual-wind­ing cal­i­bre. Aes­thet­i­cally, the plates are fin­ished with the Côtes de Genève pat­tern, and have snailed and mi­cro-bead blasted el­e­ments that sit nicely along­side the pol­ished bevels of the screw heads.
