Our choice of wristwatch says a lot about us.
Urwerk’s latest creation, the EMC Pistol, is the
perfect choice for even the most straight-laced
among us who wish to display a streak of wild
rebellion. TEX T BY BILL LINDSEY
Combining an outrageously engraved casing with an exquisite
crocodile strap, the EMC Pistol is one of the most unique timepieces to
ever adorn a wrist. As expected, the movement is engineered to keep
track of time. But while many watches are accurate, the EMC Pistol
tells time with all the panache of Captain Jack Sparrow sashaying
down the Black Pearl’s gangplank. Reminiscent of a Victorian Era
dueling pistol, the casing houses a mechanical movement, a hand-
cranked electric generator, a capacitor and a system to monitor
efficiency. One dial indicates time, another runs seconds, the third
reveals the status of the 80-hour power reserve while the fourth
indicates the precision of the movement. In simple terms, the dial lets
you know if you’re gaining or losing even a fraction of a second. If so,
a small hidden handle allows the needed correction. Swaggering style
with precision, a rare combination indeed; Urwerk.com.
