Let's get one thing straight: Urwerk's EMC Black is not a pretty watch and it's not meant to be, it's a proof-of-concept instrument. And a very good instrument at that, one that is not only extremely precise, but is the world's first watch capable of measuring its own precision without external tools or meters.

Urwerk puts an unusually intricate mechanical movement in this modern take on the pocket watch, offering measurements in intervals from 1 second to 1000 ye.

Having had the opportunity to wear Urwerk’s UR-110 TTH for a month, I came to seriously appreciate not only the unique craftsmanship and gorgeous styling of this particular model, but also its cool, yellow-green lume display at night. The blackened titanium case and tantalum bezel is absolutely rock and roll: heavy in color, aesthetic in hue and unusual in this shape.
