Co-founders of URWERK, Martin Frei and Felix Baumgartner, have a serious affinity to all things Star Wars. This is evidenced by URWERK’s latest very limited edition of the 43mm URWERK EMC Time Hunter Stormtrooper timepiece. Having appeared in various guises, the EMC Time Hunter appears for the first time in URWERK’s history in a white ceramic receptacle, a nod to Frei and Baumgartner’s love of Star Wars and the signature white armor of the Stormtroopers. The case material is ceramic-lacquered grade 5 titanium and stainless steel with transparent sapphire crystal.
The idea behind URWERK’s invention was to provide the owner of the watch with information that in normal conditions only a watchmaker can visualize. The Time Hunter Stormtrooper is a unique interactive watch that lets you gauge the amplitude of the balance and adjust the running rate of the watch. The brand wanted to create “a precision timepiece with a system whereby the owner can accurately calculate the timing rate of the movement so that it can be finely adjusted to the owner’s lifestyle and habits.” As is typical with all of URWERK’s creations, the Stormtrooper is truly a living timepiece and you don’t even have to be a Star Wars fan to own it.
