The Urwerk AMC is a modern take on a 220-year old idea. During 1795, Abraham-Louis Breguet revealed to his son his latest invention – the creation of the ‘sympathique’ clock where you had a high precision main clock which can regulate the time and accuracy of another timepiece. No manual intervention was needed. You just had to place your portable watch (such as a pocket watch) at a specially designed holder or dock on the main clock which will then set and regulate it overnight. Fast forward 22-decades, and you now have this latest creation by Urwerk; the Atomic Master Clock (hence the name ‘AMC’) has a main timekeeper/ clock that can automatically correct the time and regulate the accuracy of an accompanying mechanical wristwatch.
