$2.7 million Urwerk

Post by SynMike » October 25th 2019, 9:41am

"The Urwerk AMC (for Atomic Master Control) is a hybrid system, made up of two “autonomous, but linked” parts, according to Urwerk.

The first is the nearly 70-pound aluminum case “base unit” — that looks like something agent 007 might need to disarm a bomb — which is a state of the art atomic clock. An atomic clock keeps the most accurate time on the planet essentially by measuring the high-speed vibrations of atoms.

The other part, considered the mobile unit, is a mechanical wristwatch, which can be docked in the base unit to correct any discrepancies in the time-keeping, as well as “compensating for any minute changes in temperature, air pressure or humidity,” according to Urwerk.

Interesting idea. Who wouldn't want their very own atomic clock?

The watch itself is about as ugly as any I've seen.
The atomic clock looks more like a "Spy Kids" movie prop than a real scientific tool.
$2.7 million? Make it $2.7 thousand and it is still a "Nope" from me.

There's an "atomic" clock in Colorado that I can sync my $80 G-shock and $300 citizen to for free.
