Phillips Auction house has just announced that one-of-three Urwerk AMCs (Atomic Master Clock) are heading to its “GAME CHANGERS” watch auction in December. Originally sold for $2.7 million USD, the AMC is a result of over eight years of research and development.

The watch pushes the boundaries of watchmaking and engineering in the form of a 70 lb milled aluminium “base unit” case and a mechanical wristwatch that joins the case for precise rate adjustments. Once joined to the “Master Case” GPS is used to fine-tune the watch and make up for any time lost or gained — accurate up to one second every 317 years.

The Atomic Master Clock will start with a low estimate of $1 million USD in hopes that it catches the eye of a serious watch collector. Stay tuned as we’ll be updating you on the final sale price of this timekeeping machine.
