The EMC White Ceramic aka Stormtrooper was an easy nickname to choose, from Martin and Felix’s love of sci-fi and in particular, Star Wars. The universe that George Lucas built heavily influenced the design of URWERK timepieces over the years.
The signature armor of the Stormtrooper was an instant icon ever since it blasted onto the scene in 1977. Designed for Lucas by Ralph McQuarrie, a conceptual artist who also worked on Battle Starship Galactica and E.T. The Stormtrooper was designed to intimidate but also look super cool and super clean.
The EMC Stormtrooper evokes the same characteristics. The whole watch looks like it belongs in a sci-fi movie, and for this limited edition the white ceramic case set it apart from the previous models, indeed all previous URWERK. Gone is our trademark black look, as we embrace white for the first time!
