UPDATE YOUR WRIST The development of the e-Crown® came down to one simple but fundamental question: What if I could trust and rely on my mechanical watch as much as I do for my phone.
e-Crown® automatically sets and adjusts the Type 2 to the right time when needed.
EFFORTLESS. MAGICAL. MECHANICAL. e-Crown® is activated and controlled by tapping the crystal on the dial of the Type 2, offering a new tactile experience and user-friendliness to mechanical watches. Visually, it is represented on the dial by the selector sub disc and its four modes (time zone 1, time zone 2, app and e-Crown off).
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS Driven by user experience, it combines the reliability of electronics with the emotion and beauty of mechanical engineering.
SET ONCE AND GO The Type 2 is manually set via the lever on its case back. By double tapping the crystal, the manually set time is digitally registered by e-Crown®. There is no need to think about checking and adjusting the watch anymore, e-Crown® does it automatically. Even after three months of inactivity, once the watch is fastened to the wrist and the wearer taps the crystal, e-Crown® will automatically set it to the right time.

On its release the e-Crown was the most talked about watch of the year, and for good reason. With the ability to set the time manually via the lever on the case back. Afterwards you just double tap the crystal and the e-Crown registers the time and maintains it. Even after three months of inactivity you can pick the e-Crown up, tap it twice on the crystal, and like magic it picks up where it left off!
