EMG’s new watch comes over the Horizon

EMG Horizon

It feels like an age since we reviewed the EMG Horizon, but the hotly anticipated square chronograph is finally in sight – with a Kickstarter campaign that starts today.

EMG’s new watch comes over the Horizon

EMG Horizon Chronograph Watch
A preproduction sample of the EMG Horizon – the final version has colour-coded subdials in this configuration

If you’ve not read our hands-on review, or if it’s been a while you can refresh your memory here. We liked the watch, feeling it was more than the Heuer Monaco homage we expected, and we liked the great choice of dial colours – especially the turquoise one we reviewed. The few niggles we had have mostly been resolved in the final production run, so we would not hesitate in recommending that you order one if you like the look of it.

EMG Horizon – Specifications

The Seiko VK-64 meca-quartz hybrid movement inside the watch gives the feel of a mechanical chronograph but with the convenience and accuracy of a quartz. There are a total of five dial colour variations, and early bird purchasers get a cool 5 watch roll in a custom cardboard tube. The waxed roll will be similar to the one pictured, but the colour is being changed.
