The Geneva-based VCXO watch brand has come up with its new Ox One watch that has a ‘Magic Button’. This button at the side of the watch can synchronise time with the data that is received through GPS technology. A report on says that the Magic Button is set at the side of the watch and when the wearer activates it, the GPS chip inside the watch will receive data from satellites and set the time on the watch.

The report also says, “The GPS chip is designed to keep track of the time even if the automatic movement runs out of its 120 hours of power reserve. Therefore, once its owner breathes new life into the mechanical movement, upon pressing the ‘Magic Button’ the time will be set to the exact time that is in accordance with the last known location’s setting, even if there is no GPS-data received.”

The watch is 46mm wide and 9mm thick, which is made for easy wear. It is also waterproof (up to 30 metres) and has a black ceramic butterfly clasp. It displays hours, minutes, seconds, and date and is powered by a battery. Though the company is not ready to share all its technical details, the watch is sure to create a wave in the market.
