The 40mm UNO 24 is the 24-hour one-hand watch from Botta-Design. It presents the entire day at a glance, allowing the wearer to adopt an entirely new approach to the time of day. Each day, the precise hand completes just one full rotation of the specially-developed 24-hour scale.
A delicate vertical line between the centre of the dial and the “12” at the top marks the transition from one day to the next. As soon as the hand crosses this line, the date jumps forward to show the new day.
The UNO 24 one-hand watch shows the passing of the day in analogue form, the positioning of the watch hand on the dial reflecting the sun’s position in the sky. The watch allows the time to be told to an accuracy of roughly five minutes – and even more precisely after a brief period of familiarisation.
The real strength of the UNO 24 one-hand watch from Botta-Design, however, lies in its simple yet impressive ability to present the entire day “at a glance” in a precise analogue graphic form.
The watch case: architectural clarity right down to the tiniest detail
The stainless steel case of the UNO 24 one-hand watch from Botta-Design has been designed to look as flat and inconspicuous as possible. Thanks to the clever use of sloping edges, it appears to be merely a flat disc on the wearer’s wrist. With its integrated lugs, the watchstrap is discreetly attached beneath the housing to save space.
The entire watch case features an entirely functional design yet gives the impression of a sculpture that you will want to admire from every angle. All UNO 24 models are fitted with flat sapphire glass.
To reduce reflection and improve readability, the UNO 24 – like all Botta watches – is equipped with scratchproof coating on both sides. This high-tech surface treatment, familiar from high-quality optical lenses, transforms hard reflections into a transparent bluish shimmer, lending the entire watch an elegant and high grade feel.
The movement: high-quality, accurate and absolutely reliable.
The UNO 24 models are driven by a Swiss-made Ronda quartz movement. Unlike the much cheaper “Swiss-parts” movements, the components in this movement are manufactured and assembled entirely in Switzerland.
The original Ronda movement ensures that the UNO 24 will run smoothly and precisely for many years, which reflects the Botta principle of technical and design durability in its German-made watches.
