To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the UNO concept, Botta-Design are offering 3 special editions of their design classic.
The quartz model shown here features a 44mm stainless steel case. All anniversary watches are consecutively numbered. You also have the choice between a pearl white or a pearl black dial, and various strap types are available. Besides the 44mm stainless steel model, there is also a 40mm version in a titanium case, likewise with a Ronda quartz movement, or a special UNO+ Automatic version – of which only 100 watches will be manufactured – in a 44mm stainless steel case with the Swiss ETA automatic movement 2824-2.
Botta-Design: the special 30th anniversary edition of the UNO
It goes without saying that the layout of the time display corresponds exactly to that used in the first UNO one-hand watch from the year 1986. The anniversary model boasts significantly more sophisticated features, however. For instance, the pearl black dial is adorned with twelve machine-polished precision appliqués. The discreetly reflective hour markings and hand provide just the right contrast to the silk matt dial. The platinum-coloured minute division corresponds exactly to that used in the original UNO design.
The use of the tapered appliqués required the hand and upper part of the case to be designed especially. Thanks to the clever geometry of the UNO case, however, the anniversary model also features an extremely flat and elegant appearance. As with all UNO models, the watch is amazingly comfortable to wear.
The stainless steel bottom of the 44mm quartz model was likewise completely redesigned. This is where you will find not only the special anniversary marking but also the watch’s individual number.
The anniversary edition of the UNO is without doubt the most elegant and high-quality UNO model that we at Botta-Design have ever created.
The movement: high-quality, accurate and absolutely reliable
The quartz version of the anniversary UNO+ one-hand watch from Botta-Design is 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 anniversary UNO+ will run smoothly and precisely for many years, which reflects the Botta principle of technical and design durability in its German-made watches.
