The UNO+ Alpin is the somewhat larger (44mm) automatic version from the UNO series featuring a white dial. Its one-hand display principle is still exactly the same as that used in the original UNO one-hand watch invented by Klaus Botta in 1986, however.
The design of the display
The visibly enlarged dial of the UNO+ Alpin takes up almost the entire watch face. The higher resolution of the scale, which has been extended right out to the edge of the dial, thereby achieves even better readability.
The case design: a symbiosis of design and function
The UNO+ Alpin Automatic is the UNO design classic from Botta – brought to perfection. By increasing the diameter of the watch to 44mm and creating a slimmer case edge, the watch has an even more elegant and generous appearance.
Good design is about more than merely aesthetics. Apart from the sophisticated display, this is also evident in the special design of the newly developed underside of the case. The strap lugs are concealed beneath the dial to save space. Despite its considerable diameter of 44mm, the UNO+ Alpin can therefore also be worn on relatively slim wrists.
The sloped sides of the underside of the case allow the wrist much more freedom of movement, while at the same time enabling the air to circulate better. The unusual way in which the underside is designed makes this automatic watch – which at 8.8mm is already very flat – appear even slimmer.
The dual-domed sapphire glass rounds off the elegant lines of this watch. Anti-reflective coating on both sides gives a much clearer view and adds a refined bluish shimmer to the significantly reduced glass reflections.
The movement: refined, robust and reliable
Botta-Design has opted to use the ETA 2824.2 Swiss-made automatic movement, which is one of the most reliable mechanical movements available. In addition, the movement of every single UNO+ ALPIN spends several days being carefully adjusted for maximum precision by an experienced watchmaker.
Following manual assembly, every single UNO+ ALPIN one-hand watch then undergoes two independent test routines and several accuracy checks. Only once it has completed all the tests and checks successfully will the UNO+ ALPIN be shipped out to you.
