To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the UNO concept, Botta-Design are offering a special edition of their design classic, limited to just 100 watches.
The automatic model with a 44mm stainless steel case is available now for pre-order at a special advance purchase price. All models are numbered consecutively from 1 to 100.
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 mat dial. The platinum-coloured minute division corresponds exactly to that used in the original UNO design. The polished raised hand is a new development. The height of the case was also adjusted by +0.3mm because of the additional space required by the appliqués.
The rotor in the anniversary edition of the UNO Automatic is specially engraved. This is where you will find your individual model number that makes your anniversary UNO unique.
You have the choice between several high-quality strap versions. A hand-made dark-grey full-grain leather strap, a smooth, black Nappa leather or rubber strap or an elegant mesh strap are available for this special model.
All special anniversary models are individually manufactured and assembled by hand in Southern Germany in the order in which orders were received. Please allow for a delivery time of 3-4 weeks following the official start of shipment. Your patience will be rewarded when you take delivery of one of just 100 select and unique watches with a hand-signed certificate from the designer Klaus Botta.
The anniversary edition of the UNO Automatic is without doubt the most elegant and high-quality UNO model that Botta-Design have ever created.
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 anniversary UNO spends several days being carefully adjusted for maximum precision by an experienced watchmaker.
Following manual assembly, every single anniversary UNO 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 pearl black anniversary UNO be shipped out to you.
