The ARGOS Automatic is the perfect symbiosis of functionality and clarity. The time display was consistently developed in accordance with the principles of ergonomics and perception psychology. Its design and form are perfectly in keeping with the watch’s function – the ARGOS Automatic boasts outstanding readability – even at a casual glance.
The automatic ETA 2824.2 movement is a solid foundation for a mechanical watch. With its 25 ruby bearings, Incabloc shock protection system and a power reserve of up to 40 hours, the movement is robust, long-lasting and well-equipped for everyday use. Our master watchmakers spend several days giving the ETA 2824.2 Standard something it does not come with of its own accord: maximum precision.
Every single calibre is adjusted by hand in six different positions. By the end of this process, the deviation is approx. -0/+15 seconds per day. It then takes roughly two to four months of everyday use for the ETA calibre to settle down. During this time, the deviation changes and becomes slower so that every calibre in a Botta-Design automatic watch will permanently run very evenly and constantly.
Design and graphics remain entirely faithful to the watch‘s function and achieve a state of Bauhaus-style functionalism. The view of the movement through the sapphire glass base is particularly enticing.
