The Botta-Design online shop features a range of high-quality wristwatches, wall clocks, straps and gift vouchers. The wristwatch section is divided into two categories: automatic watches and quartz watches. Among other things, the Botta-Design online watch shop contains the UNO collection of one-hand watches – designed by Klaus Botta back in 1986 – alongside modern and particularly slim watches made of titanium or stainless steel.
Extremely slim wristwatches use the advantages of quartz technology. As compared to mechanical movements, the ultra-compact design of modern quartz movements takes up far less space. Such slim watches achieve a particularly elegant appearance thanks to their slender dimensions – close-fitting garments such as shirt cuffs slide easily over watches of this type, making them extremely pleasant to wear.
Slim watches from Botta-Design are light-weight yet robust. Right from the first sketch of the original idea, great care is taken to ensure that these development objectives are achieved: slim wristwatches from Botta-Design are not only designed to be incredibly light and elegant, but also extremely comfortable to wear and highly durable.
In order to be able to develop sufficiently slim gentlemen’s watches, designers need a very thorough knowledge of the technical structure of watch cases as this is the only way they will be able to achieve a case that makes optimal use of its thickness.
Watches from Botta-Design are genuinely as slim as their technical specifications claim. Other manufacturers of supposedly slim watches often do not state the height of the watch as a whole – for example ignoring the thickness of the case bottom when indicating the total height.
The slimmest wristwatch in the Botta-Design range is the Helios. Thanks to the specially designed case, the watch appears even slimmer than it actually is: the visible edge of the watch is just under 2.5 mm high – added to this is its incredibly low weight of just 30 g (including leather strap), achieved through the use of titanium. The watch’s total measurable height is a mere 4.9 millimetres. This puts this watch way ahead of the rest of the field, making allegedly slim wristwatches from other manufacturers seem bulky by comparison.
Botta-Design makes its slim gentlemen’s watches as flat and lightweight as possible – winning the Solus and Helios series models a number of design awards. Besides the RedDot Design Award, the Helios series has for example received the Good Design Award, the IF Design Award and the Spark Design Award, and has also been nominated for Germany’s Federal Product Design Award.
