UNO one-hand watch: the original from Klaus Botta
Klaus Botta designed the first one-hand wristwatch of the modern era. Named the UNO, it has long since become a design classic. Over the past 30 years, the watch has been continuously improved in terms of both its design and its quality. Throughout all its evolutionary stages, however, it has remained true to its unique basic principle.
The UNO has never been more contemporary than it is now: in today’s hectic and fast-paced world, characterized as it is by sensory overload, it is the embodiment of simplicity – a product that has been reduced to its bare essentials. Thanks to the one-hand principle, the wearer can adopt a more relaxed approach to the passing of time.
First production model
Designer and pioneer of the one-hand watch: Klaus Botta
What is the right career for someone interested in a diverse range of subjects including technology, physics, philosophy, psychology, social sciences, design and future research? Klaus Botta only discovered the answer once he had completed his degree in physics: product design – which he sees as the perfect symbiosis of all these disciplines. And today he remains as enthusiastic about design as ever.
For Klaus Botta, products need to be logical and make sense. They should make life easier for the user, not more difficult. They should be as straightforward as possible to use. And they must be long-lasting – in terms of their material, their craftsmanship and their design.
winner of multiple design awards
No fewer than 58 design awards for Botta-Design bear impressive testimony to the design competence of the Königstein team. What many people do not realize is that Klaus Botta is not only passionate about watches, but also runs an internationally-renowned product design and development company. The focus here is on technical products that are likewise characterized – how could it be otherwise – by a clear design and intuitive operation.
As Klaus Botta explains: “Design should support function, not compete with it. Accordingly, functionality is always the starting point for our product design. The product should serve the user, not the other way around.”
Handcrafted in Germany
Made in Germany – Botta is a watch brand that is designed, developed and manufactured entirely in Germany. Alongside logical design and simplicity of use, Klaus Botta’s exacting quality standards constitute the third element that his watches must fulfil. Botta watches are extremely long-lasting, in terms of both their design and their quality.
Following manual assembly, every single watch undergoes several stages of testing and a number of functional and accuracy checks at the assembly workshop. In Königstein, every watch is then subjected to another visual and functional inspection and a second run test lasting at least 48 hours. Mechanical watches are additionally checked for accuracy in several different positions. Only once a watch has successfully passed all these tests and checks will it be shipped out to its new owner. This painstakingly thorough approach to assembly and the complex testing processes explain our extremely low complaint rate and a customer satisfaction rate of close to 100%.
Quality and service
Watches from Botta are synonymous with uncompromising quality in material and craftsmanship. The statutory warranty period ends after two years – but our after-sales service continues indefinitely. Even once the warranty period has expired, we will repair and service your Botta watch in exactly the same place where it was manufactured – at fair prices.
Our goal is your satisfaction with and enthusiasm for our watches. Any questions? Then give us a call in Königstein im Taunus:
