DUO – The dual one-hand watch from Botta-Design
Our world may be growing together, but one border remains – time.
The DUO dual time zone watch puts you in control when dealing with this border. A dual one-hand watch, it shows both the local time and the time in one additional time zone, using just one hand in each case.
This is the simple and amazingly logical principle which the DUO from Botta-Design uses to give its wearer reassurance when dealing with different time zones.
DUO – The first dual time zone watch to employ the one-hand principle
The outer main display (black external ring) shows the local time. Its striking hour hand points to the same twelve-hour scale that has been used in the UNO one-hand watch for more than 30 years. The scale itself is mounted on a slightly inclined scale ring.
The inner scale below it (at the grey centre of the dial) shows any second time zone the wearer chooses. Its delicate black hand and 24-hour numbered scale employ the 24-hour one-hand principle to display the second time zone.
An artificial horizon divides the inner 24-hour section into a day half and a night half for easier orientation in the second time zone.
The DUO is the dual one-hand watch for anyone who is at home in two worlds but likes to set themselves apart from the mainstream.
The watch case: architectural clarity right down to the tiniest detail
The stainless steel case of the DUO from Botta-Design has been designed to look as flat and inconspicuous as possible. Thanks to the clever use of sloping edges, it appears to be merely a flat disc on the wearer’s wrist. With its integrated lugs, the watchstrap is discreetly attached beneath the housing to save space.
The entire watch case features an entirely functional design yet gives the impression of a sculpture that you will want to admire from every angle. Both DUO models from Botta-Design are fitted with flat sapphire glass.
To reduce reflection and improve readability, the DUO – like all Botta watches – is equipped with scratchproof coating on both sides. This high-tech surface treatment, familiar from high-quality optical lenses, transforms hard reflections into a transparent bluish shimmer, lending the entire watch an elegant and high grade feel.
The movement: high-quality, accurate and absolutely reliable
The DUO models are driven by a Swiss-made Ronda quartz movement. Unlike the much cheaper “Swiss-parts” movements, the components in this movement are manufactured and assembled entirely in Switzerland.
The original Ronda movement ensures that the DUO will run smoothly and precisely for many years, which reflects the Botta principle of technical and design durability in its German-made watches.
