NOVA plus Automatic Alpin
44 mm // stainless steel // Automatic690,00 €
The NOVA plus with 44 mm stainless steel case, features a display comprising two elements: a scale divided into twelve segments and an hour hand. It intentionally dispenses with any further subdivisions. While the hour hand inches its way across the dial, at a speed not perceptible to the human eye, it uses the twelve segments one by one to give a graphic indication of the current hour.
Like an hourglass, the NOVA plus from BOTTA design presents the passing of a defined period of time – in this case one hour – rather than the many small intervals that happen in the meantime. A clear explanation of the one-hand principle can be found here.
Naturally, it is simply not possible to tell the time to the precise minute with the NOVA plus. As such, this one-hand watch is predestined for people ready to adopt a relaxed attitude to time.
The puristic design of the NOVA plus draws the attention of the observer to the one most important thing: the time.
Only the essential outer area of the dial and the striking green hand are visible. The centre of the dial and of the hand – which is not needed to display the time – is covered by a circular disc that lends the watch a futuristic and floating appearance. With its diameter of 44 mm, the very flat case is the larger of the two NOVA models from BOTTA design featuring a Swiss-made quartz movement.
At 44 mm, the NOVA plus is the larger and somewhat heavier stainless steel version of the NOVA models featuring a quartz movement.
With its unconventional display principle, the NOVA plus one-hand watch is certainly not the ideal watch for precision fanatics and those who like to keep track of every second. However, the NOVA plus will thus suit you all the better if you are ready to embrace a more expansive attitude to time.
You will have to decide for yourself whether the NOVA plus with its minimalist display is in fact the perfect one-hand watch. What is certainly the case is that it makes a clear statement in favour of a more relaxed approach to time.
The quartz version of the NOVA plus is 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 NOVA plus will run smoothly and precisely for many years, which reflects the BOTTA principle of technical and design durability in its German-made watches.
