TRES PAPYRUS automatic watch from Botta-Design
A classic three-hand wristwatch – but featuring a special design and particularly high quality. The clear structure of the high-contrast dial in the TRES PAPYRUS from Botta-Design allows optimal readability – even in the dark: the undersides of the hour and minute hands are coated with luminescent Superluminova. In bright conditions, the hands are charged with ambient light which they emit again when it is dark. This produces an aura of light around the hands.
Classic display with clean design lines
The differently coloured second hand makes it easier to distinguish between the hands at a casual glance. A small platelet the same colour as the dial is inserted by hand into the middle of the second hand, creating a striking circle around the centre of the hands. This is what gives the uncluttered look of the TRES PAPYRUS from Botta-Design its typical character.
The case: classic – with integral styling
With an external diameter of 42 mm, the TRES PAPYRUS is generously designed. Because the strap lugs are incorporated into the case, the watch can also be worn very well by people with medium to slim wrists, and will not appear bulky.
The stainless steel case comprises a perfect cylinder with tapered underside which reduces the absolute overall height of 9.8 mm to a visible side height of roughly 4 mm.
As with all current Botta watches, the TRES also features a high-tech scratchproof coating to reduce reflection and thereby ensure very good readability in all light conditions. The base of the watch is also made of high-grade sapphire glass, granting an insight into the elegant “engine room” of this design classic.
The high standards of the watch continue in the strap
The strap used in the TRES models is made of vegetable tanned cowhide Napa leather (produced in Austria). Discreet padding gives it a dignified appearance.
Light-coloured decorative stitching on the upper side completes the strap’s classic, high-quality feel. The blue stitching on the underside attaches the leather below to the covering leather above and symbolizes the strap’s high degree of water resistance. Naturally, any additional straps that may be required can be ordered directly from Botta-Design at fair prices.
A sophisticated display principle also deserves a high-quality movement. We have opted to use the ETA 2824.2 Swiss-made automatic movement, which is one of the most reliable mechanical movements available. This gives you the very best chance of still deriving great pleasure from your purchase even after many years. In addition, every single movement spends several days being carefully adjusted for maximum precision by a watchmaker – this is our way of contributing to your punctuality.
