Why to buy: Since 1986, BOTTA has been standing for exceptional but consistently logical watch concepts. Especially the intuitive and decelerating one-hand concept is in the focus here. It sets a clear countertrend to increasing complication in our fast-moving times. All watches are handmade in Germany powered by Swiss-made Ronda quartz and ETA automatic movements. Thereby, innovative materials like the self-developed anti-allergenic Tri-Titanium are used.
BOTTA does not see sustainability as an attached label, but as an inherent value. All watches are characterized by both technical and design longevity. BOTTA does not undergo any fashion-related aging. Even after 35 years, the models from the year of the company's foundation still look as fresh as when they were conceptualized. This fact is substantiated by 65 international design awards. The watch straps are manufactured exclusively in Germany and Austria. In addition to the calf and saddle leather, certified organic leather is available. There are vegan alternatives made of natural rubber and stainless steel.
What we love: Deadline pressure and everyday stress often make forget what really counts: the moment. The time display of the single-hand watch NOVA reduces the display of time to the essential and gives its wearer back control and freedom of choice. Its time display consists of only two elements: an hour hand and a 12-hour scale. No further sub-scaling is used at all. The NOVA aligns the display of time to the wearer's needs and deliberately avoids details such as minutes and seconds. Like a sundial, the hand of the watch wanders across the dial and slowly moves its course. Whoever engages in this process will experience each day in a new and more natural way - without losing control of time.
The Nova is available in three colors as automatic version in 44 mm and as quartz version in 40 and 44 mm. The special case construction conceals the strap stops below the dial. Despite its diameter, the watch can therefore be worn on relatively narrow wrists. The sloped underside of the case also allows the wrist to move comfortably and makes the already very flat watch look even slimmer.
