The primary focus during design of this one-hand watch was to achieve optimum readability: the narrow case border can accommodate a very large dial. Positioning the time scale right at the edge of the dial results in maximum resolution and therefore a highly precise time display. In conjunction with the extremely slim hand, the exact time can be read to an accuracy of just a few minutes. The strap lugs are positioned underneath the case, which makes the watch much more comfortable to wear, especially by people with slim wrists. The UNO is regarded as the original modern one-hand watch and remains today one of Klaus Botta‘s internationally most successful watches.
Botta-Design is introducing a new product variant: the “Black Edition”. Selected models will be subjected to a complicated procedure, which gives them an extremely hard surface of the sort normally found, for example, in professional tools. To protect them against wear, high-tech drills made of hardened steel are finished using the same technology as the watchcases in the Black Edition. This produces a surface, which is much tougher and more resistant even than the high-quality stainless steel and titanium cases, providing optimum protection against scratches and an extremely refined look.
