Botta-Design UNO Watch - the One-Hand Original Now in Titanium
Königstein im Taunus, Germany, December 01, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Klaus Botta designed the world's very first one-hand wristwatch back in 1986 - the UNO.

It has meanwhile become a design classic and triggered a wave of copycat one-hand watches by many other manufacturers.

The original UNO models were available only in stainless steel versions, with diameters of up to 44 mm. Botta-Design now presents a significantly smaller and lighter quartz model made of titanium, with a diameter of 40 mm. This new version of the UNO one-hand watch is recommended for people with medium to slim wrists: the UNO Titan one-hand watch.

- The display principle of the UNO one-hand watch: stripped down to the bare essentials

The UNO titan uses the same display principle familiar from the original UNO one-hand watch: it presents the time using a single hand, the hour hand, on a special scale subdivided into five-minute segments - rather like the speedometer in a car which uses just one indicator to show the speed.

Like a conventional watch, the hour hand in the UNO Titan completes one full rotation every twelve hours. It is possible to tell the time to an accuracy of 1-2 minutes by estimating the position of the slender needle between the five-minute segments.

The philosophy behind the original display principle of the UNO one-hand watch is all about simplification. It is very rarely the case that we need to know the time to the precise minute. In our everyday lives, a generous estimate such as "just after two" or "roughly half-past seven" is normally enough.

By presenting the time in this way, the one-hand watch principle allows a much more relaxed approach to time.

- UNO one-hand watch: lightweight thanks to pure titanium

Thanks to the use of high-tech titanium, the UNO Titan one-hand watch achieves an impressively low total weight of 32 g - including the leather strap. This means that the watch is hardly heavier than a standard letter in Germany (20 g). Although the 4.9 mm slim UNO Titan feels pleasantly light on the wrist, it is sturdy in design and solidly built. Extensive testing during the development phase resulted in a stable monobloc design being chosen for the case. This goes well with the stable, double-domed sapphire glass with scratchproof anti-reflective coating. As a result, the UNO Titan is one of the lightest and highest quality quartz watches on the market.

- Thought-out to the last detail

The sloped sides of the underside of the case allow the wearer's wrist outstanding freedom of movement. This special design makes the one-hand watch appear even slimmer.

At its thinnest point, the case measures a mere 2.9 mm. The case features an elegantly understated appearance and can be worn comfortably under close-fitting clothing.

The UNO Titan is the perfect complement to Botta-Design's collection of one-hand watches. Besides a 44 mm stainless steel version with RONDA quartz movement, models with a diameter of 42 mm or 44 mm are available. These are equipped with ETA 2824.2 automatic movements.

Botta-Design watches are manufactured exclusively in German specialist workshops and the movements used in them are "Swiss-Made."
