BOTTA design Presents NOVA, a Minimal Mechanical Watch

BOTTA design NOVA – a minimal mechanical watch

„It seems that perfection is attained, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.“ True to those words by famous French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Klaus Botta has introduced a puristic minimal watch that excels by its lean yet stylish design: the NOVA mechanical time-span watch.

With the NOVA, Klaus Botta, the pioneering maker of single-hand wristwatches, has made a big step towards his notion of reduction.
While the classic UNO watch with its hour hand and its special 144-marking dial still allows for making out minutes, the NOVA Automatikc strives for an even more consistent approach.

Spans of Time, Not Points in Time

The watch face comprises two main elements: an hour hand and a 12-hour scale. There are no subscales.
While the hand slowly moves over the dial, it turns one of the 12 segments into a visual representation of the current hour. Just like an hourglass, the NOVA shows the course of a precisely defined time period-in this case, one hour-rather than the numerous little points in time that meanwhile pass by.

Back to the Natural Flow of Time

Of course, the NOVA does not allow for down-to-the-minute indication.
Wearers of the NOVA will, however, get into the flow more easily rather than run after minutes and seconds.

A Generous Wristwatch with a Clear-Cut Face

The NOVA’s puristic design draws the beholder’s eye right to the essence: time.
Only the important edge area of the dial and the prominent green hand are visible while the central part of the dial is hidden behind an opaque circle applied to the back of the sapphire glass. The watchcase with a height of just 8.8 millimeters (which is ultra-flat for a mechanical watch) and a diameter of only 44 mm in total emphasizes this effect.

Form and Function in Focus

Great design is not just a question of appearance. This is why BOTTA design pursues a consistent „form meets function“ approach. Therefore, the case back was designed with greatest attention to functionality, too.
The lugs are hidden below the case back. Therefore, despite its diameter of 44 millimeters, the NOVA is perfectly suitable even for the slender wrist, giving it maximum room to move thanks to the beveled edges of the watch-case back. At the same time, this design ensures sufficient air circulation. Thanks to this extraordinary case-back design, the watch, being just 8.8 mm in height, looks even flatter.
