The UNO 24 NEO one-hand watch gives the wearer the chance to approach time in a completely new and far more conscious manner.
It presents the entire day at a glance. During the course of each 24-hour period, the single hand of the UNO 24 NEO completes just one full rotation.The watch’s special scale means that each time of day is indicated by an individual position of the precise hand.Even a fleeting glance is sufficient to show the wearer instantly and clearly how far the day has already advanced.
A delicate line marks the point of transition from one day to the next. The moment the watch hand crosses this line, the date jumps forward to show the new day.
In other words, the UNO 24 NEO indicates the course of the day in analogue form: The positioning of the watch hand on the dial corresponds to the position of the sun in the sky.

What is more, the precise scaling means that the time of day is shown with an accuracy of around five minutes – after a short period of familiarization, the wearer will be able to tell the time even more precisely. The real strength of the UNO 24 NEO, however, lies in its simple yet impressive ability to present “an entire day at a glance” in a precise, analogue graphic form.

“Things become clearer when you reduce them to their bare essentials.”
Klaus Botta developed the UNO one-hand watch in line with this philosophy back in 1986. Ever since, he has been considered the inventor of the modern one-hand watch – and the pioneer responsible for inspiring a whole series of one-hand watches made by other manufacturers.
Klaus Botta has been designing and creating wristwatches for clients like Junghans AG, Bestform and Watch People since 1986. Botta-Design wristwatches have already received 50 renowned design awards, both in Germany and abroad. Some of them are exhibited in the Chicago Museum of Architecture and Design and the Museum für angewandte Kunst (Museum of Applied Art) in Frankfurt.
Watches from Botta-Design are characterized by a concentration on the bare essentials. The salient design features of every Botta-Design wristwatch are functional clarity and a high degree of technical aesthetic which is underlined by the choice of materials and the precision of the workmanship.
