In 2010, Botta-Design introduced a new product variant: the "Black Edition". These watches are made under 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 watch cases in the Black Edition. This produces a surface which is much tougher and more resistant even than high-quality stainless steel and titanium cases, providing optimum protection against scratches and an extremely refined look.

Things become clearer when you reduce them to their bare essentials.

This elementary philosophy is the basic idea behind our one hand UNO watch with its astonishingly simple approach to time-keeping: the UNO makes do with just one hand, the hour hand. This moves just like the hour hand of any normal watch with several hands, in other words, every 12 hours it completes one full rotation.

The simplified dial means that the one hand watch provides an approximate idea of the current time at a glance (e.g. shortly before three oclock). If a more precise indication of the time is required, the five-minute gradations on the UNO allow you to work out the exact time, accurate to more or less one minute, by judging the position of the hand in between two of the five-minute lines. The great strength of the UNO, however, lies in everyday time-keeping and the fact that the time of day is shown, at a glance, by an analogue and graphic representation of the day.
