BOTTA Design: Celebrating 35 Years of the UNO

Established in 1986 by product designer Klaus Botta, Königstein based BOTTA design have spent more than 30 years developing watches with extraordinary display concepts and pioneering designs. Designed and manufactured in Germany from the highest quality materials, and powered by 100% Swiss Made movements, BOTTA watches provide a simple, intuitive alternative to the complexity of modern horology.


This focus on simplicity and ease of use underlined the creation of BOTTA’s first watch, the UNO, which in 1986 introduced the concept of single-handed timepieces to the modern world, and to the calm, clean, minimalistic style of the brand.

To celebrate 35 years of the classic UNO, BOTTA have released the UNO 35 Edition – a sporty, 44mm PVD coated, stainless steel limited edition UNO, with stunning black or white dial, bold red hand and luxurious red stitched saddle leather strap.

Introducing the BOTTA UNO 35 Edition

Available in just 35 pieces per dial colour, the BOTTA UNO 35 Edition is the result of 35 years of continuous development of the original UNO design. Constructed from 316L stainless steel, the unique slim case design with its beveled underside and integrated lugs offer extreme comfort on the wrist. Whilst the double-domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides, and scratch resistant coating on the outside ensures a clear view of the bold minimalistic dial and striking single red hand.

Turning the UNO 35 Edition over reveals a sapphire display back mounted into a stainless steel movement holder, and a decorated ETA 2842-2 Swiss Made automatic movement. Embellished with a specially designed black rotor engraved with the UNO 35’s limited edition number, and hand regulated by master watchmakers for maximum accuracy.

Production of the BOTTA UNO 35 Edition is limited to a total of 70 pieces, so if you’d like to pick up the ultimate iteration of this one handed classic, the time is now.Explore the BOTTA design collection now at Montredo.
