German made BOTTA Design TRES 24 updated with new Swiss made movements, simplified dials and high tech TRI-Titanium cases.
Established in 1986 by product designer Klaus Botta, BOTTA design have spent more than 30 years developing watches with pioneering designs and extraordinary display concepts. Designed and manufactured in Germany from the highest quality materials, and powered by 100% Swiss Made automatic or quartz movements, BOTTA watches offer an alternative, yet intuitive way to mark the passage of time.
The BOTTA Design TRES 24 is possibly the most complex BOTTA to date. With its precision engineered three piece titanium case, 24 hour dial, and not one, but three hands! Ok, so with any other manufacture you wouldn’t find us getting excited by three hands on a wristwatch, but with BOTTA, who have spent more than 35 years producing the single-handed BOTTA Uno, this is extraordinary.
Despite this level of ‘complexity’, BOTTA’s TRES 24 is incredibly simple to read at a glance, because it follows the laws of time keeping logic – there are 24 hours in a day, that day is split into day and night, and a new day begins when the old day ends.
In delivering this incredibly logical concept to your wrist, BOTTA have divided the dial of the TRES 24 into two horizontal halves – the light coloured upper half running from 06:00 to 18:00 and the dark coloured lower half running from 18:00 to 06:00. The hour hand completes a full cycle of the dial in 24 hours, while the minute hand and running seconds indicator each make a full rotation of the dial within an hour and a minute respectively.
The unique day/night dial of the TRES 24 is available in a choice of black/green, black/orange and white/bordeaux.
For this, the second generation of the BOTTA TRES 24, the dials, hands, cases and movements have each been the recipients of some subtle and yet impressive upgrades. The dials and hands have been simplified and enhanced so that they’re easier to read. Fans of mechanical watches can now opt for a Swiss Made ETA 2893-2 automatic movement in their TRES 24. And the all new TRI-Titanium cases are now available in both 40 and 45mm sizes.
While the new dials and movement are undeniably exciting, the new TRI-Titanium cases are the part of this upgrade that grabbed our attention. Composed of three individual high-grade titanium alloys, the three threaded sections of the TRES 24’s case (the bezel, the midcase, and the case back) screw together to form an incredibly comfortable, allergen free structure that is water resistant to 5ATM, and available either in brushed titanium, or as a PVD coated “Black Edition”.
All of the new TRES 24 models are fitted with double domed anti-reflective sapphire crystals, and a choice of leather, rubber, or metal bracelets, which add to the premium feel of this handsome German watch.
Prices for the second generation BOTTA TRES 24 start at €498 inc. VAT for the 40mm quartz model on a leather strap, and top out at €1,980 inc. VAT for the 45mm Automatic on a Millanese bracelet.
