Botta Nova 40 Quartz one hand 12-hour watch with ultra thin black PVD titanium case #579090AB

NOVA Quartz 40mm from BOTTA with a super-flat and ultra-light titanium case #579090AB-StrapL20b-b

The NOVA Quartz with 40mm titanium case is the one-hand watch for users familiar with the UNO principle developed by Klaus Botta in 1986. The NOVA takes the pared-down approach to displaying the time one step further. The dial is without any subdivisions whatsoever between the twelve hour lines. The space between two hour lines can be seen and immediately understood as a “timeframe”.


The NOVA Quartz 40mm has a total weight of just 32 grams, it is unbelievably light and with a height of just under 5mm you will hardly notice you are wearing it. This was achieved thanks to an ingenious case geometry but also through the use of high-tech titanium. This material combines extreme light weight with very high durability. The NOVA Quartz is synonymous with maximum reduction – in terms not only of its display, but also its slim dimensions and weight.


With its unconventional display principle, the NOVA Quartz one-hand watch is certainly not the ideal watch for precision fanatics and those who like to keep track of every second. However, the NOVA Quartz will thus suit you all the better if you are ready to embrace a more expansive attitude to time.


Thanks to its sleek appearance, the NOVA Quartz from BOTTA design is the ideal watch for anyone with a medium to slim wrist. Because the strap lugs are positioned underneath the case, it is as comfortable to wear as watches of much smaller diameter. You will have to decide for yourself whether the NOVA with its minimalist display is in fact the perfect one-hand watch. What is certainly the case is that it makes a clear statement in favor of a more relaxed approach to time.


The NOVA Quartz 40 is driven by a Swiss-made Ronda quartz movement. Unlike the cheaper “Swiss-parts” movements, the components in this movement are manufactured and assembled entirely in Switzerland. The original Ronda movement ensures that the NOVA Quartz will run smoothly and precisely for many years, which reflects the Botta principle of technical and design durability in its German-made watches.
