Our world may be growing together, but one border remains – time.
The Duo 24 by Botta Design allows this border to be easily overcome. This is possible since the watch by the German manufacturer is the first time zone watch ever and based on the one-hand-principle. This might sound complicated, however, it is easier than guessed: As a double one pointer watch it displays the local time and another time zone with only one pointer. A simple but surprising logical principle enables a sovereign treatment of time with the Duo 24.
With that, the Botta Design Duo 24 watch is a watch for travelers that do not want to lose their connection to home, for people that have relatives living far away or simply for those that live in two different worlds.
Thee outlying main display shows the local time. Its striking 12-hour hand points to the same one-hand scale that has been used in the Uno for more than 25 years. The scale itself is mounted on a slightly inclined scale ring which guides the markings down to the lower-level 24-hour display.
The secondary display, which lies at a lower level in the dial, can show any second time zone the wearer chooses. Its delicate 24-hour hand and numbered scale are clearly distinct from the 12-hour main display.
An artificial horizon divides the display inside of the 24 hours area into day and night. Therefore, it is additionally possible to know the half day of both time zones.
