duo 24 black edition – 2 hands, 2 timezones

klaus botta invented the modern one-hand-watch uno back in 1986. while travelling through different countries, one thing became clear to him: "our world may be becoming smaller, but one boundary still remains – time."

before we contact someone in another time zone, we always find ourselves wondering what time it is there – is it early in the morning or late at night? will my call be a disturbance, or will it come just in time?

with the duo 24 klaus botta offers a really simple solution to this problem: being a dual one-hand watch, it shows both the local time and the time at one additional time zone, using just one hand in each case.

this is the simple yet amazingly logical principle which the duo 24 uses to give its wearer reassurance when dealing with different time zones.

the main display on the outside shows the local time. the striking 12-hour hand points to the specially developed one-hand scale familiar for more than 25 years from the uno.

the second time zone is shown, somewhat less prominently, next to the local time. the 24-hour numerical ring and the delicate hand are situated on a lower display level and are clearly separated from the 12-hour display. an artificial horizon divides the dial into a day half and a night half – making sure that unwanted alarm calls are a thing of the past.

the duo 24 is the ideal dual one-hand watch for anyone at home in two worlds.
