New Watch by Botta-Design
Today, we would like to present you the latest highlight from the Botta-Design development department: the ARGOS LUMEN wristwatch, which uses a patented illumination principle to enable perfect readability even in complete darkness, and without using any energy whatsoever.

ARGOS LUMEN
Perfect readability in every situation. Our objective when developing the watch ARGOS LUMEN was to make the watch as easy as possible to read, day and night. This goal is achieved thanks to the watch‘s clear and high-contrast display, which is divided into two sections: an inner hour ring with 12 numbers, and the outer minute and second scale with its 60 markings.


In addition, a globally patented illumination principle ensures optimum readability even in darkness. The entire watch face is coated with brilliant white and highly luminescent Superluminova, making the whole dial light up in the dark. A technical refinement additionally generates a shining aura around the hands: the rear sides of the hour and minute hands are likewise coated with Superluminova.

In bright light, the rear parts of the hands are charged with light reflected off the dial, so that they can then actively light up the dial in the dark. This additional light considerably improves the contrast of the hands, setting them off against the illuminated dial. Even after hours of complete darkness, this system of dual illumination guarantees optimum readability.

That is a very neat idea. I wonder if that could be done with a non-illuminated dial so that you simply have the backwards-glowing hands?
