Avvent’Ora

WORLD CULTURES

 

AVVENT’ORA

 

Curiosity and a sense of adventure flow from the same source: the wish to discover new horizons. Avvent’Ora was conceived for those who will enjoy viewing the symbol of a different culture with every new hour.

AVVENT’ORA

 

On the dial a trapezoidal aperture opens between two hour indicators to reveal the cultural diversity of our world. The symbols of different cultures-Indian, Arabic, Japanese, English, German, Catalan, Latin and Greek-are displayed successively, the first hour indicated by the universally known zero.

THE DIAL

The Ora series models are jump-watches, but with a difference: in contrast to other mechanisms, it is the entire dial that indicates the changing hour by jumping thirty degrees. This patented mechanism is the only one of its kind and affords great readability. The dial is divided into twelve finely delimited sections.

THE BACK

One special feature is available in two versions: the automatic movement can be observed through a sapphire crystal, while the Quartz movement reproduces the entire array of the displayed symbols.

COMPLICATION

The first jump-hour displays were seen in the 17th century. The change of hours was effected by a disc under the dial, either as a gradual process or instantaneously. Instantaneous change is obviously a more difficult technique to master. As the height of virtuosity, the dial jumps to effect the change instantaneously on an immobile disc.

AVVENT’ORA, A REMINDER OF DIVERSITY.

The design belongs to the Classic collection-simple, balanced, with the accent on elegance and discretion. In Italian “ora” does not simply mean “hour”, but also “now”, the raison d’être of a lonely hiatus that defines the present moment and in which the various symbols alternate with the passing hours.

Avvent’ora possesses an internal beauty that is revealed with each new hour, thanks to the trapezoidal aperture on the dial. It is a journey of exploration in which the initiate proves himself, as with the discovery of “the other” in human relations.
