An Illusion

 

OTTICA

 

Is the display digital or analog, or perhaps both at once? Or perhaps like time itself, it is mere illusion? Ottica sublimates a mechanical complication into art. Are we speaking figuratively or abstractly? Ottica will reveal its secrets to its aficionados.

The hour jumps, punctually, every sixty minutes, thanks to a complex kinematic dynamic. Then the Wandering hour display indicates the minutes on the dial. With Ottica everything seems easy: its discs and circles make roundness an accomplished form of elegance.

THE DIAL

Here technique is allied to poetry. We’re speaking of the Wandering Hour display, a system that goes back to the 19th century and was used for clocks and pocket watches. Ottica is a modern interpretation of the invention which allows for easy readability and creates a vital elegance.

THE BACK

A special feature is on offer on the reverse side, affording the possibility of viewing the automatic movement through a sapphire crystal.

COMPLICATION

“Wandering Hour” has been continually improved, culminating in a patented mechanism, still hold by Vincent Calabrese, that led to the creation of Ottica. The apparent simplicity of the model is inversely proportional to its mechanical complexity.

OTTICA, TIME IS AN ILLUSION

When the elegance of the dial and caseback hold a secret.

Ottica is by nature both beautiful and mysterious. Its design is derived from mathematics, specifically from equations pertaining to optics (hence its name). You will see its dial disappear when you tilt it. It will remind you that all is illusion.
