Avvent’Ora

Our openness, on different levels, to the world and to other people is reflected in Avvent’Ora, a watch which at every hour displays the symbol of a different culture.  The passing hours become a journey of discovery.

THE DIAL

The watches in the Avvent’Ora series combine traditional hour indicators with an ingenious complication that allows us to view a new symbol with each new hour. While displaying the time, the jump-hour mechanism reminds us of the diversity of the world, a combination of two different functions that testifies to the watchmaker’s technical mastery of his art.

COMPLICATIONS

The uniqueness of this watch lies in the utilization of two complex mechanisms—the first indicating the hours with traditional hands, the second turning the dial with its trapezoidal aperture, thereby revealing the succession of cultural symbols. This latter complication, the jump-hour function, turns the dial by 30º every hour in order to display one of the chosen symbols.

THE BACK

Two types of casebacks are available: one—for models with an automatic movement— which affords a view of the mechanism through an aperture of synthetic sapphire crystal, the second—for models with a Quartz movement—which displays the entire array of the selected symbols.

AVVENT’ORA, A REMINDER OF DIVERSITY.

A trapezoidal aperture on Avvent’Ora’s dial allows us, with each new hour, to view the symbols of diverse cultures from around the world.  These symbols lie between adjacent hour indicators, successively becoming visible as the dial turns with the passing minutes.

A great variety of cultures is represented—Greek and Latin, as well as Japanese, English, Arab, Indian and Catalan.  As for the zero, the universal reference point, it takes its place at the top of the dial by way of inviting us, with each new hour, to renew our journey from the very start.
