Things become clearer when you reduce them to their bare essentials.
elementary philosophy is the basic idea behind our one hand UNO watch
with its astonishingly simple approach to time-keeping: the UNO makes
do with just one hand – the hour hand. This moves just like the hour
hand of any normal watch with several hands – in other words, every 12
hours it completes one full rotation.
The simplified dial
means that the one hand watch provides an approximate idea of the
current time at a glance (e.g. shortly before three o'clock). If a more
precise indication of the time is required, the five-minute gradations
on the UNO allow you to work out the exact time, accurate to more or
less one minute, by judging the position of the hand in between two of
the five-minute lines. The great strength of the UNO, however, lies in
everyday time-keeping and the fact that the time of day is shown "at a
glance" by an analogue and graphic representation of the day.
The primary focus during design of this one-hand
watch was to achieve optimum readability:

Positioning the time scale right at the edge of the
dial results in maximum resolution and therefore a
highly precise time display. In conjunction with the
extremely slim hand, the exact time can be read to
an accuracy of just a few minutes.
The strap lugs are positioned underneath the case,
which makes the watch much more comfortable to
wear, especially by people with slim wrists.
The UNO is regarded as the original modern one-hand
watch and remains today one of Klaus Botta‘s
internationally most successful watches.
