Ventura invented the Automatic Digital Watch in 2000. The movements of the wrist activate a rotary mass which relays the momentum to a micro-generator; the electric energy gained in the process continuously feeds an optoelectronic time-module. The Micro-Generator-System of the new SPARC MGS was developed to achieve maximum performance. Placing the MGS side-by-side next to the time-device enabled a larger and heavier oscillating mass. This array also permits the viewing of the mechanism from the top, giving the SPARC MGS its characteristic appearance. The miniature power-station sustains a state-of-the-art micro-processor and a 250-segments 12-digit liquid-crystal display. The latest operating system EasySkroll v.2.0 allows later upgrades, another first in wristwatches. The multiple functions of the SPARC MGS are intuitively operated by a single scroller.

1. MGS®-11 - The owner’s wrist movements cause an oscillating mass to turn approximately 4’000 times per day on average.
2. Gear Train - The oscillating force is transferred to a precision gear with an attached Barillet
3. Barillet - The Gear Train tensions the spring of a Barillet about 17’000 times per day; each time the spring is fully tensioned, it releases its force to a micro-generator
4. Micro-Generator - The Micro-Generator transforms mechanical momentum into electric energy and sends a spark (SPARC®) to an accumulator
5. Accumulator - The accumulator stores the electric energy and powers the Cal. VEN_10 movement
6. Cal. VEN_10 - Ventura’s exclusive caliber with its EasySkroll® operating and scrolling system is entirely operated by the wrist-movements of its owner

Ventura is creating a new breed of watches. With its credibility and expertise in traditional mechanical chronometers firmly established, the Ventura of today focuses on contemporary watches with electronic displays. The fact that they develop and manufacture their own movements makes them the only 'Swiss Manufacture Electronique'.
The timepieces are handmade with the attention to detail, precision and quality that have earned the Swiss watch making industry its worldwide reputation. Ventura has set the pace with innovations such as the first automatic digital watch, SPARC®, the most recent development of the Micro-Generator System built into the stunning SPARC MGS or EasySkroll®, the propriatory operating system for multifuctional devices. Exclusive tempered materials such as Durinox® and Titanox® give every Ventura watch an unmatched longevity.
Add to this a unique font for the numerals on the electronic displays, created on advice of none less than Adrian Frutiger, the founder of modern typography. Finally, they take all these assets to create a symbiosis of form, functionality and ergonomics to build resolutely modern timepieces.
