Helios Watch Series
Winner - Bronze
Designer: Klaus Botta & Ingmar Boos
Design Type: Product, Timekeeping
Company / Organization / School: Botta Design
The core intent for the design and construction of the HELIOS was to make a wristwatch as flat and lightweight as possible. Additional requisitions were ideal readability and highest wearing comfort. The extreme flatness of the housing has been archived by using an especially flat, swiss-made quartz-clockwork (Ronda 1009, 1,9 mm) and many hours of tweaking in the range of tenth of millimetres. Choosing Titanium as material for the housing enabled the little weight of 28 gr, without compromising its stability. Designing the body of the watch without any exposed components improved the wearing comfort in addition to the flatness and the little weight.
