Details: VOLTA – Automatic watch series with mechanical indication of the level of tension of the mainspring

The VOLTA is a complex mechanical watch that shows the time of day, the day of the week, the date and the 24 hours as well as the power of the mainspring.

Alessandro Volta was an Italian physicist. He is considered one of the founders of electricity and the inventor of the electric battery.

The scales and hands of the VOLTA timepiece represent the design of a classic voltmeter. The indication of the power of the mainspring imitates the function of a battery indicator.

The 24 hour display has an equivalent design. It serves the distinction of day and night, also to correctly select the date switching point. Sunrise and sunset phases are shown as dimming up and down of an electrical light source.

The watch series is available in a Vintage and a Modern version. The Vintage version has an aged dial and antique hands. The Modern version has matte monochrome dials and simpler hands and symbols. Slim bar hands in contrasting colours ensure a good readability. The second hand is overly long and colored in low contrast to the dark dials, so as not to overload the entire image visually.

The movement is a 28,800 A/H high freqzency movement (4 HZ) mounted on 26 rubies. Once the watch is fully wound it has a power reserve of < 40 hours without further kinetic energy supply. The watch has a diameter of 43 mm and is 12 mm thick.The watch glass is made of sapphire.

In total there are 5 colour combinations. The cases made of 316L stainless steel are silver or yellow gold plated (IPG + real gold). The leather straps are made of roughened light brown leather (vintage) or black or blue matt cowhide (modern). Both variants are equipped with a KronSegler emblem and a butterfly folding clasp

The watch is delivered in a dark green box with a certificate card, a 20-page booklet with a detailed description and a polishing cloth.
