About ventura Established in 1989, ventura set out to abandon the idea that design is an empirical expression. A focus on content, genuine construction, functionality, and above all a visualization of watchmaking craft has enabled ventura to create honest products where the form is a result of the process.From the beginning, ventura co-operated with established designers and in 1994, Hannes Wettstein, a young Zurich designer at the time, put forward his proposal. His thorough approach and architectural background enabled him to challenge traditional methods of conception. Rather than proposing a design as such, Hannes put forward a detailed specification. The aesthetic appearance of the watch would be defined by the functional, technical and material characteristics.
The properties of the pure titanium would determine the form. The dial layout should be functional, reduced to its essential elements.
The only item to be left undetermined was the watch's price; the aim was to produce a watch from the best materials, free from any cost pressures. This unconventional approach allowed Hannes to create a truly honest watch. Model Case diameter: 41 mm. Material: Hardened titanium - PVD coated.
