Ventura watches as fashion accessory

Ventura watches are the coolest watches going around. The digital ones comes with 12 or 24 hour format setting, perpetual calendar with setting of 3 formats, chronograph 24H/M/S/100“-Sec, countdown 24 hour, display back light, EasySkroll® operating system and are water resistance. Ventura’s Kappa featured here was designed by Swiss architect, Hannes Wettstein, and was one of the last timepieces that he designed. Wettstein took Ventura’s watches in a new direction by de-emphasizing its place as a fashion accessory and re-emphasizing elegant functionality. The models below show this new mindset. v-tec Sigma, created by Paolo Fancelli was recently featured in the motion picture Bangkok dangerous with Nicolas Cage.

Alfred Brodman, Bo Hansen and Günter Wermekes were original designers for Ventura and they influenced the entire world of luxury watches. Bo Hansen’s watch design now sits in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York.
