At first glance, you might be confused as to how to tell time on the Ora Unica, but it's actually quite simple. Just look at the position of the inner end of the squiggle for the current hour, and the outer end for minutes. Simple, elegant, and truly unique.
36mm stainless steel case, leather bracelet and water resistant to 3ATM/30m.
The Ora Unica, designed by Denis Guidone for the Milanese Nava Design of Italy, is an accessory that takes fun of the time, for design lovers that make the imagination and the irony their distinguishing feature. A curious object not to pass unnoticed, a detail that Nava chooses for its spirit of irony. The design is clean and minimalist and finds its ultimate expression in the unconventional reading of time. It consists of a single line forming a graphic gesture (squiggle) where the two ends mark hours and minutes. The Ora Unica does away with conventional hands, and replaces them with a big squiggly line.
A watch with whirlwind hands that build a very unusual moving geometry to indicate time. (See the animation below).
Because not every timepiece has to be foreboding and serious, Denis Guidone's watches play with the traditional expectation of what a timepiece should be. Designed in collaboration with Italian product brand Nava Design, his four contributions, the Ora, Ora Lattea, Ora Unica, and Tempo Libero's unique feature unique design cues, signaling (sometimes with the use of traditional hands) what the time is. For example, the Ora Lattea uses dots, placed where a traditional hand would usually end, while the Ora Unica's squiggly lines ends go in place of hands.

I have been buying watches from Watches.com for several years...always excellent, from customer service, to delivery...easy returns, if needed.
Outstanding Customer Service.

I had an unfortunate thing happen with the links for two of the watches I ordered (the issue was with Nixon, not with watches.com just to be absolutely clear) and after being left stranded by Nixon I contacted Angela with watches.com who fixed the problem and was friendly and courteous the entire time. I would have 100% been busying the rest of my watches from them due to her efforts alone but on top of their customer service being outstanding, the products arrived on time and looked absolutely gorgeous when unpacked. 5 stars doesn't do them justice.

Great selection of watches, really good prices. Fast shipping is just as important to me when buying from someone. Watches.com has fast shipping, and good communications on that shipping. I would highly recommend watches.com to anyone who has a watch fetish. Thanks.

The price was so good that I was worried it would be something different than it appeared, but the watch was exactly what I had seen elsewhere for much more money. Great quality and excellent price. It was here lightening quick! I will definitely use watches.com again.
