Among high-end watch connoisseurs, Ventura is well known for its mechanical chronometers made of hardened titanium.
Ever since its establishment in 1989, the Ventura collection always contained a digital element. This design attribute is epitomized by a digital watch design by Danish designer Flemming Bo Hansen, which has become a classic ever since it was added to the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1990.
At the turn of the millennium, Ventura made a historic impact with its introduction of the world's first self-winding digital watch SPARC, still the only watch of its kind on the market. Ventura meanwhile specializes in the manufacture of sophisticated digital timepieces and has emerged as a market leader in this niche of Swiss-made luxury watches.
Ventura introduced the world’s first automatic digital watch sparc in the year 2000; the revolutionary movement caliber ven_99 has no battery; wristmovements engage a rotary mass to drive a micro-generator that produces the required electric energy. Hannes wettstein was commissioned to give this technology a face; his sparc px is a reverence to the very first ventura timepiece «watch flemming bo hansen» created in 1989, now part of the permanent design collection of the museum of modern art new york and numerous other museum-collections. Following the philosophy of «watch», the sparc excels by its simplicity, showing only time and date. The crown enables the setting like on any ordinary wristwatch and additionally activates the micro generator.
