Luxury manufacturer of hi-tech quartz and mechanical watches created a new technologically advanced model. The Ventura SPARC MGS watch will be presented on the forthcoming watch show in Basel.
After the withdrawal from the watchmaking industry in 2007, Ventura made the quick come back, headed by its founder Pierre Nobs. Swiss watchmaker has continued to produce luxury and innovative timepieces, combining modern, minimalist design with its renowned technology.
Ventura planes to make the most of the biggest watch fair on the World, Baselworld 2011, in order to promote new timepiece with brand’s trade mark – MGS (Micro Generation System). Just like the more famous Seiko Kinetic technology, MGS combines the best from both, mechanical and quartz movements. However, new Ventura SPARC MGS is the first watch that uses this technology to power a digital display.
MGS is based on the energy from the body motion, which turns an automatic rotor and further supplies a spring. When it’s fully tensioned, spring adds the energy to the micro-processor, witch generates electric energy for a quartz digital movement. This mechanism has an amazing power-reserve, which guaranties that will keep running 45 days after you take off your SPARC MGS.
Easy Scroll system
Maybe all this sounds too complicated, but in practice, Micro Generation System functions very smoothly, providing a lot of advanced features. New SPARC MGS watch comes with the Easy Scroll System, which is, in fact, an advanced navigation, controlled by the movement of the wearer’s wrist.
This system provides easy use of a perpetual calendar, two alarms, chronograph and countdown features. Also, you can choose between 12 or 24 hours formats and 3 date formats, on your LCD display.
Scratch-proof hardened stainless steel case is made of two parts – the upper part is transparent and shows rotor and micro-generator, while the lower part of the case has a black digital display. Both parts are covered with the sapphire crystal. Stunning design of the SPARC MGS is exactly what we expect from Ventura watches – modern look, uniqueness and gentle touch of artistry. The Ventura SPARC MGS watches come in two variations (with black or silver case), with either a black rubber or silver stainless steel band.
