Evaluation

We were impressed by this watch's unique concept and technology, which enables it to run everything - from the display to the backlight - using power generated by a mechanical rotor. Features such as the exquisitely designed movement - which easily lives up to the challenge of full visibility-and the single-scroller control give eloquent expression to Ventura's watch-making philosophy.
