What makes Ventura So Different?
Ventura is creating a new breed of watches. With its credibility and expertise in traditional mechanical chronometers firmly established, Ventura now focuses on contemporary watches with electronic displays. The fact that they develop and manufacture their own movements makes them the only 'Swiss Manufacture Electronique'. Ventura timepieces are handmade with the attention to detail, precision and quality that have earned the Swiss watch-making industry its worldwide reputation. Ventura has set the pace with innovations such as the first 'automatic digital watch' SPARC®, their recent development of the Micro-Generator System built into the stunning SPARC MGS or EasySkroll®, their propriatory operating system for multifuctional devices. Exclusive tempered materials such as Durinox® and Titanox® give every Ventura watch an unmatched longevity. Add to this a unique font for the numerals on the electronic displays, created on advise of none less than Adrian Frutiger, the founder of modern typography. Finally, Ventura take all these assets to create a symbiosis of form, functionality and ergonomics to build resolutely modern timepieces.
MGS®: The Transformation of Centrifugal Forces Into Electrical Energy
1. MGS®-11 The owner’s wrist movements cause an oscillating mass to turn approximately 4000 times per day on average.
2. Gear Train The oscillating force is transferred to a precision gear with an attached Barillet.
3. Barillet The Gear Train tensions the spring of a Barillet about 17’000 times per day; each time the spring is fully tensioned, it realeases its force to a micro-generator.
4. Micro-Generator The Micro-Generator transforms mechanical momentum into electric energy and sends a spark (SPARC®) to an accumulator.
5. Accumulator The accumulator stores the electric energy and powers the Cal. VEN_10 movement.
6. Cal. VEN_10 Ventura’s exclusive caliber with its EasySkroll® operating and scrolling system is entirely operated by the wrist-movements of its owner.
