Ventura has won a Red Dot design award with its innovative SPARC MGS Automatic digital watch.
The watch is said to be "powered by human energy". It has a newly- developed mechanical device with oscillating mass functions just like in traditional watches, but a barrilet spring is applied to a micro-generator that transforms wrist-movements into electricity.
While this principle is not new with analogue watches, digital timepieces require much more power. Ventura invented a technical solution back in 2000. Development has since continued and reached practical application in the SPARC MGS multifunction watch recently released.
