Ventura Sparc MGS® Watch

Ventura Sparc MGS® black
Ventura Sparc MGS® silver

The inventor of the Automatic Digital Watch introduces another significant advancement: The multifunctional SPARC MGS®, which contains two separate Manufacture movements. While the mechanical Micro-Generator-Sytem (MGS®) transforms wrist-movements into electric energy to power the digital time-module, the ingenious EasySkroll® operating system governs the multiple functions, such as the 100-year perpetual calendar or dual time zone, alarm, countdown or chronograph, in a most intuitive way by a single scroller. The ergonomic architecture of this unusual timepiece was awarded with the international Good Design price 2011 in Japan.
