Votum – Swiss Made Automatic Watch Collection

Votum, one of the classic Swiss watch brands of 1960s is making its comeback, thanks to a revival project for the historic brand initiated by Rolf Bodmer (designer and graphic artist) from Zurich, and François Zahnd (watch manufacturer and watch industry expert) based in the city of Biel.
Votum was one of the mechanical watch brands that went into oblivion during the quartz revolution of 1970s. Thanks to new brand owners’ passion in traditional horology and today’s’ strong demand for mechanical watches, Votum will be available again in the market to satisfy the needs of mechanical watch connoisseurs.
Heritage - A Classic Votum Watch From 1960s
Presently the brand is running an online crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter for promoting its revival collection. Votum is offering four watch models – Heritage, New Classic, Elegance and Mechanical Date – from its re-launch collection that is available for pre-order on Kickstarter.
Heritage
The Heritage line takes inspiration from an original Votum Heritage model build in the 60’s. This classic watch, which features an unconventional design, comes in a 41.5mm stainless steel case and houses the ETA 2824-2 Swiss Made Movement.
New Classic
The New Classic model comes dressed in a stainless steel case measuring 41.5mm diameter and beats to the rhythm of ETA 2824-2 Swiss Made Movement.
Elegance
Elegance is an everyday wear wristwatch boasting the characteristics of both dress watch and a sporty watch. Equipped with a Sellita SW260 Swiss Made Movement, the Elegance model boasts a stainless steel case which measures 41.5 mm.
Mechanical Date
Major highlight of Votum re-launch collection is Mechanical Date model which comes with an innovative mechanical date bezel that never imagined and never used before. The Mechanical Date bezel allows the wearer to quickly adjust the date without the use of the crown.
Votum Divimat
The Mechanical Date model, which takes inspiration from 1960’s Votum Divimat timepiece, is equipped with a Sellita SW 221 Swiss Made Movement and comes in a stainless steel case measuring 42mm diameter.
Common features of the models include Sapphire Crystal front glass, Screwed caseback and luminous dial and hands. All timepieces are tested for a water resistance up to 100 meters. The timepieces come with a choice of stainless steel bracelet or genuine leather strap.
