Introducing the new Delbana Rotonda

The Rotonda collection concludes a year of new mechanical timepieces to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Delbana. This ode to the brand’s heritage represents commitment to affordable luxury with special attention to historic and modern details.

T

he Delbana Rotonda takes inspiration from the Latin word rotunda, used to describe buildings with a circular ground plan, often covered by a dome. Seen in architecture from the beginning of civilization, these impressive structures have always represented wealth and strength.

From early architectural marvels like the Pantheon in Rome and fortified towers of Switzerland’s Chillon Castle to modern day marvels such as the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, the shape of the circle gives a unique perspective from inside and out.

The Delbana Rotonda entices the wearer to admire fine details on a much smaller scale. The captivating black guilloche pattern in the center of the dial contrasts the silver perimeter similar to a skylight giving visibility to the stars and beyond.

Providing a new interpretation of a similar model launched in the 1950’s, which stood out for its distinctive black center, the Rotonda is enlarged for contemporary enjoyment and appointed with new details. The applied indexes and cathedral shaped hands are accented with powerful luminous highlights. A black genuine leather strap completes the design.

The elegantly curved and polished stainless steel case is consistent with the other special 90th anniversary timepieces, the Recordmaster and Della Balda, all powered by a Delbana engraved automatic movement. The new Rotonda is a timeless tribute to Delbana’s heritage and future, to be enjoyed and relied on by anyone who aspires to greatness.
