Pita, Barcelona

Pita is not as much a “Brand” as he is Mr. Pita. Mr. Ancieto Pita, is a self-taught watchmaker, living and working in the home of Gaudi, Barcelona. Mr. Pita and his son, Daniel, run a small workshop in Barcelona. Daniel handles the day to day business affairs and communications. Mr. Pita is the watchmaker and designer.

Mr.Pita is a member of the prestigious Academy of independent watchmakers, the AHCI. Mr. Pita prides himself on discovering new outlooks and innovations for his mechanical watches. The watches are all visibly fresh and smart. Each watch has it’s own unique set of complex innovations that appear simplistic through the dial, but are anything but. The “Oceana” is a dive watch that looks simple enough from first view. A closer inspection reveals that this dive watch, capable of super depths, is unique to itself with multiple unique patents to prove it. The Oceana features no winding crown. The winding crown is the most significant weak point on a waterproof watch. Mr.Pita has chosen to eliminate it, allowing the user the opportunity to set the watch via a unique,patented, setting ring at the bottom of the case. The Oceana uses an automatic calibre and ultra-thick convex lens. The Oceana has been produced in Stainless Steel, with a variety of finishes and combinations. The Oceana has also been produced in precious metal as well. We are all pleased to annouce that we our now delivering the Oceana 2000m and 5000m, in Titanium. No matter which version, a super dive watch for every adventure!

Keep your eyes peeled for more from Pita soon. Mr. Pita is developing a series of the”Molinos” for Fall release. The Molinos (Windmills) is a watch without traditional hands. Instead, are a series of gear wheels, integrated on top of the dial to form a mechanical derivation of “Hands”. A facinating watch that I will look forward to.

A great television interview and episode on Pita from Catalunya (TV-7)- of course in Catalan, the dialect of Catalonia!
