Made in Italy, Unimatic was founded by Giovanni Moro and Simone Nunziato. They were both trained as industrial designers at “Politecnico di Milano” where they shared a common interest and passion in wristwatches. They started Unimatic in 2015 with their first product, “Modello Uno”.
Our 2018 Unimatic Modello Uno U1-DWN is limited to 150 pieces. The 41.5mm brushed 316 stainless steel case is coated in DLC black satin finish. The case tapers towards the 48mm lug to lug for a comfortable fit on the wrist. On the right side, is a screw-down crown with crown guards. Between the lugs at 6 o’clock an engraved Unimatic U1. A unidirectional sterile bezel with the characteristic pip at 12 o’clock has fine knurling to aid in grip. The double domed sapphire crystal is AR coated on the inside. A striking white dial has an outer minute track, large disc, and baton indexes outlined in black are lume filled with Super-LumiNova C1 White marking the hours. Broad phantom ladder hands filled with the same Super-LumiNova C1 White lume, completing this Italian-designed and Swiss-inspired dive watch. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with an Unimatic conversion scale engraved into it. Inside an Automatic caliber Seiko NH35A, 24 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted on a heavy-duty Unimatic black NATO strap with a signed buckle and also comes with its original Unimatic presentation box and papers.
Unimatic has produced many black watches and will no doubt continue to do so, but this one with its white contrast really pops and looks incredible on and off the wrist! If you are a fan of black watches and have never owned one, this would be a great choice to begin and see how you get on! Better yet, book an appointment and come try it on for yourself.
