Made in Italy Unimatic was founded by Giovanni Moro and Simone Nunziato, who were both trained as industrial designers at “Politecnico di Milano” where they shared a common interest and passion for wristwatches. They started Unimatic in 2015 with their first product “Modello Uno”. Each piece is unique and hand-manufactured in Milano, Italy.
Here we have a 2020 Unimatic U1-MLM Massena Lab made in collaboration with the William Massena New York City studio, this 1950s Dive watch inspired UNIMATIC is limited to 200 pieces. This is their second collaboration together. The 41.5mm stainless steel case curves in all the right places. A lug to lug length of 49mm and a thickness of 13.5mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, is a signed screw-down crown protected by crown guards. Its 120 clicks uni-directional 60-minute blue dive bezel has a lume pip at 12. A 2.5mm thick double domed sapphire crystal AR coated on the inside protects a unique dial. Each dial goes through a galvanised process that results in various shades of deep blue, the applied disc and baton indexes have hand-applied Super-LumiNova Old radium, giving them their vintage aesthetic. Broad phantom ladder hands coated in the same luminance are complemented by a reversed lollipop tapered sweeping second hand. On the reverse, you find a very detailed engraving of an Anchor which is a nod to the French Naval tradition. Inside an Automatic Seiko NH35A, 24 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The watch comes on a 22mm blue heavy-duty Unimatic nylon nato strap, with a buckle signed Unimatic and also comes with its UNIMATIC x Massena LAB tough case and papers.
We have sold multiple Unimatics and multiple watches in collaboration with Massena Lab, all have gone down very well just as they did originally at retail, this one will likely be no exception! The design and the blue tone is perfect and beautifully done, this is an easy one to digest for those unsure about Unimatic and potentially the perfect gateway into the brand.
