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 in wristwatches. They started Unimatic in 2015 with their first product “Modello Uno”.
Here we have the Unimatic U3-AN, a limited edition of 300 watches. Its 41.5mm 316L stainless steel case is DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated in a brushed black. A lug to lug length of 51mm gives the watch great wrist presence. On the right side, we have large screw-down pushers and a screw-down signed crown. Its 120 clicks uni-directional sterile bezel has only a lume pip at 12, a striking design choice. Double domed Sapphire crystal is AR coated on the inside helping to reduce reflections. The matte black dial has an outer minute track in gilt, disc indexes lume filled with Super-LumiNova old radium lume, giving it a vintage appearance mark the hours. At 3 o’clock a 24 hours register and at 9 o’clock the 60 minutes continuous register again finished in gilt. Broad phantom ladder hands filled with the same Super-LumiNova old radium lume and a black reverse lollipop second hand with gilt tip. On the reverse, a stainless steel screw-down case back with the Unimatic world timer engraving and the limited number out of 300. Inside Meca-Quartz Seiko VK64 which is both mechanical and battery-driven giving the chronograph that satisfying mechanical reset.

Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Unimatic box and Unimatic paperwork/accessories. The watch comes paired with its original black leather strap with its Unimatic black buckle. The watch is from November 2018 and has been worn over that time, but it remains in fantastic condition with no signs of wear throughout the watch. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
Unimatic, another brand with a huge following but also a watch brand that you either really like, or you don't. This is why I love Unimatic personally, they are creating watches with designs that are certainly a little different and a little risky, in a world of "same/same" watches, Unimatic is definitely a breath of fresh air in my opinion. Plus they are built great and look great, result!
