The Watch

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”. Each piece is unique and hand-manufactured in Milano, Italy.

Here we have an Unworn 2020 Unimatic x Massena LAB U1-ML6 made in collaboration with the William Massena New York City studio, this 1950s Dive watch inspired UNIMATIC is limited to 99 pieces. The 41mm stainless steel case curves in all the right places. A lug to lug length of 48.5mm and a thickness of 14mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, a signed screw-down crown protected by crown guards. Its 120 clicks uni-directional 60-minute dive bezel has a lume pip at 12 inside a red triangle. 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 goes from the original black to a tropical brown patina, the applied disc and baton indexes are framed in gilt and 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 the Greek god, Poseidon. The watch also pays tribute to World War II hero Alastair Robertson, an officer in the British Royal Navy. Who served as the navigator for the aircraft carrier HMS Ocean, whose ship’s crest was Poseidon. Inside an Automatic Seiko NH35A, 24 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The watch comes on a 22mm mahogany Horween Cordovan two-piece strap as well as a  black heavy-duty Unimatic nylon nato strap, with a buckle signed Unimatic. Comes with its UNIMATIC x Massena LAB tough case and papers.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold with its original Unimatic box and paperwork. The watch comes paired on its original unworn Unimatic strap with a spare strap in the box. The watch is from Circa. 2020 and is sold in unworn condition, as you can see from the photos. The watch comes with its original Manufacturer Warranty.

Personal Note


This release was an instant success and they sold out rapidly, people flocked to all the usual places to try and find them being sold on and a few here and there did, but it has fizzled out as almost all are now owned by hardcore collectors who wish to keep them, so finding an unworn example is a bit of a treasure!
