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.
