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 Unimatic U1-NR is number 40 of a limited edition of 54. The watch collaborates between Unimatic and Norwegian Rain, a rainwear apparel brand based in Bergen, the rainiest city in Europe. Celebrating ten years of the brand, they wanted to capture a moment in time that encapsulates the essence of who Norwegian Rain stands for. A 40mm 316 stainless steel case coated in brushed black DLC tapers towards the lugs with a subtle curve for a comfortable fit on the wrist. On the right side, a screw-down crown with crown guards. Between the lugs at 6 o’clock, you find an engraved Unimatic U1. A minimal 120 Click unidirectional bezel has a single lume pip at 12, a signature of Unimatic. The 2.5mm thick double domed sapphire has an AR coating on the inside. The dial is a first of its kind made up of two layers composed of an individually oxidised solid copper layer graduating to a unique green and blue hue with cutout hour markers showing through the brushed copper base. Skeletonised ladder hands are made of brushed copper with a reversed lollipop centre seconds hand. The dial is sealed by a proprietary technique to preserve the unique process. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with engraving celebrating the collaboration and the ten year anniversary of the brand. Across the centre the number out of 54. Inside an Automatic calibre Seiko NH35A, 24 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted with a heavy-duty Unimatic NATO strap and a signed black DLC buckle. Comes with a unique branding pelican case and papers.
