This independent micro watch brand was founded in 2015 by two Milanese industrial design students – Giovanni Moro and Simone Nunziato. Together, they came up with the idea for the Modello Uno, a minimalist limited-edition diver’s watch powered by an automatic Seiko movement.
Produced in strictly limited, never-to-be-reproduced runs and at extremely attractive price points (under USD 1000), it is no wonder that they have been hugely successful. Since the first Modello Uno, the brand has produced over 40 different collections.
Five interesting facts about Unimatic
All 99 pieces of the Unimatic x Massena LAB Modello Uno Ref. U1-Ml6 sold out in under a minute.
The brand offers a “Made to Order” service where customers can have their timepiece engraved by master engraver Stefano Muffolini.
Unimatic has collaborated with several external companies and designers, including NASA, Mr. Porter, Nigel Cabourn, and Mihara Yasuhiro.
The company has also created a humorous limited edition with SpongeBob SquarePants on the dial that comes on a yellow NATO strap.
All the brand’s watches are water-resistant to 300 meters.
