What We Know

In May, Unimatic introduced the Series 8, a collection of four Modello watches in different colorways inspired by Italian locales. Now, the final colorway has been unveiled: black. The four watches in this edition are Modello Uno, Modello Due, Modello Tre, and Modello Quattro. All watches feature a matte black dial with gilt accents and are produced in a limited edition of 400 pieces per reference.

What We Think

Unimatic’s watches always stand out with their unique designs, and this black colorway is no exception. The minimalistic look combined with warm lume and gilt accents sets these watches apart. They pay homage to the vintage divers that inspired Unimatic while maintaining a contemporary feel. If black isn’t your style, the olive green and navy blue colorways are still available.
