The Unimatic U1-B, An Italian Tool Watch of the Highest Order. No box or paper for this piece. Will come with the Original Nato Strap, not included is the leather strap in the photo.
Unimatic isn't just a small brand, it's in fact one of the smallest. The Italy-based company produces extremely limited series of sports watches and is the brainchild of two industrial designers, Giovanni Moro and Simone Nunziato. Though theyve only been in business for since 2015, the pair have managed to create a buzz not only because of their watches ultra-minimalist aesthetics, but also because of (or despite) their minimalist approach to marketing them.There is a well known aphorism that says that design perfection is achieved not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
