Unimatic-Modello-Uno-300m-Dive-Watch-7

Launching with the fittingly named Unimatic Modello Uno, this Italian micro-brand dive watch was something that stood out immediately for me with its minimalistic and utilitarian design – and somewhat mysterious origin… I say mysterious because if you visit their webpage, you’ll be greeted by nothing more than a handsome picture of the Unimatic Modello Uno, some technical specifications, and a button to purchase said watch.
