YUNIK Watches – Mechanical Tonneau, Quartz Tonneau and Large Round

After revealing its first round timepieces, showcasing murrines and Murano glass, the Delémont-based watch brand YUNIK has updated the collection with three new lines whose design is anything but conventional – with larger dimensions, tonneau forms, mechanical movements, and the mystery of murrines.

At Baselworld 2018 YUNIK presented three new collections of timepieces, each with the strong and distinctive identity of cases in Murano glass with a millefiori design.

These three collections comprise a large round watch with a 43 mm diameter and two tonneau-shaped cases measuring 38 x 42 mm, one with a quartz movement and one with a self-winding movement. Made in Switzerland, these quartz and self-winding movements are the guarantee of quality for YUNIK watches.

With their timepieces YUNIK reinvents the age-old technique of Murano glass, admired the world over since the 13th century. Crafting this glass requires immense expertise, a secret passed down from generation to generation. YUNIK has chosen it to create an entire case and dial in a single piece, with millefiori and other designs that make every single watch as unique as the person who wears it.

YUNIK Mechanical Tonneau
The second collection unveiled after the Midi ladies’ watch, the Mechanical Tonneau takes the best in Swiss precision and Italian design. The self-winding ETA 2681 movement drives hours, minutes and centre seconds. It fits inside a tonneau-shaped case with the crown at 3 o’clock. To wear it is to have the pleasure of a Swiss-Made quality mechanical timepiece. The 38 x 42 mm case sits elegantly on all wrists, both women’s and men’s.
