Italian watch brand Unimatic has expanded its renowned watch family by introducing a new Modello Quattro U4. Inspired and build for the military, it seamlessly blends the iconic Modello Uno case into a bolder, tougher aesthetic thanks to the Unimatic fixed bezel.
The new sleek 40mm case with its drilled lugs allows for faster strap change, contributing to the resilient feel of the watch, reminiscent of the military heritage with its 8mm diameter oversized crown. By combining the simplicity of the forms with the top level functionality, this timepiece is visually appealing as well as comfortable on the wrist. The Modello Quattro U4 is the most resistant reference from all its predecessors, able to handle anything thrown its way.
With its 300m diving grade water resistance U4-A is inherently superior, making it ready for whatever type of military or civilian manoeuvres you want to put it through. The first of its kind, Modello Quattro U4-A features a high legibility dial with enhanced contrast vintage black, off-white open second rail and trims, and Super-LumiNova® C3 pale green for better performance in any possible conditions.
The dial hosts two matching phantom ladder hands (for hours and minutes) and the vintage black reverse lollipop second hand with off-white tip. The flat sapphire crystal, enhanced with 7 layers of antireflection coating, provides best readability in every light condition.
Housed inside the 40mm solid 316 brushed stainless steel case of the U4-A is the automatic caliber Seiko NH35A 21600bph, with a power reserve of 41 hours. It comes on an olive drab heavy-duty Unimatic nylon nato strap with stainless steel brushed hardware signed Unimatic.
The screwed-in 2.2mm caseback features the Unimatic “Ground-to-Air Signals” engraving and the individual number. The watch is covered by a 24 months worldwide warranty.
The case of the new Modello Quattro is perfectly compatible with the Unimatic stainless steel bracelet.
The Unimatic Modello Quattro U4-A is available from 15 Dec 2020 with a retail price of 425 EUR excl.vat.
