A limited edition of 100 pieces, the ref.U1-GM diver watch is born from the collaboration between Unimatic and Grimoldi Milano. It’s the first Unimatic ‘Destro’ left-hand watch.
Reflecting the visual codes associated with the marine world, orange was chosen for both the dial and the TPU strap, for an optimal readability and great visibility even underwater.
The U1-GM embodies the essence of the professional diving watch of that era, the clean lines of the Modello Uno are a tribute to the historic Grimoldi store in Portofino, underlining the prestige of Made in Italy and highlighting the Italian cultural heritage.
Grimoldi Milano is a family-run business since 1960’s located under the arcades on Piazza Duomo in Milan. It has always been a symbol of the Italian artisanal production of watches and jewels.
Carrying on the tradition, Grimoldi is continuing to invest in the search of innovative shapes and original designs. It is one of the first Unimatic retail partners worldwide.
Modello Uno ref. U1-GM is the Made in Italy professional diving watch. It features an International orange dive dial with markers in Super-LumiNova® BGW9 white lume matching the lumed dot on the matte gray aluminium professional diver insert and a cool gray open second rail and dial trims.
Time is indicated thanks to the matte black phantom ladder hands set and the black reverse lollipop second hand with white tip. The double domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal provides the best performance in every light condition.
The solid 316 brushed stainless steel case, the screwed in 2mm thick caseback, the 8mm diameter crown together with the high quality gaskets set provide a water resistance tested individually to 30 atm (300m/1000ft).
This timepiece is driven by the NH35A automatic movement. Its beats at 21,600 b.p.h and provides 41h power reserve.
The watch comes on an International orange TPU two piece strap, an extra black Unimatic nylon Nato strap with stainless steel brushed hardware signed Unimatic. The caseback features the Unimatic x Grimoldi engraving and the individual progressive number.
