UNIMATIC x ESERCITO

UNIMATIC presents a new limited edition watch collection as a tribute to the Esercito Italiano — the Armed Forces of the Italian Republic.

The Modello Uno ref.U1-PA and the Modello Uno ref.U1-PAN are respectively a limited edition of 300 pieces characterised by a brushed stainless steel case, and a limited edition of 150 pieces with a distinctive black DLC finish case. They are a tribute to the Paracadutisti, the Italian army’s infantry corps paratroopers.

The paratroopers’ badge is represented on the dial at six o’clock, reproducing two stylised wings, surmounted in the centre by a parachute whose ropes meet at the convergence of the wings. At the centre of the wings, one can also see the five-pointed star that stands for the values of the Esercito.

The ref.U1-PA and U1-PAN blend sleek design and scrupulous attention to detail through a matte black high-readability dial, through compass bezels allowing for navigation calculations, and a 300m diving grade water resistance.

These watches are powered by the NH35A automatic movement, which beats at 21,600bph and offers a 41h power reserve.

They come with a new camouflage woven according to the jacquard technique NATO strap characterised by a unique pattern inspired by the Vegetato, nominally the camouflage characterising the uniforms of the Italian Army. Alongside with it, comes a spare black heavy duty NATO strap. The case-backs feature the UNIMATIC x ESERCITO engraving and their individual progressive number.

On the other hand, the new ref. U4-TA is developed in praise of the Comando Truppe Alpine, in charge of the Mountain Troops of the Italian Army Alpini — elite mountainous forces that are the oldest mountain infantry still active in the world. They are trained to perform logistics, move artillery, and fight in mountainous terrain. Historically famous for defending the Italian borders along the Alps, they are strongly embedded in the Italian culture and national pride.

Featuring a matte foliage green dial with an added Truppe Alpine logo, the U4-TA is a perfect disguise for both the battlefield and the urban jungle. With its 316 stainless steel sandblasted mono-block case, the Modello Quattro is a more resistant reference than all its predecessors, able to withstand all sorts of stress.

Housed inside the 40mm stainless steel of the U4-TA is the automatic caliber Seiko NH35A movement tuned to 21600bph, with a power reserve of 41h and a hacking second hand. It comes on a foliage green TPU two-piece strap with stainless steel sandblasted hardware signed UNIMATIC.

The caseback features the UNIMATIC x ESERCITO engraving and the individual progressive number within the limited edition of 200 pieces.
