Italian watch brand Unimatic chooses titanium for the two new unique editions – Modello Uno U1S-T-MP and Modello Due U2S-T-MP. As a natural evolution of the Unimatic design process, the use of an advanced material such as grade II titanium allows a better mechanical stress resistance with an almost 45% weight reduction when compared to stainless steel.
These qualities reflect in the two references that are weighing less than 62g for the Modello Uno and 58g for the Modello Due without straps, with a noticeable difference from the similar steel editions, providing enhanced comfort for everyday use and a warm feeling on the wrist due to the low thermal conductivity of the titanium alloy.
Presented in a timeless colorway merging the BLU NOTTE (night blue) with the warm grey hues of the sandblast titanium case, with accents in silver for graphics and trims completed by white markers in Super-LumiNova®BGW09 glowing in blue.
Time is displayed thanks to the matching phantom ladder hands set and the reverse lollipop second hand with Super-LumiNova®BGW09 white luminous tip.
The double domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal provides the best performance in every light condition and together with the lightweight titanium sandblasted case, the screwed-in caseback, the 8 mm diameter crown together with the high-quality gaskets set provide water resistance tested individually to 30 atm=300m=1000ft.
Timing accuracy is guaranteed by the Swiss-made automatic caliber Sellita SW200-1 movement tuned to 28,800bph with 38h power reserve and hacking second hand.
Both references come on a blu notte TPU two-piece strap with titanium sandblasted hardware signed UNIMATIC and an extra blu notte nylon seatbelt strap. The caseback features an acid-etched engraving and the individual progressive number.
These watches are covered by a 24-month worldwide warranty and are part of a unique edition of 500 pieces per reference.
