Womens synchronised diving at the Rio Olympics, 2016.
The L1 was originally manufactured in 1937 and was designed by Jac Jacobsen, the Norwegian designer and founder of Luxo.
I love watches and divers watches in particular, but in looking for a vintage style automatic mechanical divers watch I was tired of all the Submariner and Seamaster homages to be found in the divers watch market.
Unimatic is a fledgling Italian brand that doesn’t borrow it’s history from Rolex or Omega but endeavours to earn it’s own heritage through the conception and production of short run limited edition, beautifully, solid, and honestly designed, fit for purpose watches.
And I just got my hands on one of the last few from a total edition of 300 Unimatic Modello Uno dive watches.
The special Luisviaroma.com edition of the Unimatic Modello Uno, is limited to ten pieces, comes on a beautiful vintage Italian leather strap and there are very few left so if you want one, waste no time and snap one up for yourself right now…!
