The slim Modello Uno U1S-FAI is a Made in Italy professional diving watch that belongs to a limited edition of 200 individually numbered pieces.

 

This special collaboration piece features a true silver gilt dial which is a traditional artisanal process used from the 1950s through the mid-1960s.
Black paint is galvanically applied preserving the logo area so that it negatively reveals the underlying material. The galvanisation process inevitably produces very slightly different resulting tones which makes every dial unique. Roughly 1 out of 5 dials are chosen and make it to the next step of the process.
After carefully picking the right dials the next step would be to apply the lume. Staying true to the old traditional techniques, Super-LumiNova® is applied by hand by a skilled craftsman with a small brush. Small imperfections are not attributed to a manufacturing flaw but to the uniqueness and quality of a dial which is entirely handmade.

 

Every watch comes with a card that offers a long list of benefits, such as free entry to FAI Properties in Italy as well as properties of the National Trust of England and Wales, Jersey, Scotland and Australia.
