CHECK ACTIVITIES

UNIMATIC supports FAI

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. 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.

Gilt dial

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.

Super-LumiNova®  application

 

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.

The Watch

 

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. Powered by the Sellita SW200-1 movement, it features a galvanic black dive dial with markers in Super-LumiNova® C1 white lume, which are accurately painted by hand on every piece, which is chosen to pay homage to traditional watchmaking and Italian craftsmanship, as opposed to the standard silkscreening or pad printing application.
