In June 2019, UNDONE announced the UNDONE Aqua BLK + YLW special-edition watch that was creative-directed by aBlogtoWatch founder Ariel Adams and worked on by the aBlogtoWatch team. Designed with a bold black and yellow color theme over a traditional diver’s timepiece, the successful UNDONE Aqua BLK + YLW watch will only be available through August 21st. All watches ordered before that time will be fulfilled, but as promised, UNDONE will no longer produce the Aqua BLK + YLW model after this date. Be one of the people who can enjoy this inspired wristwatch, now and in the future.
Adams describes the Aqua BLK + YLW as a satisfying design exercise that plays with our perceptions of what a tool watch can look like and also demonstrates how a timepiece can be attention-grabbing without being decadent or flamboyant. Adams chose Hong Kong-based UNDONE to produce the watch because of their dedication to making serious watches, at affordable prices, for people who want to have some fun on their wrist. The immediate feeling most people have when they hold the Aqua BLK + YLW in their hands is the weight. Despite the banana-yellow color of the case, the 43mm Aqua is all steel with a specific yellow Cerakote coating. Each case takes more than two weeks to prepare, given the special coating process.
“Over the last few months I’ve taken my personal Aqua BLK + YLW watch around the world and worn it both in the water and in social settings,” says Adams. “It has performed very well, is both comfortable and extremely legible. I’ve taken the watch swimming in the ocean and in fresh water, and have happily answered people’s questions about it in cities across five countries. What began as an idea in my mind turned out to be a great watch. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome, and I congratulate UNDONE for taking on this challenging product.”
Ariel Adams recently took the UNDONE Aqua BLK + YLW watch to the tropics and showed off the results here. In this article, you can vividly see how the watch performs as a diver and generally as a causal sport watch. People everywhere have enjoyed this innovative and distinctive black and yellow dive watch, which comes with a retail price of $580 USD. Order yours here before sales close on August 21, 2019.
