For September 2019, the monthly giveaway here on aBlogtoWatch is the Unimatic Modello Uno U1-DZ Limited Edition watch. The Italian-based brand has been making minimalist but design-oriented tool watches for some years now, and it has gained a reputation among enthusiasts for its limited-edition offerings. The U1-DZ brings a matte olive colorway to the dive watch collection, and the winner of the giveaway will receive one of the 400 pieces being produced. The matte olive dial and bezel are matched with an olive NATO strap, as well as a camouflage-pattern strap.
The Unimatic Modello Uno U1-DZ is utilitarian and purposeful in its design and execution, boasting high legibility, as well as 300M water resistance. The Modelo Uno U1 case has seen several iterations, and the specs here remain unchanged. The stainless steel case measures 41.5mm-wide, 13.6mm-thick, and has a lug-to-lug measurement of 49mm. The unidirectional bezel has 120 clicks that inspire tactile satisfaction each time.
The phantom ladder-shaped hour and minute hands are done in off-white (as are the indices and tips of the lollipop seconds hand) for fantastic legibility against the matte olive-colored dial. The off-white dial aspects are also coated in Super-LumiNova. And to ensure maximum legibility in bright conditions that cause glare, the 2.5mm-thick domed sapphire crystal is applied with anti-reflective coating on both sides.
The large crown is easy to grip and use when adjusting the time. The Uno Modello U1-DZ has a hacking seconds feature, and the NH35A automatic movement allows for bi-directional manual winding, as well. This movement operates at 21,600 vph and has a weekend-long power reserve of 41 hours.
Turning the watch over shows an enclosed caseback with the number of each watch engraved. The enclosed caseback, in addition to the screw-down crown and build quality of the case and gaskets, allows for the 300M water resistance.
The Unimatic Modello Uno U1-DZ comes on a 22mm nylon NATO that matches the matte olive color scheme, while the additional Unimatic silicone rubber strap with custom SS signed buckle is done in a camouflage pattern to change up the style.
