Modello Due U2S-T-MP Titanium "Limited Edition"
While UNIMATIC has only been around since 2015, what the brand lacks in legacy it more than makes up for with a perfect blend of vintage-inspired style and sturdy, modern materials. Founded in Milan, Italy, by a couple of industrial designers, UNIMATIC has made a name for itself by crafting timeless, minimalist models, many of which are limited edition offerings. And they make every watch in Italy, each individually numbered, while using tried-and-true movements from Seiko and Sellita to keep them both affordable and reliable.
The Modello Due is UNIMATIC’s military-inspired field watch. And while it’s considered by some to be nearly perfect, the brand decided to tweak some of its properties to make it stand out even more. The result is this – the Modello Due U2S-T-MP.
To get here, UNIMATIC replaced the original model’s stainless steel case with a lightweight and nearly bombproof titanium one. And that case is not only 45% lighter but also thinner than the standard Due, thanks to the Swiss-made Sellita SW200-1 movement beating underneath the case back.
You get the same 300m of water resistance as the U2C, and a slightly smaller 38mm case size, but you get it with the added bonus of a dial and TPU strap dressed in a moody blue the brand calls “Blue Notte.”
But the best/worst part is that they decided to keep the production run to a mere 500 pieces, meaning you can get yours now… or never. We suggest the former.
