Unimatic Unveils A Uniquely Beautiful 2-Layer Patinated Copper Dial Watch

Norwegian Rain, maker of some of the world’s best raincoats, marked their tenth anniversary in 2020. So to celebrate, they’ve teamed up with Italian watchmaker Unimatic on a unique dive watch that signifies the unending power of both time and the weather.

The Unimatic x Norwegian Rain U1-NR and U1-NRN are a pair of dive watches with first-of-its-kind dial construction. The watches possess a dial that’s made up of two layers of copper. The top layer consists of oxidized solid copper that has been weathered to a green hue. Cutouts at the hour markers reveal the dial’s bottom layer of bright brushed copper, making for a striking contrast between the same material at different ages. The dials here are certainly the standout, but the made-in-Italy watches also boast moderate 40mm case sizes, 300m of water resistance, sapphire crystals, a Seiko automatic movement, and minimalist black bezels. Available in brushed stainless steel on a bracelet or black DLC-coated stainless steel on a nato strap, both the U1-NR and U1-NRN are priced at $985.
