Most watch brands can only do so much by just changing the color and theming of their timepieces. Unimatic, however, is no ordinary watch brand. The Italian firm has been perfecting the art of minimalism for nearly a decade with its beautiful limited editions and exclusives, and has been playing with its own proprietary template ever since it debuted in 2015. Now, it teams up with retail curator Huckberry for a set of limited-edition versions of its U4 Modello Quattro dive watch.
Dubbed the Earthform Collection, it consists of three individual models — with only 75 pieces released of each — inspired by America’s National Parks and the elements found in their natural landscapes. Sporting 40mm matte-blasted stainless steel cases with 300m of water resistance, all three references feature the same Swiss movement and dial layout. However, what changes here are the colors of the dials, TPU straps, and hour markers.
Inspired by the El Capitan summit at California’s Yosemite, the Lichen model features a light green strap with matching hour markers and hands over the gray textured dial that resembles the granite found in the park. Meanwhile, the Sandstone model takes after Antelope Canyon and the Grand Canyon in the American Southwest. The watch features an orange-red dial with a matching strap and white hands and hour markers. Lastly, the Redwood model takes after its namesake forest in the Pacific Northwest and the Pacific Crest Trail that runs through it. As such, the dial is a forest green with a lighter colored green on the hands, markers, and strap. Unlike the black indices on the other two variants, this version has indices that match the hour markers.
Sporting co-branding with Huckberry on the caseback, as well as the edition number, the Unimatic U4 Earthform Collection is available now on Huckberry for $1,057 each.
