Re: New Unimatic models are up

At this price point I don't feel too guilty grabbing a couple. No need to agonize over a ~$500 decision :lol:
I will likely sell the white dial and try the Green DLC at some point though.

Re: New Unimatic models are up

Maybe available here?

August is not too far away, so might be worth ordering directly with Unimatic and waiting :shrug:
I am pretty sure they will sell out altogether before too long.

Re: Trip to the AD: IWC, Tudor, Heuer... a choice to make

I love pretty much all the 3777 variants.
Just to add more potential choices, has anyone seen the IW377713 in person yet?

I really like the blue Petit Prince model, but that silver dial MKXVIII is superb.

Re: New Unimatic models are up

If anyone is too impatient to wait for these to become available again in August, there is a store that has them online now:

https://www.woawstore.com/search?q=unimatic

The link was shared on Unimatics Facebook, and they appear to be a Hong Kong fashion retailer (ship for free also) :thumbsup:

Re: New Unimatic models are up

The dial printing is very clean and crisp, and the lume plots are also very even and cleanly applied.

Lume has not been applied very thick however, and so is not particularly bright or long lasting. Not one for the lume fiends that's for sure

So I have been thinking and scheming a bit :think:
What would happen if I bought a U1-D and did a sneaky bezel swap :excited:

Re: New Unimatic models are up

I had a bracelet from a previous model, but they are not available any more I don't think..
Not sure if they will ever bring the option back but it would be good.

All models were initially available in May, but the first batches went really fast - second round available in August.

Re: New Unimatic models are up

The U1-x does wear way bigger than 40mm FYI.

Bezel is wider @ around 42mm. It is a really nice case design, finishing is similar to the level found on a Seiko SRP, so not high end but nice enough.

Seiko NH35A movement. Price depends on model: around 485-585 Euro +Shipping (50 Euro for me to Australia) The website has taken a pounding (it was difficult to get an order in), and now there is a Hodinkee article up by Jason (some nice pics too), so expect even more pounding I guess :lol: https://w...

Re: New Unimatic models are up

Oh and I also like the first 2 models (top left). It is a great case design. ( I have ordered a white dial actually) .
The 2 black dialed DLC models are not bad either I think :thumbsup:

Re: 2500 C

I think you have three choices: 1) Buy a 'C' that's been serviced and brought up to snuff. 2) Buy an unserviced 'C' at a price that leaves enough $$$ for a service. 3) If the cost of option 2) is close to the cost of a 'D' then buy a 'D' and avoid the hassle. That pretty much sums it up. I had the ...
