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:

I receive my U2 yesterday and really like the watch. I was worried the dial might be to minimalistic but I really like it. I live the shape of the case especially how the dome crystal blends in with the bezel of the case. I enjoy looking at the side profile of the watch a lot. The size is just right for the design of the case. If they had made the watch diameter bigger it would have forced the lugs out more causing overhang. The lugs don't slope at all so they are straight lugs that help make he watch appear bigger. Crown is nice and beefy with good grip. Bead blast finish is nice and works better than the brushed finish from the 1st run imo. If anyone is on the fence I say jump in and get one. You won't regret it. I can't stop looking at the darn thing.

yea, it's surprising the quality you get for a reasonable price.

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.

I really like these, but I absolutely, positively don't need another watch.

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.

Like the white dial, but they should have put the bezel from the first one one it.
That would work for me too but I'm not over keen on the hands.
As for double posts, I've found if the submit button highlights in blue just be patient, wait, wait and wait a little longer, it'll post eventually :thumbsup:
