Undone's Basecamp 2.0

Post by AtomicTom » Thu Oct 17, 2019 9:02 am

Did you guys by chance see Undone's Basecamp 2.0 already?

The Hong Kong based company is celebrating it's 5th anniversary by
upgrading the original model with 100m WR, and K1 mineral crystals.
But then have even added new California dial options. With all of the
new watches still having 40mm cases, neat dial, bezel, and strap
options, along with the Seiko NH35a there powering everything.

Have some pictures right here...

This one has potential, but the hour hand and date just don't work for me.

I like Cali dials - that one looks like it might be quite small on a 40mm watch with that bezel.

Also is a "K1 mineral crystal" still just a mineral crystal?

Pretty much. Here is some info:
K1 is a treated glass which has a higher scratch resistance than mineral glass but still is prone to scratch. The glass is also prone to breakage if it falls or hits an object. Once your glass is scratched or breaks there is not much you can do to remedy this other than replace the glass.

Love how with this one there is something for everyone, and if there
is something we don't like, we can just go for another option. :) It's so
interesting hearing more about the K1 crystals too by the way Terry ! :salute:

Sounds like something in between mineral, and sapphire.

THX again !

I think I might get one even though I just wear my Apple Watch nowadays. I really like the look of the black cali dial one. It also seems to have it's main crystal be a nice warm Lexan acrylic and the bezel crystal is mineral. Wish they put a slightly nicer movement on there and made it $400 but not gonna complain.

Same. We’re just older and grumpier.
I hope all is well with you.
