Worn-In Militaristic Watches

Unimatic & Mihara Yasuhiro's Modello Uno Watch Features Stone Washing

— May 1, 2019 — Fashion
Unimatic and Mihara Yasuhiro work in conjunction on the new Modello Uno U1-MY timepiece which carefully lends couture design with layering techniques. The exterior features unique combinations, which is highlighted by the special stone dyeing process that is often found during denim manufacturing methods.

It gives the design an overall look that evokes a militaristic essence as if it has been worn in. This is Unimatic's inaugural case coated in Cerakote and delivered a color palette that showcases various hues of blue. This honors Mihara Yasuhiro's design language as well -- the ceramic coat is notably used on firearms. This gives the wear, corrosion, as well as the hardness and chemical resistance much stronger. The new Modello Uni U1-MY watch is now available for purchase.
Trend Themes
1. Stone-washed Design - The use of stone dyeing process in watch design creates a worn-in militaristic look, offering opportunities for fashion brands to incorporate unique combinations in their timepieces.
2. Cerakote Coating - The use of Cerakote coating in watch cases provides enhanced wear, corrosion, and chemical resistance, presenting opportunities for manufacturers to explore durable and long-lasting materials in their designs.
3. Collaborative Couture - Collaborations between fashion designers and watch brands lead to innovative timepieces that merge couture design with layering techniques, inspiring partnerships between different industries to create unique and stylish products.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - The fashion industry can explore stone-washed designs and collaborative couture partnerships to create unique and stylish watch collections.
2. Manufacturing - The manufacturing industry can capitalize on the use of Cerakote coating in watch cases to enhance durability and chemical resistance, presenting new opportunities for watchmakers to incorporate innovative materials.
3. Design - The design industry can take inspiration from the stone-washed aesthetic and layering techniques used in watch design to create bold and unconventional designs across various products and sectors.
