Revolution & The Rake magazines and Italian watch brand Unimatic have teamed up on a trilogy of collaborative limited editions, with the first of these – the Modello Uno GMT “Arctic Fox” – dropping tomorrow (28 December 2022, 10pm SGT / 3pm CET / 9am EST).
The all-white themed Uno GMT “Arctic Fox” draws inspiration from nature (snow camouflage is a survival strategy innate to animals like the Arctic owl, the Arctic fox and polar bear), the strictness of military uniforms and the idea of men’s fashion as an expression of positivity (in 2021, the color white symbolized positivity in the fashion industry, with Brunello Cucinelli using a palette of whites and creams to “replace fear with hope,” in the post- COVID environment). The timepiece features the screw-down crown, the drilled lugs, to the easy to grip and turn bezel.
Cerakote is a ceramic-based finish that is applied to objects such as high-end firearms to enhance their wear and corrosion resistance, and surface hardness. It is also used on high performance car and motorcycle parts including exhausts and turbochargers because of its extreme high temperature resistance. The bezel of the Modello Uno GMT “Arctic Fox” is coated in white Cerakote and a 24-hour bezel insert. The dial is also white but uses Super-LumiNova with thin black surrounds for the hour plots for easy reading. Similarly, the GMT hand features a black border. In combination with the highly legible raw aluminum bezel insert, it is a breeze to identify time in the second zone. The crown of the Unimatic and Revolution & The Rake watch is screw-down and assures that the U1 is water resistant to 300 meters.
The watch is fitted with the self-winding ETA caliber 2893-2 with 42-hour power reserve. The U1 measures 41.5mm in diameter and 11.6 mm in thickness and will be available with a total of three straps: a white snow camouflage NATO strap with steel keepers, a white rubber strap, and a gray pixilated camouflage strap. The latter two straps are each secured with a Cerakote white stonewashed pin buckle.
The Unimatic × Revolution & The Rake U1 GMT “Arctic Fox” is made in 150 examples with a retail price of EUR 1,500.
