In his most recent demonstration of expert layering and couture techniques, Mihara Yasuhiro has linked up with Italian minimalist watchmaker Unimatic on the Modello Uno U1-MY watch. Yasuhiro continues to create designs which juxtapose iconic elements in new undiscovered combinations, this time drawing on stone washing typically used in the denim manufacturing to create a worn-in, military feel timepiece.
The Unimatic’s first Cerakote™ coated case features a color palette that incorporates different shades of blues, paying homage to Mihara Yasuhiro’s design code. Notably, the ceramic coating, traditionally used on firearms, enhances a number of properties including wear, corrosion and chemical resistance, and hardness.
The Unimatic x Mihara Yasuhiro U1-MY watch goes on sale today, April 27, exclusively in Maison MIHARA YASUHIRO Stores, with a retail price of $875.
