After celebrating SpongeBob Squarepants’ 20th anniversary, Italian watchmaker Unimatic is back with a new collaboration alongside British designer Nigel Cabourn, who is well known for his modern interpretation of the vintage army aesthetic. The result of the project is a limited run of the ultimate field watch, the U2-NC, available at Nigel Cabourn stores.
Drawing from the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition, the collaborative timepiece boasts a stonewashed olive drab Cerakote finish, then featuring a navy-colored dial with contrasting cream index, gold tone trims and printings. The back also incorporates elements inspired by the spirit of exploration, as it showcases an Antarctica map. Water resistant to 300 meters, the U2-NC is finished with heavy duty box-x nylon straps in safety orange and navy blue colorways.
Limited to just 150 units, you can find the Unimatic x Nigel Cabourn U2-NC available now at Nigel Cabourn stores and select retailers.
On this episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by LL Cool J, where we discuss his current projects and LL shares his thoughts on the shoes and how the recent announcement of adidas and Prada’s collab shows that classic hip-hop is culture. Listen below.
