We love Unimatic for its unique style, robust construction, and creative limited-run watches and collaborations. This time, they’ve created a robust tool watch imbued with masculine style and everyday utility. The new UTB-4 is its toughest watch to date. The modest 40mm sandblasted case looks brash with its thick, fixed monoblock bezel and its no-nonsense black dial. Underneath is the Seiko VH31 quartz movement that gets an in-house designed 360° protection system for shock protection and a sweep second hand. The 2.8mm thick flat sapphire crystal gets an inner AR treatment, and lume takes the form of the C3 Super-LumiNova for easy low-light legibility. The UTB-4 also has 300 meters of water resistance, deeper than you’ll ever go. The strap is a black two-piece nylon with case-matching sandblasted stainless steel hardware. The UTB-4 is available directly from Unimatic.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
