Italian watch brand Unimatic has been able to consistently deliver high-quality but affordable boutique timepieces since it bombed the watch scene with its Modello Uno U1-A back in 2015. Since then, they’ve introduced several new models, both meca-quartz and mechanical automatic, and they’ve also done unique limited-run collabs with the likes of Luisaviaroma, Mihara Yasuhiro, and GOODS. Now, they’ve joined with Japanese retailer BIOTOP to create the Modello Uno ref. U1-BTP in a gorgeous brown, black, and Old Radium lume colorway. The diving watch gets an espresso brown bezel and matching Nato strap, matte black dial with cream-colored hands, numerals and markers. Like all their automatics, it’s powered by a modified and reliable Seiko NH35A movement with a 41-hour power reserve. Water-resistance is 1,000 ft, and it’s capped on the face with tough sapphire crystal. Unimatic is selling them exclusively on the Japanse BIOTOP site, and the U1-BTP is limited to a total of 100 units. The Nato strap version will be limited to 80 units for about $780, and the OEM solid-link stainless steel bracelet version will be limited to 20 units for around $1,010.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
