Here’s the word from Undone, who have revived a style from the 60s, and are offering the models for a short two week sales period.
UNDONE is reinterpreting the highly collectible dials of the high-end vintage timepieces, which were extremely popular amongst the Middle Eastern elites during the 1960s and 70s.
Giving you the most sought-after color choices amongst watch collectors and enthusiasts alike; the watches come in a selection of Tiff Blue, purple, and yellow. It is a modern twist, inspired by the flamboyant colors of the 60s. The highly limited UNDONE Stellar collection will only be available for purchase within a two-week period, between June 24th and July 8th.
Each color is limited to 300 pieces and is uniquely serialized. In this collection, UNDONE is giving you all the characteristics of the highly sought-after watch style by Middle Eastern elites. The UNDONE Stellar pieces offer daring and exciting high gloss colors contrasted by the conservative tone of the 316L stainless steel case, with finishing touches including the metallic applied indices.
This collection oozes a sense of chromaticvibrancy. Bringing the dial to life is the liquid-like finish, a finish that gives you the feeling of paint that has never dried. To achieve this look, it undergoes successive rounds of sanding to get rid ofany unevenness (or the “orange peel” effect) in the enamel paint application.
Each watch in the UNDONE Stellar collection is finished with a “Khanjar” Emblem at 12o’clock. The unique design is influenced by timepieces from the 1960s, which were fitted with custom Middle Eastern dials. These rare timepieces were often presented as ceremonious gifts and were never available to the public.
In typical UNDONE fashion, each watch will come with a complementary colored Epsom grained leather strap that pairs perfectly with the vibrant colored dials, and a dark brown leather strap with a crimson printed “Khanjar” emblem for a change of look.
The 316L stainless steel case is 12.7mm thick with a hardened domed K1 crystal and a displaycaseback. With a case width of 40mm and a lug-to-lug of 47.6mm, it offers versatility to suit both mens and womens wrists. Water resistance is guaranteed at 3 ATM/30 meters. Inside the design is a Japanese TMI VK64 Mechanical-Quartz Hybrid Flyback Chronograph (supplied by SEIKO Manufacturing (H.K.)Limited), with a sweeping central chronograph seconds. The subdials show a 24-hour display and 60-minute counter. The strap is immediately comfortable and is fitted with quick release spring bars that conform to the trendy swappable design, allowing you to easily switch to your complimentary strap.
