Unimatic and Nigel Cabourn are a match made in heaven. Each brand emphasizes a practical approach to crafting timepieces along with an affinity for history that inspires many of their designs. Their partnership spawned the Unimatic x Nigel Cabourn U2 -NC. This limited edition watch is inspired by the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition, which completed the first overland crossing of the whole continent of Antarctica. That journey serves as the theme for a watch that is made to withstand the most grueling of adventures.
Calling the watch durable would be an understatement. The 38.5mm stainless-steel case is finished by a stonewashed cerakote coating to withstand whatever you can throw at it. The NH35A automatic movement is imperviously shielded under ultra-thick 2.7mm double-domed sapphire glass. This protects the watch from water damage for up to 300m, ensuring that its highly accurate 41-hour power reserve will be nearly impossible to disrupt. Its matte navy blue dial is perfectly accented by Super-LumiNova Cream Old Radium indices, making it easy to read, even in the most intense conditions.
