Because minimalists need to tell time, too.

For the second time, Italian luxury watchmaker Unimatic has teamed up with Japanese designer Mihara Yasuhiro. Though not one to shy away from more avant-garde designs, Yasuhiro has this time gone for the paired-down approach, resulting in a clean white wristwatch for the minimalist crowd.

Yasuhiro’s creation is an all-white take on Unimatic’s Modello Uno U1-MY2 watch. The timepiece features a white case, white bezel insert, a white minimal dial and Super-LumiNova white C1 markers. Wearers can choose between a white nylon strap or a more luxurious white leather strap. Unimatic will produce just 100 editions of the watch, and because each case is stonewashed by hand, every watch will be a one-of-a-kind creation with unique variations in texture and pattern.

Unimatic released another limited-edition version of its Modello Uno watch earlier this year, in collaboration with Massena LAB. For that release, Unimatic created just 99 versions of the chocolate brown watch, which retailed for $850 USD. In the past, Unimatic has collaborated with retailers such as colette, MR PORTER and LUISAVIAROMA.

The Mihara Yasuhiro x Unimatic Modello Uno U1-MY2 will be on sale starting September 19 at Mihara Yasuhiro stores in Tokyo and Osaka. It will also be available online at Mihara Yasuhiro’s online store and Unimatic’s webstore. Each timepiece will retail for ¥98,000 JPY (approximately $923 USD).
