Collaborating for the second time, Hodinkee and Unimatic have revealed two new Modello references reimagined in forged carbon fiber cases. The drop comprises the Modello Quattro U4S-C-H and Modello Uno U1S-C-GMT-H, each available in a limited run of 250 pieces.
Measuring 40mm in diameter, the two watches are touted to weigh around 45% lighter thanks to the incredibly robust and lightweight forged carbon material. Boasting a thin construction, the matte-finished case features a swirl-like pattern that is unique for every piece.
Priced at $2,200 USD, the Modello Quattro U4S-C-H stars an asphalt gray dial with Super-LumiNova® C1 white indices. Powering the time-teller inside is the Swiss-made Sellita SW200-1-b caliber, which offers 38 hours of running time, topped with 300 meters of water resistance. Aligning with its color palette, the watch is paired with a TPU two-piece strap in a tonal gray hue.
With a price point of $2,900 USD, the Modello Uno U1S-Carbon GMT-H runs on the ETA 2893-2 automatic caliber that’s geared with GMT function. Beating a frequency of 28,800vph, the reference is also capable of withstanding up to 300 meters underwater, complete with a 42-hour power reserve. Its dial, bezel, and TPU strap all come in a matte black. In addition, the outer case is outfitted with a titanium inner case for added durability.
