Hands-On With The New Modello Quattro U4-A, A Fixed Bezel Diver From Unimatic


Unimatic keeps their foot on the gas with the arrival of another new model based upon their proven negligible jump watch layout. The freshest watch is the Modello Quattro ref. U4-A, and it addresses the start of a fourth group of watches from the Italian brand. The Quattro imparts likenesses to the OG Modello Uno watches, yet moves to a fixed bezel plan alongside getting various other unobtrusive, yet welcome changes. This is still unequivocally a Unimatic watch, so if you’re an aficionado of what they do, the U4-An ought to be directly right up your alley.

The mid-instance of the Quattro looks precisely what you’d find on other Unimatic jumpers in the Uno family, save for the hauls which presently sport bored openings at their end.  The element bodes well with regards to these watches and the ethos they buy in to, and is something numerous enthusiasts of the brand have been requesting.

The moment hashes are long and readable, and they push the hour markers internal, making a more compact dial design that likewise traits to its sensation being a more modest watch than an Uno. One little contrast that won’t go unnoticed by vintage Rolex fans is the move away from the meters first profundity rating, to a feet first configuration.
