Yes - "Wabi Sabi"~! Cool

In design, referring to the naturally cold emptiness and organic symmetry of nature. In landscape and architecture and most design in general, one develops a sort of lust for negative space in the same sense that whiskey drinkers will often move to a more heavily peated, less sweet malt-offering. Its precisely the LACK of sweetness and the lack of component detail-overload which makes these watches so appealing to me. In a vast sea of Rolex Sub, IWC Big Pilot, Omega Speedy and Blancpain homages, the Unimatic offerings seem to blend core aspects of many perennial design details into an understated, rationally sized and somehow fresh package. With the lack of competing elements, the small flourishes and angles seem to take on more importance. Ah, I could write & talk watches all day....

I like it! Just out of curiosity, did you check out Baltic Watches? They have a similar design. (n/t) RussMurray 75 April 11, 2019 07:45AM
Thanks, Russ! Yes, lusted after the initial Baltic Aquascaphe Ethan Mack 91 April 11, 2019 07:53AM
You know, the more I look at it, the more I like it. Your reasoning over the Baltic is more than sound and I get where you're coming from. I too lusted after the Aquascaphe but have recently pulled the trigger on something else.... RussMurray 70 April 11, 2019 09:35AM
