An evolution of our first collaboration with UNIMATIC, our new release, U1-MLM finds its inspiration from the French navy of the 1960’s.

Due to the artisanal manufacturing process, there are slight variations in dial color. It varies from marine blue to sea blue.


The U1-MLM represents an evolution of our first collaboration with UNIMATIC, born from the question "What would a UNIMATIC watch from the 1950’s look like today?" The product was a modern, high-quality wristwatch that incorporated vintage touch points without relying on nostalgia alone. The result was a great success.

For the Massena LAB Marine (U1-MLM), we find ourselves a decade forward in time, as this second collaboration takes influence and inspiration from the French navy of the 1960’s.

Each dial is its own shade of deep blue, ranging from ocean to navy, thanks to natural color changes that occur during production. Because of this, each watch is distinct from any other watch in this limited edition. All markers are carefully hand-painted for a crisp finish.

An anchor is engraved on the case back, again evoking the French naval tradition. Each watch comes with a matching blue NATO strap as well as a French navy loop strap in olive with a centered yellow stripe.

Limited run of 200 units. Made by UNIMATIC in Italy.
