A Colorful Tribute to MoMA

If you have ever entered the MoMa, you can instantly tell this is a homage to the Museum of Modern Art's renowned color palette. The watch's dial is adorned with faces in colors carefully selected from MoMA's spectrum. These hues lend a sense of artistic vibrancy to the watch, elevating it to a true work of wearable art. To further celebrate this connection, the watch features hands and geometric shapes in place of traditional numbers, all adorned with colors from the Museum's palette. The iconic MoMA logo graces the face, cementing the watch's place as a nod to the modern art aesthetic.

An Exciting Collaboration

We talk about about watches being art, but the MoMA Exclusive Unimatic Modello Uno Diving Watch is quite literally that. Unimatic has a track record of striking design and minimalist cues that are a nod to their founders' design heritage. There may not be a better collaborative partner then MoMA when considering that design heritage.
