Royal Enfield x UNIMATIC

Royal Enfield and UNIMATIC are two distinct brands with unique identities and missions, yet they share common elements of authenticity, heritage, and craftsmanship. They have more in common than you might think - and form a unique pairing with their limited November 9th launch.

Royal Enfield, with its origins dating back to 1901 in the UK and now headquartered in India, is renowned for its classic, retro-styled motorcycles. The brand is cherished for its timeless design and robust single-cylinder engines, offering an authentic and nostalgic riding experience. Royal Enfield's mission is to preserve its heritage and deliver simple, reliable motorcycles that resonate with riders seeking a vintage, cruiser-style approach to motorcycling. It has a global presence and a passionate following of enthusiasts who appreciate its commitment to tradition.

UNIMATIC, on the other hand, is an Italian watch brand that embodies a contemporary take on minimalist, functional timepieces. Established in 2015, UNIMATIC's watches are known for their clean, utilitarian designs and high-quality craftsmanship. The brand's mission revolves around creating modern watches inspired by military and diving aesthetics, focusing on precision, durability, and style.

The Royal Enfield and UNIMATIC collaboration exemplifies the idea that tradition and authenticity can coexist with contemporary design and innovation. They appeal to consumers who seek products that not only serve a purpose but also tell a story and connect them with a bygone era. These brands remind us that while the world may evolve, there's a timeless charm in the classic and the well-crafted.

The Royal Enfield x UNIMATIC Modello Quattro U4-RE follows a militaristic design language that pays homage to the joint spirit of the partnering brands. The design is striking, and was inspired by the Royal Enfield Legendary Engine.
