So far as limited edition, superhero inspired timepieces are concerned, there aren’t many watchmakers that can hold a candle to UNDONE and they’ve excelled themselves once again with their latest release – the superb looking Superman Watch. Inspired by the Man of Steel – this exemplary looking timepiece is a tribute to Batman’s 80th anniversary and has turned our heads here at Coolector HQ.
The UNDONE x Superman Watch has a price tag of £339 which, considering the exclusive nature of the watch and the high quality materials used throughout, represents excellent value for money in our opinion. This heroic looking timepiece from UNDONE is billed as a wearable device to decipher Superman’s messages from his home planet of Krypton. It is an updated version based on the prized 1943 original “Secret Superman Code” which means that, with a twist of the bezel, you can easily compose and decode secret messages written in Kryptonian.
Battle Ready Aesthetic
There is a highly distinctive, battle-hardened, aesthetic to the UNDONE x Superman Watch that we’re big fans of and it boasts a sandblasted + PVD coated gunmetal case, and the matte black tactical rubber strap along with the overall muted colourway converge together to give this other-worldly timepiece its sinister “Kryptonian Battle Armour” look and feel.
The UNDONE x Superman Watch (£339) has subtle hints of Superman’s iconic hero colours which can be witnessed in the thin blue minute track, the red of the cerakoted crown, the seconds hand, alongside the bezel and dial highlights. There is also a nod to the extra-terrestrial origins of Superman: ”KRYPTONIAN” spelt in both English and Kryptonian dialects reside on a “Meteorite” texture dial of this eye-catching timepiece.
Some of the other most striking design features of this classy timepiece from UNDONE include a Superman emblem in the form of a metallic applique on the dial and a laser-engraved solid case back which features a transliteration chart of the Kryptonian-English alphabet that can be used for all your inter-planetary codebreaking.
Billed as a first of its kind collector’s piece that integrates the novelty of Kryptonian decoding with the telling of time, it’s easy to see excitement is high surrounding this amazing looking UNDONE x Superman Watch. Great value for money right now at under £350, this timepiece is available for pre-ordering so make sure you move quickly to avoid disappointment.
It uses the Seiko Instruments Inc. NH35A Automatic Winding Mechanism movement so it is a mighty reliable and robust timepiece which will undoubtedly appeal to those with a love of the DC comic universe. A great looking timepiece for an even better price.
