As its name implies, this Swiss watch company offers a singular look in wristwear.
Yunik offers a broad and imaginative selection of round (small and large) and tonneau-shaped steel watches made with colorful Murano glass.
One of the typical features of Murano glass – and thus also one of the typical characteristics of many Yunik wristwatches – are Millefiori, which means “a thousand flowers” and refers to a special technique of glass production.
Here, a mixture of different colored glass rods are fused together and partly coated with glass. The varied coloring of the glass rods, colored with silver, gold, iron oxide or other materials, melds to create eye-catching designs not found on other watch dials. Yes, they are unique.
The Yunik BR (Big Round) is a 44mm model with a Ronda quartz movement ($790). Its Murano glass dial and case are actually made as one piece. The screw-down back is in anti-allergen steel, and its sapphire crystal is splash resistant. Yunik says it will launch automatic version of its unusual watches in the near future.
Available in a wide selection of colorful, patterned or even monochromatic versions, each is attached to a quick-change bracelet made with Italian leather, vegan material or a metallic bracelet. Small and tonneau models measure 36mm in diameter.
