Dive watch "Black Pearl": a piece of Barcelona on your wrist
Black Pearl 300 Meters is the definitive diving watch with Swiss automatic movement & traditional design updated to our days.
BLACK PEARL 300 meters - The HISTORY
After 7 years in the watchmaking market selling our watches around the world, we’ve developed a new design, the definitive dive watch that combines the experience we’ve gained over the years with what our clients have told us about their ideal watch: aesthetics and benefits of a diving watch, versatile design (a sporty watch that’s suitable for any occasion), smaller size, Swiss movement, and sapphire crystal, all at an accessible price.
With this in mind, the Black Pearl 300 meters was born. It is the third UNITY model we’re releasing on the market, in a limited series of only 300 units all of them numbered. For such a special occasion, we decided to use Kickstarter as a launching platform. With our 100% online business model and the presence of our brand in the world’s main watchmaking forums and on social media networks, this is a natural step for us.

DESCRIPTION OF THE WATCH
For the development of Black Pearl, we were inspired by traditional diver aesthetics updated for the modern day: We opted for a “cushion” case and metal bezel, both made of 316L stainless steel, and a crown screwed into the case at 4 o’clock, with slight protection offered by the case itself. The case has a matte finish with a polished top edge.
The result is a smaller, compact watch with a diameter of 43 mm and a width of only 44 mm from lug to lug, so it fits all wrist types.
The bezel, instead of the usual jagged edge, has four polished notches that give the watch a more elegant and versatile appearance. The 120-point bezel turns in one direction, and its hour markers and pearl placed at 12 o’clock are applied with C1 white lume.
The screw back case, also made of 316L stainless steel, has a matte finish and is engraved with a diving suit helmet and two sharks. The water resistance of the watch is 300 meters.
Metal band & rubber strap:
Black Pearl is delivered with two bands; one solid stainless steel band with matte finish & clasp buckle, and a second rubber strap with screw Pre-V buckle with DLC finish.
Dial & Hands:
For the dial, we opted for a deep black color with lacquered finish and internal bezel with minute markers and easy-to-read raised metal hour indicators finished with C1 white lume. The details of the metal logo and date marker stand out, as well as the red color of the “black pearl” text.
Normally the hands are the "ever-forgotten" component in many watches, falling back on standard hands that take away from its personality. Foe the Black Pearl we developed and exclusive hands that highlight its sportiness and give it a big personality. We opted for an arrow-type hour hand and a plongeur-type minute hand, both with a small "counterweight".The seconds handis also an arrow with the tip in red colour. They´re made of metal with a rhodium finish and C1 lume center as the indexs.
Swiss Made Valanvron V24 it is an automatic mechanical movement. Ligne 11 ½ with 25 jewels, frequency 28,800 Hz and 40 hours power reserve. Fitted with chronometer parameters.
Sapphire of 2 mm of diameter, slightly domed, with bluish anti-reflective finished.
At UNITY we are committed to offering excellent after-sales service to all our clients. We offer a comprehensive 2-year international warranty on any failure or malfunction of the watch.
