William Massena, the founding father of Massena LAB, has spent three a long time gathering and curating watches. In 2020 he created the Uni-Racer sequence, out of frustration, not having the ability to pay money for the short-lived “Uni-Compax” made by Common Geneve within the Sixties. As a result of restricted manufacturing of roughly 2 years, the “Uni-Compax” are extraordinarily uncommon and so, required excessive premiums to get one at auctions. Pissed off, Massena determined to create his personal model, and named it the Uni-Racer.
Encased inside a glossy 39 x 9mm stainless-steel case providing 50 meters of water resistance, the Massena LAB x Revolution Uni-Racer 1949 transports you to this golden age of horology. Its shiny black dial encompasses a charming Roman numerals sector observe, thoughtfully stuffed with SuperLumiNova for enhanced visibility. Including to its classic attraction, the watch proudly showcases a “Base 1000” Tachymeter, evoking a way of traditional racing heritage. In a nod to authenticity, Massena LAB made a deliberate option to function a domed acrylic crystal for the watch, coated with a scratch-resistant therapy from Kyburz Cie. This choice, regardless of its greater price in comparison with sapphire crystals, fantastically enhances the nostalgic aura of this masterpiece. Contained in the Massena LAB X Revolution, Uni-Racer 1949 is a manually wound column-wheel chronograph caliber, the Sellita SW510M, adjusted to run inside chronometer specification with 58 hours of energy reserve.
