UNDONE is a bespoke watchmaker established in 2014 by Michael Young. The company’s philosophy revolves around making watches that tell a story more than something that simply displays the time or functions as a fashion accessory.
On that note, their offering is highly unique to most other watch brands because each of their watches are highly-customizable and made-to-order. They’re able to provide personalized designs, each unique to each customer’s preferences for a mere fraction of the price.
Using their online customizer, you can choose the style of the dial, the color, and the material to be used on the case, the hands to include on the dial, the kind of strap, and the type of case back (solid or glass) to be used on the watch.
UNDONE offers a number of models under their Urban, Aqua, and Collaboration collections. In addition to this, the company also sells straps, packages, and gift cards.
This April 2019, they’ll be releasing the newest member of their collection named ‘Basecamp’. Watch critics will surely love this addition to UNDONE’s iconic watch lines.
What’s New With The Basecamp
The Basecamp is a high-performance sports watch made for diving enthusiasts. This highly-anticipated model from UNDONE features a contemporary look with an impressive, vintage vibe.
The Basecamp measures 40mm in width and stands at 15mm thick, making it slimmer than other diver watches out there. The case material can be made of 316L stainless steel, yellow gold, rose gold, or black PVD, depending on your choice.

It has a bidirectional bezel that rotates without clicking and features a ‘Sterile’ design similar to the one found on Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms model. The bezel’s minimalistic design has a singular lumed triangle in it which was installed by applying the lume under the acrylic coating. Still, staying true to their brand promise of customizability, UNDONE can put the classic 60-minute markings on the bezel if you want to.
The black-colored dial features a date window, luminescent hands, and luminescent hour markers with a mix of Arabic numerals at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions. The hour hand has a distinctive orange color which is reminiscent of the one found on a Rolex Explorer II watch.
UNDONE also allows you to customize the dial with engravings or initials.
The dial is covered with an ultra-domed Lexan crystal that’s 3mm thick. Lexan is a very sturdy polycarbonate thermoplastic which is the same material used in motorcycle helmets. It’s about 250 times more durable than the typical glass so you can be rest assured that it can withstand water pressure up to 100m underwater.
The Basecamp is powered by a Seiko NH-35 automatic movement which enables the timepiece to feature a date complication and pack a 42-hour power reserve.
All of UNDONE’s watches are made using traditional techniques combined with the latest technology the horology world has to offer. Tests are conducted on every watch they manufacture to ensure quality is not sacrificed for aesthetics and functionality.
With prices starting at USD 295, the Basecamp is a great steal when you consider the design, the features, and the quality of materials used on the watch. The addition of this model will surely spice things up for those looking for a sports watch with a minimalistic and timeless design.
