I for one would. Some people already have options, but not in the app as used by Unity. They make it very easy!

I think its easier for them to do to, because they are making it all in house, as opposed to contracting out to a factory.

I think that is why we dont see as many of these build your own watches.

The review is fantastic and has great pictures and info. The web site is very cool with the build your own feature.

Personally am not a fan of this watch or the weird bezel/case design at all. I was not a Hexa fan either and just think these unconventional case and bezel designs are just not for me. The one that Cheng customized above is the best dial, hand, and color combination I have seen posted but I still could never get by the unappealing (to me) case design.

Did anyone play around with the augmented reality feature? It's pretty cool to be able to "See" the watch on your wrist. I just wish they had more watch options avail than just the two.

I for one would.* Some people already have options, but not in the app as used by Unity.* They make it very easy!

I would like to add CUDOS to UNITY for starting a business in Spain's worst economic recession in modern times, with close to 50 % of young people unemployed, my younger brother one of them until recently (Now teaching aviation mechanics and english). Barcelona is the industrial powerhouse in Spain and the people who started Unity have tapped some of that un-used capability. No reason they couldn't do the same in Detroit for example... Anyone listening? :whatever:

Great review. The version created by Cheng is the most appealing I've seen.

Fernando, that looks very nice above.

How much is that one?

Remember, to see the US price(without tax), hit the buy button to see the price.
The prices you can see at the website are with tax and shipping. When you intoduce your personal information and delivery address, along the checkout process, the price is recalculate. For countries out of CEE the final price to be paid is without tax.

Interesting concept and design. I like the blue dial version the best.

Cool watch. I'm impressed. Very unique. Looks well made and the price seems about right. I may need to add one of these to the wish list.

Excellent Excellent review and picts TC, the video was a nice addition.


Cheng, i would be more inclined to mix it up and settle on a tailored piece.


Two thumbs up for Unity, great innovation and making it happen.


i've returned to view Don's excellent picts and see if other members have posted mock ups,

the "staples" are more appealing with each visit and i love the look Cheng through down,

but the style still doesn't work for me personally.

Now i'm going to play first hand and check out their site.

Thank You Don, Thank You Unity, and Thank You to the mock modelers.

You can easily choose the blue dial in configuring your own, and I've been told there will be new dial options in a few weeks.
I'm thinking about ordering a 42mm...going to wait to see what they are, as I want something a little different from what I reviewed.

It's scary how good watches are getting. Man these are cool Don ! The whole design is very

different. Unlike anything I can think of, and then to able to basically build the watch to your

specifications makes it extra special I think. (Excellent job by the way) ..Just think if you were

able to get one of these they would always stand out in a watch box. Very very nice ! Thanks

very much for doingthis review.
