A little over a week ago, we brought you the first Space Jam watch collaboration we saw; today, we’ve got another one to talk about. This time around, it’s the crew over at Undone bringing two models to us, one limited and the other with some customization options.
As you can tell by looking at the photos, these Undone Space Jam watches are chronographs, set into a tonneau “lugless” case design. When you’re talking chronographs, the interest is around the movement, and here you’ve got the Seiko VK63 mecha-quartz. This is indeed a quartz (accuracy for the win) but the pushers will give you the solid clicks you expect from a mechanical chronograph, as well as a quick reset of the seconds hand. In other words, the experience of the mechanical chronograph movement while keeping the costs down in the realm of quartz.
To track the chronograph, you’ve got a 60-minute register over at 9 o’clock featuring Lebron James, and then there’s a 24-hour register over at 3 o’clock (with Bugs Bunny showing up). Down at 6 o’clock, that’s your running seconds, and on the Limited Edition “Slam Dunk” it just says Tune Squad. On the “Tune Squad” watch, you get to choose what additional member of the team you’d like to have show up on that register, so you can get your favorite there, be it Daffy, Taz, or any of the others.
Back to the LE Slam Dunk model, this is definitely the more upscale look, with a black dial going with the black DLC of the case. A closer examination of the dial shows that it’s actually a basketball pattern there, with red lines indicating the seams. Additionally, where Lebron and Bugs appear, they’re actually silhouettes.
While the Slam Dunk is restrained in it’s colors, the Tune Squad goes much the other direction. The characters on the subdials are in full color, the dial itself is semi-transparent and printed with a circuit board design, and you’ve got orange showing up as an accent color, and blue on the strap.
Whichever route you go, these Undone Space Jam watches will run you $369. The Slam Dunk is limited to 300 pieces worldwide, while the Tune Squad is unlimited, and as we mentioned, you can customize which character is on the 6 o’clock subdial. Check all the options out over at undone.com
