UNDONE's Vintage Tuxedo offers a modern take on the classic style, with the chronograph complication adding some extra layers to the design, with a central dial in matte grey, with starburst chronograph registers and a black hour chapter ring with lovely, creamy-coloured Arabic numerals in a very pleasing deco-esque font, matched perfectly by the slender, lume-filled hands. The case is equally vintage-inspired, with pump-style pushers, and long straight lugs on the 40mm steel case. The movement though is somewhat more modern — a Seiko Instruments meca-quartz that's a happy middle ground between quartz accuracy and mechanical actuation.
As far as tuxedos go, UNDONE's version is quite contemporary, a modern evolution of the tuxedo — more Donald Glover than Fred Astaire, but equally stylish.
UNDONE is a Hong Kong based watch company founded by Michael Young in 2014. Young initiated his first offering in 2016, via Kickstarter with his Urban Vintage collection. Starting at USD175, with a digital customisation tool in place from the get go, not to mention the quarter million US dollars raised (HK$ 1,960,430), Young clearly had something on hand that a brand could be built around.
Today, UNDONE stands as a watch company with four collections under its belt, a high level of approval from the tool watch collector community and several notable collaboration watches –including one with our friends from Fratello Watches.

It’s the striking colourway that led watch dealers and collectors to coin the term tuxedo dial — which, broadly speaking, refers to a watch with a bi-colour dial, black and white with an outer ring that contrasts the centre of the dial.
