Custom watchmaker UNDONE has been at the center of anmie and pop culture inspired watches. Following the recent release of the Popeye and Brutus monochrome watches and the Batman-themed Dark Knight retrospective watch, UNDONE has now released two Mickey Mouse watches to please fans and collectors.
The new Mickey “Fantasia” and Disney “Guess Who’s Back” are the two Mickey Mouse-themed UNDONE watches for 2022. Designed in collaboration with Disney, these watches have a distinct grip – unlike what we’ve seen – but they are relatively economical – friendly.
Disney “Guess Who’s Back”
A close iteration – in its functionality – of Bulgari’s Gerald Genta Arena Retro Mickey Mouse Disney, the “Guess Who’s Back” features Mickey on the dial with his arms acting as the watch’s hour and minute hands. There’s an interesting twist here – Mickey faces inward, toward the dial, and his face and front frame are visible through the semi-transparent caseback.
The UNDONE x Disney “Guess Who’s Back” is otherwise a 40mm stainless steel case watch with a black ceramic bezel insert complementing the all-white dial covered with Mickey in his signature outfit. The watch is powered by Seiko’s NH35/70 self-winding movement featuring a 41-hour power reserve. With a water resistance of 100 meters, the sporty Disney “Guess Who’s Back” is priced at $599.
UNDONE’s “Fantasia” Mickey takes a slightly different approach to what we’ve actually seen in the past. Featuring Mickey Mouse as a wizard and the boot on the blue dial coming alive at night, the watch will instantly remind fans of the 1940 movie. The chronograph watch has a 42.8mm stainless steel case with a vintage tachymeter design and a water resistance of 30 meters. .
The watch is equally exciting on the back where the semi-transparent caseback with Mickey and Fantasia branding provides a nice glimpse of the chronograph movement inside. The “Fantasia” Mickey arrives on a textured blue suede strap for $480.
