I get my hands on the latest addition to Undone’s DC Comics character range watch, ‘Flash: Into the Void’. Watch my unboxing and read the review.
From their range of watches inspired by DC Comics characters comes the latest to the collection from Undone. It’s called ‘Flash: Into the Void’ and pays tribute to Central City’s very own super-fast superhero. We previewed this watch last month. Now I get ‘hands on’ with an unboxing video and review.
The watch arrived well packaged with a sturdy cardboard exterior box and a neat layer of bubble wrap. Once revealed, the main packaging is extremely tactile. Covered in a matt grey material a slide out section is secured with a brown leather tab and fastening. The size, finish and weight all evoke an assurance of quality before even seeing the timepiece itself.
A label attached to the packaging provides some technical information, but also a nice personal touch. The date of purchase is written by hand in silver ink, a useful reminder as each watch comes with a one year warranty.
Once open you’re greeted with a basic user manual and a matt black card bearing the Undone moniker and famous Flash lightning logo. Push these to the side and you’ll find the watch nestled inside.
The casing comes protected with thick, clear plastic. Remove this and the eye is instinctively drawn towards the prominent yellow second hand sweeping silently across the clock face. With the rest of the watch carrying a dark, matt finish, the flash of yellow representing the lightning logo is the stand out feature. It’s purpose is to represent our hero as he streaks across blackness of time and space.
Weighing in at 50 grams the watch has a weight to it that evokes the feeling of quality. This is echoed in the beautiful finish. From the minimalist watch face that bears only subtle markings housed under a smooth domed glass, to the silent rotating bezel, useful for divers (the watch is waterproof to 100m).
It feels strong too. The case is made from stainless steel, PDA coated in satin black and attached to a tough material strap. I didn’t reference it in the video, but straps can be easily replaced or swapped with a simple sliding mechanism to remove them. There’s a space in the packaging to keep a spare strap.
Perhaps the most intricate part of this piece is hidden from view. The back contains a window that exposes the self winding mechanism and movements. A bold DC logo bearing an image of The Flash is printed here too.
On the wrist the watch feels comfortable. The weight, again, gives a sense of reassurance, it’s not going to break or slip off. My only concern is for how well that smooth glass dome over the clock face will fair against the odd knock and scratch? Time will tell.
‘Flash: Into the Void’ is available now from Undone and retails for £310.00.
