Are you ready kids? Aye-aye captain. I can't hear you... Aye-aye captain!

Ohhhhhh! Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

Don’t look at me in that tone of voice – there is absolutely no excuse for a man of my age to be as familiar as I am with the SBSP theme song!

Straight out of Bikini Bottom via Italy is this new Modello Uno form Unimatic, a watch that celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Nickelodeon smash hit, SpongeBob SquarePants.

Introducing the Modello Uno ref. U1-SS Unimatic X SpongeBob SquarePants which boasts a matte black anthracite SpongeBob SquarePants dial.

The watch is based on a Stainless steel case with a DLC black brushed finish plus screw-down crown and case-back. Each case has been individually tested water-resistance to 300m.

The case-back features a SpongeBob SquarePants blueprint engraving along with the watch’s individual serial number out of 50.

Powering the Modello Uno SBSP is a Seiko NH35A automatic movement tuned to 21600bph with 41h power reserve and hacking seconds hand.

It comes on Sponge Bob Yellow Nylon two piece strap and black heavy-duty Unimatic V shaped nylon NATO strap with black DLC brushed hardware signed Unimatic.

MSRP is 650euro.

Thoughts? A fun yet surprisingly sober diver that is very much on topic. I’d happily wear one – how bout’ you?

RIP Stephen Hillenburg, SBSP’s creator who sadly passed away almost a year ago.
