UNDONE x Simple Union:
無3 (MŪ3)

(IM)PERMANENCE.
(IM)PERFECTION & (IM)MORTALITY.

Following the massively successful UNDONE x Simple Union collaborations that were sold out within hours, this year UNDONE x Simple Union introduces 無3 (MŪ3 ), a deeper introspection of Wabi Sabi’s aesthetic philosophy, inspired by an artisanal dimension of different textures and materials. The buddhist virtues of「無」,「常」,「苦」,「空」find renewed cadence in two reincarnations of the Kyoto Dial- rooted in the Japanese ancestral arts of Sometsuke (blue & white porcelain) and Urushi (Japanese lacquerware).

We give you: the UNDONE x Simple Union: Sometsuke and the UNDONE x Simple Union: Urushi.

THE GIFT OF NATURE.
A LETHAL LACQUER.

URUSHI

Inspired by Urushi (漆) and Maki-e (蒔絵), some of the oldest Japanese traditional arts that date as far back as 9,000 years, we create a black enamel painted dial, simulating the look of black lacquerware inspired by the art of Urushi. It is complemented by an inspired version of Maki-e, with golden colored paint sprinkled across the dial.

A LETHAL INSPIRATION

In traditional lacquerware art, raw lacquer is extracted from the toxic resin of the urushi tree. Historically, parts of the urushi tree were consumed by Japanese monks to complete their mummification process. The boundary of life and death was blurred – fatality could also lead to immortality.

THE ART OF MAKI-E

A decoration method called Maki-e is applied to create a beautiful pattern of gold spots across the darkest dial. This art was hugely popular and celebrated in the Edo period (1603-1867).

LOVED BY ROYALTIES & UPPER CLASS

Maki-e was originally used as collectible items for the nobles of the court as a symbol of power. UNDONE emulates the beauty of urushi and maki-e to bring you the aesthetics once enjoyed only by the best and the powerful.

the KYOTO dial

AN ORIENTAL REINTERPRETATION

The classic California dial is cleverly transformed to showcase the 4 delicate grains of Kanji 無, 常, 苦, 空 on the top half of the dial.

They signify the Buddhist teaching of impermanence, suffering, and absence of self-nature. The bottom half of the enamel-painted dial retains its normal numerals.

KINTSUGI

Intensifying the idea of 金継ぎ (Kintsugi) – an exploration of finding beauty in imperfection through patching broken porcelain – a bold crack across the enamel dial unexpectedly reveals a gold-colored skeleton movement. This is a highly sought after feature in the watch world and only seen in luxury watches. This design is inspired by the Kintsugi art of mending broken porcelain with gold to reinterpret beauty.
