Basecamp Cali Basic
While the striking design is inspired by military designs from the golden age of watchmaking, the Basecamp is a versatile beast. As its name implies it’s a watch well suited to outdoor activities and adventures of all types. It’s also snappy enough to keep pace with a discerning workplace, easily styling up or down as the occasion demands. But it’s a watch that will never hide in the background, thanks mainly to that California dial.
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.

The main attraction is the so-called “California” dial which uses both Arabic and Roman Numerals. It’s thought that, in the context of WWII-era military dive watches, the Roman/Arabic division was a design choice aimed at allowing divers to quickly and accurately determine the time in dark and uncertain underwater environments. For this reason, the California dial is sometimes called the ‘error-proof’ dial.
