Modest Luxury: Classic NATO Watch

Eduardo Umaña was born in Bogota, Colombia and attended Swarthmore College where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in engineering. He started trying to make a watch sophomore year and by the time he was a senior I launched classic engineering with a limited number of classic NATO’s that he made myself and sold to friends and family.

The classic NATO watch was entirely designed, engineered, and created by Eduardo Umaña. He sourced the highest quality materials: case machined and ceramic treated right here in the U.S, swiss movement and assembly, sapphire crystal, and a beautiful
handmade in Amsterdam leather strap. The leather is vegetable tanned, full-grain sourced from Tuscany, Italy. The classic NATO comes in gold, black, and silver, and the straps in chianti, black, and natural. There are 9 possible combinations altogether. The packaging of the classic NATO is solid acrylic and raw paper, all made here in the U.S.

The design language is a balance of the classical and the modern, an upgraded minimalism that adds perhaps a modest amount of luxury or
ornament. The design is simple and elegant.
