Handcrated in Italy, U Boat watches by Italo Fontana are fine precision watches that were originally designed in 1942 for U boat officers and Italian Air Force pilots. These timepieces were intended to be easy to read and tough watches that would weather wear and tear and difficult to destroy. Having come a long way since then, U–Boat is does more than just tell time. Fashionable and tenacious, the new U-BOAT SOMMERSO range, first launched in 2017, takes you to new depths. Diving was never so fashionable
Italo Fontana enriches the U-BOAT Classico line with the new “Sommerso” models, watches designed fto come towards the needs of those who dive even at a professional level, but who do not miss the combination with more elegant and refined outfits.
Three models with 46 mm cases in steel completely hand finished. The Classico Sommerso, introduced first time in 2017, is renewed in version 2.0, by enriching its dial with new details. This model comes out along with two other versions, one with a dial with blue superluminova indexes, another with a ultra-resistant black case treated with DLC, with a black dial and beige indexes also in superluminova. DLC (Diamond like Carbon) is an innovative coating, based on carbon, that guarantees a high hardness and resistance to scratches given by the simultaneous presence of diamond and graphite in addition to a full and compact black color.
Three different models of Sommerso, including cases and dials, for different tastes and combinations of looks. All the versions are characterized by a special 24h counter, anti-glare sapphire crystal, integrated and calibrated lens for a better reading of the date.
The unidirectional bezel, the most distinctive element of a diver watch, allows you to keep under control the dive time, with the help of the sphere of minutes, highlighted in its final part with superluminova of different colors.
The gummed fabric straps of the three models are derived from boating industry and feature a calf lining with Kodiak waterproofing.
