Italo Fontana, creative mind of U-BOAT, has always produced watches in limited or special editions commissioned also by Italian and international special forces, as recently those designed for the GIS (Special Intervention Group) of Carabinieri. Continuing on this tradition, the new exclusive 1938 Doppiotempo derives directly from the model created for the historic 9th parachutist assault regiment “Col Moschin”.
1938 Doppiotempo finds its uniqueness thanks to the link with the commemorative watch “Centouno”, strongly requested and launched on the occasion of the 101 years of their anniversary.
This is confirmed by this special unit, which has returned to choosing U-BOAT for its unconventional technical and design features that make it perfect for the most extreme missions and on liberty.
In a special edition of only 200 pieces, the watch boasts a 43 mm satin-finished steel case, with a retro look, with two extractable crowns on the left, one for the remittance of time and date, the other for adjusting the dual time and an ultra-domed bronzed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment.
The watch houses a Swiss movement – with U-BOAT specifications – self-winding, with a 38-hour reserve. The dial is black, with a bidirectional inner bezel, with hours and 30 minute intervals that synchronises with the additional hand so as to display the two different time zones. The strap is in green leather with steel buckle. The water resistance is 100 meters.
