U-BOAT Sommerso Bronze

The new bronze version of U-BOAT’s professional dive watch, Sommerso, reflects the brand founder’s passion for diving as well as his enduring fervor for the ancient metal alloy.

Bronze is the first metal alloy that humankind learned to manipulate. Its history dates back to ancient times. It had been widely used in the maritime construction before the introduction of modern alloys.

Italo Fontana’s passion for diving gathered in this watch, designed to withstand the rigorous demands of professional diving in the first place, done the rest providing Sommerso with all the benefits coming from this metal inherently tied to maritime settings.

U-BOAT Sommerso Bronze automatic diving watch with 46mm case

Highly resistant to seawater and to corrosion, harder than stainless steel and iron combined, often used in the arms industries, creating a patina, unique to each timepiece, evolving in different colors; these are just few of the characteristics intriguing Italo since ever.

This new creation is a nod to antique diving equipment worn by the earliest nautical divers. The natural oxidation of the material of the 46mm case creates a naturally aged look, often a unique one, extremely desirable by its wearer. Necessary for every pro-dive watch, it features a rotating unidirectional bezel with calibrated markers every five minutes interspersed with numbers every ten minutes from 10 to 50.

On its left side is the characteristic U-BOAT crown with a patented protective device. A Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating protects the watch dial which is composed of three superimposed layers with the upper one in black with luminous beige hands and markers plus an additional counter for the 24 hours of the day and the date placed on the opposite side.

Each Sommerso dive watch houses a Swiss automatic mechanical movement, personalized to U-BOAT specifications featuring date, hours, minutes, seconds plus the 24 hours indicator.

Water resistant to 300 meters, the watch is paired with a dark brown handmade and hand finished calf leather strap with a bronze buckle subdued to a special anti-corrosion treatment.

U-BOAT DARKMOON

Following the idea explored first time with Capsoil model, the U-BOAT introduces a new collection of watches, Darkmoon.

In the new line, an oil bath completely immerses the electromechanics of the timepiece, the Ronda Swiss quartz movement. The oily liquid completely surrounds the dial turning it to an absolute black, reason why the collection is named Darkmoon, giving it a three dimensional and deep aesthetic. The obtained full color effects metaphorically push the wearer to explore his emotions in depth and in an amplified manner.

U-BOAT DARKMOON 44 SS (COD 8463)

The collection consists of five watches in size 44mm, all with black dial, numbers and indexes in beige colour, hands treated with beige superluminova.

The liquid fills the dial completely, with the exception of one single air bubble that is purposely left on every model. This bubble allows the liquid to move, and flow giving another unique look, where the dial is ever moving and changing.

U-BOAT 1938 DOPPIOTEMPO

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.

U-BOAT CAPSOIL

Available in chronograph and solotempo versions, the CAPSOIL watch whose electro-mechanics is completely immersed in an oil bath revolutionises the concept of U-BOAT creations while retaining the brand’s strong exclusive personality.

The oily liquid, surrounding the dial, transforms it into an absolute black, making it three dimensional and deep. This fluid creates an ever-moving compensation bubble, as well as a surprisingly amplified view of the hands, which seem to float free as in absence of the glass.

The 45 mm diameter case, in the two steel versions, one with black DLC treatment, blends with the highest quality convex sapphire, from which beige spheres and indexes treated with
superluminova emerge.

Hermetic resistance at a pressure of 10 ATM is guaranteed by the back case fastened with screw and featuring a smoked mineral glass. The watch is finally equipped with a leather strap with innovative water-repellent lining, handcrafted by expert Florentine artisans.

U-BOAT Stratos

Italo Fontana announces the launch of Stratos, the first U-BOAT watch with a “strategic” thickness.

Unlike the usual U-BOAT creations, Stratos is a watch with a smaller size and extremely flat. The Classico is no doubt one of the most iconic designs conceived by Italo Fontana. This time he unveils two versions of Classico, named Stratos, in sizes 45mm and size 40mm but scaled down to an unusual thickness respectively of 11,70mm and 9,50mm.

Both the Stratos watches are in stainless steel featuring distinguishing patented crown on left side, sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating is secured to the case through a bezel in polished tungsten, the hardest of all metals, and boasting a serial number plate is fixed on the side of the case.

The back of the case is sealed with seven external screws, opening U-shaped sapphire fumé crystal to admire the movement. The Stratos is hand winding in the version 40mm and automatic mechanical in the bigger version with an additional counter of the 24 hours of the day.

The dial is composed of two superimposed layers, in the version 45mm, and three layers in the smaller version with the upper one in black with luminous beige hands and indexes. Last but not least in both the Stratos models a handmade and hand-finished alligator leather strap, in black for the 45mm and dark brown for the 40mm, with stainless steel tongue buckle.

U-BOAT SOMMERSO

U-BOAT CHIMERA 46 Limited Edition in Titanium and Carbon

Italo Fontana Creator of U-BOAT, following the motto “ Freedom in creation,” loves to try things out without being influenced by the market or the competition. Therefore he never puts any limit to his creativity even in terms of materials. The new 46 Chimera is crafted in titanium and carbon, two of the toughest materials in the world and extremely lightweight.

The distinctive and iconic case of the Chimera, for this model in titanium grade 5, features a bezel in forged carbon fibre placed in the case mould in a way that makes each watches unique and, from an aesthetic point of view, a marbled effect, satiny and soft to the touch. Each watch is unique because the carbon fibers are distributed in a random manner in the mold. When the material is compressed under heating, it evolves in an unpredictable way.

The dial consists of three superimposed discs with the last layer made of a laser cut fine wire mesh in stainless steel which allows the movement to be half-seen. Under the curved sapphire glass on the face a U-77 top Soigné with black screws, rhodium plated, automatic mechanical chronograph personalized to U-BOAT specifications.

Furthermore nestled between the instantly recognizable left hand crown and its crown guard, a patented sculpted pusher can be depressed to eject the inner-crown from its recessed position and enabling ease of adjustment for both the date and time. The watch also boasts an additional fourth counter showing the 24 hours of the day and marked by a little red hand. Limited edition of 888 pieces.

U-BOAT CLASSICO Tungsten “Long Window”

The Classico model, one of his first iconic designs, Italo Fontana, founder and designer of U-BOAT, now comes in a new version.

He added a bezel in Tungsten, more specifically tungsten carbide, the strongest natural metal to the 45 mm satin and hand finish 316L AISI stainless steel of the case. Commonly used in electrical and military applications, a small amount of tungsten can significantly increase the strength of an alloy, making the watch always polished and “unscratchable”.

In this new model, Italo focused his creativity on the change of stylistic details on the black dial. Along with luminescent beige hands and markers of few hours (4,8,12), the watch boasts on the dial a long vertical window showing the date of today as well as yesterday and tomorrow and still on the dial an additional counter showing the anti and post meridian.

The see-through case back is protected by transparent sapphire crystal skillfully cut with U shape of U-BOAT.  This timepiece features an Innovative and patented crown release system at 8 o’clock for easy time and date setting.

U-BOAT 8051 CLASSICO GMT 45 BE

Always passioned about advanced and unusual techniques and materials, Italo Fontana, creator of U-BOAT, decided to apply, under the thick and scratch-proof sapphire glass of the new Classico GMT, a thin layer of Anatolite, the most effective existing color-change gem.

Unique and rare, this 30ct special stone acquires different colors when viewed under different lights. The ability to change a variety of colors under different light sources allows the dial of the watch to change from amber yellow to green and vice versa.

The wearer will be amazed to see the extreme color change of the watch passing from warm to cold lights, and the other way around.

The 45mm diameter stainless steel case with satin finish, representing Italo’s idea of the pure, timeless design, features hours, minutes, small seconds, date and GMT functions through the U-2893 personalized movement.

Furthermore the Bezel ring is in polished tungsten, the strongest of natural metals and often used in electrical and military applications, where even a small amount can significantly increase the strength of an alloy and making it unbreakable.

Nestled between U-BOAT’s iconic left hand crown and its crown guard, is an innovative and patented pusher that can be depressed to eject the inner-crown from its recessed position enabling ease of adjustment for both the date and time.

U-BOAT Capsule

Inspired directly by the first undersea exploration modules, the U-BOAT Capsule is the latest creation designed by Italo Fontana.

Fascinated by depth gauges made in the early 1930s, Italo designed this watch with their characteristic features in mind, from the rounded shape to the porthole windows with water pressure resistant glass to ensure that the people inside the cabin survived the dive.

These spherical portholes made from strong glass were clamped to the outside surface of the capsule using a system of levers to ensure water resistance. The Capsule watch uses a patented system to clamp the glass to the grade 5titanium case, featuring a system of external fixing levers guaranteed to withstand the pressure exerted by both outside and inside agents.

The two main levers, blocked in place by a third one positioned at 3 o’clock and by special safety screws, press the domed glass in hesalite against the waterproof gasket beneath. This system secures the watch in the event of pressure changes. The entire process of opening and removing the glass can be performed without dismantling any of the watch’s main components (usually the bezel must be removed), but only the glass.  Limited Edition 288 pieces, the watch will come in two different versions: respectively with black and beige colour dial.

In the new Classico Chrono Silver, he expresses his passion for it in its rough essence. The material has not received any specific treatments in order keep it raw and it will be exposed to the natural changes of time.

The concept is to have a living material inviting the owner to take care of his piece over time. Limited edition-only 150 units, the Classico Chrono Silver boasts a 48 mm sterling silver case; an approximately weight of 120 gr; a left hand sided crown; a special protective device and a central horn welded to the case. Regarding the two superimposed dials the watch comes in two versions.

One is black carbon fiber, with the other dial cut, and treated with composite beige pigments. The second model presents one of the superimposed dials in beige, with the other one cut, and treated with composite black pigments. Last but not least the handmade and hand finished dark brown calf leather strap is with a tongue buckle in sterling silver.

U-BOAT Chimera Day-Date watch

Italo Fontana unveils the first U-BOAT watch to spell out both the date and day of the week on its dial, the Chimera Day-Date. Two different cases, both 46 mm diameter, one in stainless steel and one in naturally aged bronze in which the bezel and the back of the case are locked together by external tubing and a customized key that ensures absolute water-proofing.

In the bronze version, the dark brown dial has been laser cut, hand brushed on the surface, hand painted in the central joint one more time in bronze colour and then hand brushed again.

In the stainless steel version instead, the two superimposed dials are in black and their bâton hands, laser cut, have been treated with superluminova. Last but not least to Chimera Day-Date it has been applied the patented system for the retrieval of the watch crown, enabling greater ease of adjustment for date, time and from now on day in its entirety.

U-Boat CHIMERA Collection

U-Boat CHIMERA Collection offers fine automatic mechanical timepieces in several versions: time only, date, chronograph & GMT. Available in different case materials and sizes, the CHIMERA timepieces are also available in jewellery versions set with diamonds or semi precious stones. A special feature of these timepieces is an innovative steel crown release system (patented) at 8 o’clock for easy time and date setting.
