The story of U-Boat watches is fascinating and brilliantly reveals the inspiration behind every modern release today. In 1942, Ilvo Fontana, a talented craftsman of precision engineering instruments, was commissioned by the Italian Navy to design and manufacture watches for its naval pilots. The watch must follow a set of very precise technical specifications, while ensuring maximum reliability and readability under any light or weather conditions. However, due to the circumstances at the time, the project was never realized. Then, in 2000, Iivo’s grandson Italo Fontana encountered these designs and decided to use them as the inspiration for the first U-Boat watch.
The U-Boat Classico series is a good illustration of the brand’s technical prowess and their ability to draw inspiration from the past and transform it into the handsome, trend-setting design of today’s modern people. Those who wear bronze like the new U-Boat Classico U-47 bronze limited edition are directly related to their past connections with the navy, and bronze is widely used in deep-sea helmets and naval buildings. With its evolving unique patina, bronze is also the most popular material in watchmaking this year. When exposed to moisture in the air and pH in sweat, the bronze case of this U-Boat Classico U-47 Bronze Limited Edition will completely change color, which means there will be 50 limited editions with its unique case The wearer will be completely customized by it.
As all U-Boat watches expect, the U-Boat Classico U-47 limited edition bronze case is firmly placed on the wrist, reaches 47mm in diameter, and displays a distinctive crown on the left. The unique serial number is engraved on a small plate fixed on the side of the case, and the screw-in case back cover is treated with a special anti-corrosion applique, which can delay the chemical reaction of the bronze on the skin.
Through the smoke-proof glass back cover, you can admire the automatic mechanical movement that is fully customized according to U-Boat specifications so that it can be controlled with the valve stem at the 9 o’clock position. The gold-plated swing rotor is laser cut to display the brand’s logo and rotates every time the wrist moves to provide a 44-hour power reserve. The 26 jewellery movements also operate at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and provide a central hand for hours, minutes and seconds, and display a date window at 3 o’clock.watches on discount
Although bronze has become a common case material for manufacturers in many industries, it is new to use it with bright red straps and red accented dials. The eye-catching red laser-cut strap looks very close to the body, hand-finished from calfskin, and has a natural distressed look. The red strap with bronze pin buckle perfectly matches the red tone on the dial, including luminous red hands, red Arabic numerals at 4 and 8 o’clock, glossy red luminous indexes and the iconic’U’ logo. The 12 o’clock frosted black dial is also made of visible rubies at 6 o’clock. This is the characteristic mark of all U-Boat Classico watches, located under the sapphire crystal glass.
