U-BOAT founder and designer Italo Fontana introduces a new version of his “Classico” design. Designed for both men and women with a strong personality and broad wrists, this new Classico is 47mm in diameter and will be available at a new and apparently appealing prize range, as yet unannounced.
As with the previous editions, it will feature a left-hand crown placement with the characteristic U-BOAT crown guard. Available with a black or beige color dial, the watch features a stainless steel 316L AISI case, satin hand-finish with a serial number engraved on a small plate fixed on the side of the case.
On the dial the ‘U’ in U-BOAT replaces the index and number at 12 o’clock. The watch features hours, minutes, seconds and date functions through the U-28 automatic mechanical, personalized to U-BOAT specifications. In addition to the hand-made and hand finished calf leather belt, an extra strap with Kodiak with water repellent treatment is included in the box.
