Designer and watchmaker Italo Fontana’s U-BOAT watches are famous for the use of thick rubber or waxy leather watch bands, ultra-resistant to water through special treatments such as Kodiak, vintage, tattooed or tanned through traditional Florentine craftsmanship methods.
But this is something different. Today U-BOAT unveils a new strap that has never been seen before on a U-BOAT watch available in sizes 22mm and 23mm.
Made of high-end 316 marine grade stainless steel, the new bracelet provides the best corrosion protection and features solid links with screw-in adjustments for a perfect fit and comfortable wear.
With smoothed finishing and personalized with the brand’s logo, the new bracelet boasts a U shaped deployant clasp for added security while wearing the watch.
Doppiotempo and Sommerso, in their steel versions, are now available also with this new bracelet and is available on request for other models in both the current and previous U-BOAT collections.
From May 30 thru June 3, for the occasion of the forthcoming “Couture” in Las Vegas, Italo Fontana will be personally unveiling the updated creations with the new high-end metal straps to all who visit U-BOAT booth CT304.
