U-Boat U-42 Submersible Watch

The inspiration for many of the U-Boat timepieces are derived from the world of innovative engineering Рfrom race cars to fighter planes. Last year, U-Boat introduced the U-1942 watch based on a concept originally created by U-Boat founder Italo Fontana’s grandfather who pitched the watch idea to the Italian military in 1942. The U-1942 case measured in at a massive 65mm. However this year, U-Boat offer a toned down version of the U-1942 with the unveiling of the U-42. A 53mm casing places the U-42 in the same range as conventional U-Boat offerings with a titanium case body ensuring that in the case of an inevitable knock, the watch will be sure to come away relatively unscathed. Other notable elements and characteristics are the left-sided crown system and a waterproof rating to 300 meters. Only 999 timepieces will be available, so good luck and happy hunting!
