The U-Boat Watch has an interesting story. During WWII, the Italian government commissioned watchmaker Ilvo Fontana to design a watch for the Navy. His sturdy, functional design emerged, but the government contract never came. For over 50 years the design collected dust, until in 2000, when the young Italo Fontana dusted it off and finally developed the U-Boat watch. This model features an all-titanium case with an understated matte black finish. Waterproof to 300-meters, only 300 of this limited-edition model will be made.
