Original U-BOAT designer Ilvo Fontana was commissioned by the Italian Government in 1942 to design a watch for use by pilots of the Italian navy. His plan was to produce a watch with an emphasis on high visibility, as he knew the pilots would encounter low light and bad weather conditions. The design continued, but the order for the initial production did not come about, meaning that the design remained on paper alone for over 50 years. In 2000 Italo Fontana decided to develop the idea of the U-Boat watch, constantly tweaking it to become the brand we know today, with a nod to the past and one towards future trends.
When you see the “Made in Italy” marking on a U-Boat watch, you know you are looking at quality craftsmanship. The designer’s name, Italo Fontana, is undoubtedly Italian, but the name U-Boat evokes images of German military submarines. These timepieces embody force and style and reveal the unique personality of the man behind the revival, Italo Fontana. Every individual U-Boat watch is handcrafted in Italy and each tiny detail is overseen by Italo Fontana himself.
