Founded in 2001 by Italo Fontana, U-Boat has developed into a brand that commands prevalent respect for its stylish designs and painstaking attention to quality. Every U-Boat timepiece is individually handcrafted in Italy by skilled watchmakers who are dedicated to the most minute level of precision engineering and finishing. From the manufacturing to the final assembly of U-Boat watches, it is evident that the brand takes its commitment to quality, aesthetics and durability very seriously. For watch collectors out there who are seeking a sporty and macho-looking watch, the U-Boat CLASSICO 40MM VINTAGE SCREWS BEZEL that we introduce today would certainly be of interest.
Starting things off, the 40mm diameter case which comes with a flat anti-reflective sapphire crystal, is made up of AISI 316L steel that has multi-finished polishings. First of its iteration, a 6-screws steel bezel gives the watch its sporty, outgoing and masculine vibe, in which what the U-Boat CLASSICO is all about.
Staying true to its “CLASSICO” roots, it bestows a distinguishing “destro” crown on the left side in which harkens back to the hey days where field watches were once designed to be water-proof based off canteen bottles. Therefore, it has a water resistance of 100 meters where you can enjoy both swashbuckling land and underwater adventures while able to look at the time clearly and conveniently. The back of the watch is carefully sealed with a U-cut sapphire crystal as well as 6 screws, ensuring maximum durability in various environmental conditions.
