U Boat watches are exclusively made in Italy. They are made in Tuscany and the inspiration and style of that land can be seen in their details. As with the straps, which are handcrafted by experienced Italian artisans with high-quality leathers and materials.
The U-Boat firm arose from a commission from the Italian Navy in 1942, to meet the needs of the pilots. The first design was from Ilvo Fontana and it was a robust design that guaranteed maximum visibility and water resistance. A design with character.
Later, in 2000, his grandson Italo Fontana, improved the design of U boat watches and created his motto: A new dimension in time.
