U-BOAT | 2011

U-BOAT by Italo Fontana releases their latest novelties for 2011.

This time Italo plays with material such as gold, ceramic and titanium and with different colors and sizes.

A new version of acclaimed novelty, U-51 Rattrapante, but only seen from outside. Italo plays with colors using small gold details over the colossal 51 mm in diameter black case, not to mention the impressive crown cap and pushers. From the inside he changes mechanisms turning the watch into a Chrono for a limited edition of only 99 items in perfect U-BOAT style.


U-1942 and the U-42 are with no doubt based on a watch developed by Italo Fontana’s grandfather for the Italian Navy. At BASELWORLD 2010 Italo unveiled the U-42 watch inspiring awe amongst U-BOAT watch enthusiasts. The limited edition U-42 was based in fact on the U-1942 but scaled down to a 53 mm. One year after, same place, Italo introduces the chrono version in same size 53 and in a bit smaller size 47 both in black dial and limited edition of 999 pieces.

  U-42 CHRONO 53 mm / U-42 CHRONO 47 mm

The 1001 designation is symbolic both for the 1001 limited run per color as well as each watch being water resistant to 1001 meters. Unveiled last year, this time the Classico U-1001 comes in two separate colorways: Blue and Orange and it is slightly reduced in size with a diameter of 47 mm. The U-BOAT U-1001 is a watch that pays tribute to Mr. Fontana’s passion for diving offering a bold, clear, technical design reminiscent of high tech instruments.


Italo pushes to the extreme a timeless design: Classico. Great example of design purity, this automatic winding chronograph in 300 units only with black dial, green or red hands impresses with its bold, aggressive character coming from the use of titanium and of course its total black look.


I personally like this one! Cant wait to go to their Resorts World store to try this on.
