Founded in the year 2000 by Italo Fontana in Tuscany Italy, U-Boat is known for its oversized cases and big watches. They stem from drawings Italo found of his grandfather’s who was creating watch designs for the Italian Navy during World War II. Inspired, Italo opted to start his own Italian-based watch company. Based in Lucca, Italy, U-Boat watches use Swiss movements. U-Boat watches have a truly distinctive look to them that can be spotted from across a crowded room. Collections include the Classico, the Chimera, the U42, and the recently released Capsoil with fluid inside.
