U-Boat cheap watches are known for their functions that distinguish them perfectly from other timepieces. These watches use Swiss movements, but are proud of being “Made in Italy”. The brand has an interesting history that actually dates back to 1942. But today’s brand is very modern, but built on its unique background and incredible quality watches.
History of U-Boat watches
The history of U-Boat watches can be traced back to 1942, when Ilvo Fontana was commissioned to produce a timepiece for Italian naval officers. These watches will be the pride of U-Boat officers made by the best Italian watchmakers. However, for unknown reasons, this project was cancelled before any of these watches reached the naval officer’s wrist. Fortunately, the design, color samples and materials have been preserved for more than 60 years. With the creation of the U-Boat brand, the watchmaker’s cousin Italo Fontana used these early designs to finally bring the project to life.
Made in Italy, Swiss Dynamics
The U-Boat watch series is based on the old design of the Italian master watchmaker, so it is correct that the watch is made in Italy itself. But when it comes to high-quality precision, these outstanding watches require the highest-quality movements. For this reason, U-Boat watches are proudly made in Italy, but equipped with high-quality movements from Switzerland. This fusion of high-quality Italian craftsmanship and Swiss precision has brought an outstanding watch brand to the market, which proudly brings together the best watchmaking capabilities of the two countries.
