U-Boat have created the second generation of the awesome Sommerso family, creating a professional diving level watch that is both practical and refined in looks. This particular piece embodies the ocean where it is more than comfortable to be, with its strong diving features and bright blue accents.
Hand made from AISI 316L Steel; one of the highest grades of steel with hypo-allergenic properties, this piece is robust and ready to tackle any wear and tear day to day life can throw at it. Finished with a satin texture the 46mm body is a great size for all occasions.
The highlighting feature of this particular model is the bright blue superluminova which gives the watch its striking colour and allows the wearer to easily read the dial in lower lights both in and out water. The 12, 8 and 4 numbers are a unique feature of U-boat watches and it is these little avant-garde details that scream U-Boat. Another feature of the dial is the 24-hour sub-dial located near the 4 o’clock position.
The diving element of the watch comes from the watch's 300-meter water resistant capabilities; this allows the watch to be able to be used in a kind of water activity. Another feature is the screw-down crown ensuring the operating element of the watch is locked in place, free from water seepage and covered by U-boats patented crown protector located on the side of the case.
A gummed fabric strap with grey stitching provides a leather look, while the Kodiak waterproofing permits the strap to come into contact with water, unlike leather that will damage easily.
Encased within is a swiss automatic mechanical movement constantly charging from wear on the user’s wrist, that has been configured to U-Boats stringent specification. With a 38-hour power reserve controlled by 4 hertz and 28,800 vibrations per hour, quality is found both inside and out.
Complete with a 2-year international guarantee and stunning U-Boat presentation case, this watch is for a person that seeks uniqueness and quality in abundance.
