Presenting the Capsoil watch, the latest in a long line of audacious designs to come from the mind of the famed watch designer Italo Fontano. This U-Boat watch is like nothing you will have seen before, going beyond the boundaries of design. The visual aesthetics of this piece are sure to be a talking point, but the oil used is there for more than just show.
U-Boat have taken a swiss made electromechanical movement and have completely immersed it in a low viscosity lubricating oil, that not only creates the unique visual appeal of this watch but also allows low maintenance of the movement due to the parts being likely to succumb to friction. The oil fills the entire case front and back with a singular compensation bubble that remains just under the glass on the dial of the watch, and amplifies the view of the hands greatly and freely moves around.
DLC stands for diamond-like carbon; this is a class of amorphous carbon material that can carry some of the same properties of diamond. This means that the coating to the steel provides a hardness and resistance to scratches just like diamonds, as well as the cool black finish the robust casing houses the movement dial and oil with a domed sapphire crystal allowing for perfect vision of the watch. The dome glass paired with oil inside creates the illusion of the absence of glass.
Fitted with a water-resistant lined black leather strap and steel tongue buckle, the watch screams U-boat with the nuances of unique quality used throughout, for which U-Boat have become revered for worldwide. This watch is complete with the stunning U-Boat presentation box and a 2-year international warranty.
