A story of inspiration and style is the driving force behind every U-Boat watch, with roots dating back to 1942. Today headed by Italo Fontana in the small town of Lucca in Italy, Fontana thanks to his wonderful design skills has taken the U-Boat brand to great heights of popularity whilst still remaining a rare sought-after product in the luxury watch market.
The CLASSICO 38 black Mother of pearl is a sophisticated elegant touch to the ethos of U-Boat. This classic, elegant design is made up in much smaller than usual 38mm case, made from AISI 316L Stainless Steel which is one of the highest-grade steels often found in luxury goods, due to its hypo-allergenic properties.
Featured is the iconic configuration of the crown fitted to the left-hand side of the case, with U-Boats patented device for protecting the crown. The case houses a Swiss made fully automatic 25 jewel movement, personalised to accommodate the crown stem at 9 o’clock, with a laser cut rotor, partly visible on the 7-external screwed case back. The movement runs at frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz, with a power reserve of 38 hours.
Within the case is the beautiful turquoise mother-of-pear dial that is finished with 42 white brilliant-cut sapphires to make up the Arabic numerals at 12, 4 and 8 and two steel hands. A date window displayed at the 3 o’clock position all visible through a sapphire crystal glass. The watch head is fitted to a grey hand finished alligator strap, lined with a pink Alcantara material, with a steel tongue buckle that is 18/18mm.
This watch is complete with a two-year international guarantee and a stunning U-Boat presentation box.
