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 awesome CLASSICO 45 BRONZO CA BR carries the ethos of a classic watch whilst making a bold statement. This particular chronograph boats a 45mm case, made from naturally aged bronze that will age over time with a unique patina meaning each watch will have its own distinctive one of a kind finish, with 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 chronograph movement, personalised to accommodate the crown stem at 9 o’clock, with a laser cut rotor, all visible through the U-shaped fumè glass case back showcasing the skeleton balance wheel. The movement runs at frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz, with a power reserve of 48 hours. The case displays a sophisticated brown and beige dial with 4 sub-dials. The dial is finished with Arabic numerals and markers and three hands that have been treated with superluminova and a red hand displaying a 24 hour indicator with a date window displayed at the 9 o’clock position. This watch has the added feature of boasting the metal from which it is made with an engraved plate at 6 o’clock all visible through a sapphire crystal.
