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.
DOPPIOTEMPO is a hardy looking watch from the creations of Italo Fontana, designed to give the wearer the ability to view two different time zones in one spectacular looking piece, coincidently the literal translation of doppio tempo is double time.
This particular watch boasts a bold 46mm case made from stainless steel in a vintage satin finish. The crown on the left-hand side of the timepiece provides great comfort for any wearer which has the iconic U-BOAT patented device for protecting the crown.
Housed inside the case is a Swiss automatic movement which can be viewed through the fumè ‘U-shaped’ glass on the case back. The movement runs at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour!
Displayed on the dial is an enticing black finish; accompanied with a plethora of superluminova for effortless viewing, the luminous coating is applied to the hands, numbers and indexes.
The second-time zone function is utilised through an extra pointer hand on the dial that runs for 24 hours as opposed to 12 in one cycle. The watch also has the added functionality of a mini second’s timer and a date window at 9 o’clock.
Fitted to the watch head is a hand finished calf leather strap in black with water resistance lining. Water resistant to 100 metres, the watch is secured with a stainless-steel tongue buckle.
This watch is complete with a two-year international guarantee and a stunning U-Boat presentation box.
