U-Boat known for their avant-garde designs have created the second generation of the Sommerso watch. The Sommerso is designed with professional levels of diving in mind whilst keeping true to the company ethos of unique luxury design. This model’s key feature is the DLC coating to give the watch its strong look.
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 head of the watch is 46mm in size; perfect for any attire.
To match the DLC for a full blackout look the watch has a black dial and strap, a popular look in the watch world. Features of the dial are highlighted with beige superluminova to enhance the readability against the black background and in darker atmospheres. A hint of blue to the tips of the hand are extra nuances of detail that you have got to love. Also, on the dial is the added movement complication of a 24-hour indicator.
With all U-Boat watches the crown is protected thanks to the over-sized cover; this time it covers a screw-down crown locked in place to ensure that the watch has 300 meters of water resistance. 300 meters is more than enough for any water activity in which you may wish to partake.
Encased within is a swiss automatic mechanical movement constantly charging from wear on the user’s wrist, that has been configured to U-Boat’s 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.
A Kodiak waterproofing of a gummed fabric strap with stitching provides a hardwearing strap that is practical and mimics the appearance of a classic leather strap. Leather does not take kindly to water, but with this strap you would have nothing to worry about.
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.
