U-Boat Replica Watch

Authorised retailer for U-Boat Watches. U-Boat watches are known for having features which distinguish them perfectly from other timepieces. These watches feature Swiss movements but are otherwise proudly Made in Italy. The brand has an interesting history which actually dates back to 1942. But the brand today is incredibly modern but built on its unique background and unbelievable quality watches.The story of U-Boat watches dates back to 1942 when Ilvo Fontana was commissioned to produce a timepiece for Italian naval officers. These watches were set to become the pride of the U-Boat officers crafted by the best Italian watchmaker. However, for unknown reasons, this project was scrapped before any of these watches could reach the wrists of the naval officers. Luckily, the designs, colour samples and materials were preserved for over 60 years. Italo Fontana, a cousin of the watchmaker, used these early designs to finally bring the project to life with the founding of the U-Boat brand.
