U-Boat Italo Fontana U-42 GMT Watch

U-Boat Italo Fontana U-42 GMT Watch U-Boat’s Italo Fontana launches the GMT a  Pre-Basel novelty and evolution of the original U-42, a great example of design purity with strong timeless and recognized identity.  Based on a watch developed by Italo Fontana’s grandfather in 1942 for the Italian Navy, the original U-42 was presented, for the first time, at Baselworld 2010 and followed by two chronograph versions in 2011.

This U-Boat Italo Fontana U-42 GMT Watch features 3 time zones, titanium bezel, sapphire glass, brass dial & hands, a 53mm case and is resistant to water / pressure to 300 meters.

Additionally the brown leather strap is handcrafted is fitted with a titanium tongue buckle. The titanium plate below the case is can be personalized.

I really love this watch. The military feel isn’t too bold so we are left with a watch that can be worn everyday without clashing with your look. At press time there is no word on price.
