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.

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.
