About U-BOAT

LUCCA 1942 –  Ilvo Fontana, crafter of precision engineering instruments, received a prestigious commission from the Italian Navy: to design and build a new model of watch for its Navy pilots. This challenge meant satisfying the high quality standards of the Navy and respecting very precise technical specifications, but above all guaranteeing maximum reliability and time visibility in any light and weather condtion. However, circumstance at that time did not allow the project to materialize.

In 2000 Italo Fontana, Ilvo’s grandson, came across these precious designs, which were to become his source of inspiration for the creation of the first U-Boat watch and his motto: A New Dimension in Time.
