Description

The first of the U-Boat U-42 limited edition series was a clearly-not-for-the-average person-sized 53mm giant (itself a ‘reduced version’ of a mindbogglingly sized 65mm 29 piece LE called the U-1942) based on a diver’s watch designed in 1942 by Ilvo Fontana, grandfather of U-Boat President Italo Fontana. Perhaps realizing that although a bit of a lark to create, it left something to be desired in the wearability stakes, U-Boat expanded the U-42 lineup to include 47mm models, presumably on the grounds that a lot more people can actually bring off a still-rather-large 47mm watch on their wrist.

This particular piece is a U-Boat by Italo Fontana U-42 Automatic watch model 6471 in a 47mm titanium case. Limited Edition of 999 pieces. It boasts with a Bi-directional rotating bezel lockable with a folding/ protruding crown that definitely adds novelty value and interest. Sapphire crystal. Black color dial with peach color Super-LumiNova on hands and markers. Hand made brown leather band. Water-resistant to 300 meters. This U-Boat has undergone a thorough inspection of accuracy, functionality, and condition at our U-Boat certified service center to determine the level of reconditioning required to meet our strict standards. It has also been checked against our records to ensure authenticity. We are the official retailers for U-BOAT South Africa. Backed by a 12 month Grand Timepiece warranty.
