U-Boat watches - The Fontana Family was always full of bright, innovative minds. They had a workshop inU-Boat Watch Italy, where they created products they labeled with their brand name U-Boat. In 1942, the head of the company, Ilvo Fontana, was asked by the Italian government to create a very complicated, very genius watch for the Italian Navy pilots and submarines operators. The government requested that the watch had a big, bold face to it so that the men using them could know the time just by quickly glancing at their wrist. Also, the government requested that the watch would be readable in almost any form of light and can make it through any weather conditions. They were to be very original and one hundred percent accurate. Excited with this request, Fontana got to work very quickly on his newest product. Once he had the design laid out and the mechanics all arranged, the government decided to not go forward with this watch, therefore canceling their request for Fontana. Disappointed, Fontana set aside his plans and stored them away for over sixty years.

In the year 2000, a late cousin of Ilvo, Italo Fontana, took over the Fontana Family’s workshop. He felt as though their company could do more; be a lot more successful than it already was. So, one day, he came across his cousin’s watch plans. Studying them very carefully, Italo decided that this watch was what he was looking for. He worked on the watch and, once he began to sell it, U-Boat became one of the top watch brands in the world. Shortly after, he became a world wide success story.

U-Boat watches are some of the most unique watches you can get. While other watch manufacturers prefer to use small faces, U-Boat prefers to use bigger ones. This gives these watches a very original look and makes them so easy to read in a much shorter time. The different styles and colors and collections allow a watch for just about any man out there. You like you’re individuality. You like your personality. You like your style. You wouldn’t change a thing about you. Well, you don’t need to have a distinct individuality or personal look in order to pull off a U-Boat watch. There’s a U-Boat watch for any style, look, and personality out there!
