U-BOAT BY ITALO FONTANA

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 pilots. This challenge meant satisfying the high quality standards of the Navy and respecting very precise technical specifications, but above all guaranteeing maximum visibility and reliability in any light and weather condition. However, circumstance at that time did not allow the project to materialize. In 2000 Italo Fontana, Ilvo’s grandson, came across these prestigious designs, which were to become his source of inspiration for the creation of the first U-Boat watch and his new dimension in time.
