The U-Boat watch company was founded by Italian watchmaker Italo Fontana in 2000. After having discovered his grandfather's sketches of robust watches from the 1940s, Fontana was inspired to make the decades old designs a reality. Key features of U-Boat watches are its imposing case size, prominent crown guards, and a highly-legible dial. U-Boat watches are among the largest of their kind, with distinct styles that are sought after by collectors including film, sports, and rock stars.
