The distinguishing features common to all U-BOAT watches are their quality, the materials selected, the craftsmanship involved in their construction and the “Made in Italy” factor. Boasting Swiss movements, all the watches are produced one by one and assembled by craftsmen at the brand’s headquarters in Lucca, Tuscany, the homeland of Italo and U-BOAT. The majority of U-BOAT time pieces use advanced and unusual techniques and materials - acid baths, carbon fibre, etc. All materials interest Italo, from classic steel to titanium, tungsten, carbon, bronze, gold, silver and ceramic. Italo loves to try things out without being influenced by the market. Italo Fontana also has a perfect understanding of the meaning of innovation. Whether by introducing new ideas, devices and methods, or by translating ideas or inventions into systems and mechanisms, he consistently creates value for customers.
