It's named after a sub that was used in WWI but really was recognized in WWII as a fighter on the Nazi side.
I mean if you read into stuff like that. U-boat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Otherwise it's just a cool watch.-Patrick

Make sure you try them on first. They are... BIG
They just started making 44mm
Older models have less tooling and detailing and use the MIYOTA quartz + mineral glass
New ones use ETA movements and sapphire glass and have better fit/finish
The 53/55mm use 24mm straps so you can use all your PAM straps. I think the 50mm might as well
Italo Fontana is the guy that is making Welder watches too. Welder gen 1 layout and U-boat gen 1 are very similar
Its a fun watch for casual sporty wear. Doesn't really go well with dressy clothes
I think thats all the important info you need!Current Rides

Owned one; sold it and took a bath on it. May fall into the "fad" category, but it was a fun a watch. I had the 45 mm Classico. Very clean look, but wore bigger than 45 mm. Got lots of compliments as it is noticeable. Exhibition back, but strap was 22 mm; kinda small for a watch that size.
Interesting historical perspective. It was a watch design that competed with Panerai at some point in time to provide watches to the Italian Navy; as we all know, Panerai won. U Boat lost. Approx 10 years ago, a descendent of the designer found pictures of the proposed model and decided to make the watch. Although I feel they have no similarities in terms of looks, quality, or following as Panerai, its an interesting point of history.Un-Retired

they can be had at pretty reasonable prices, my brother-in-law has two of them. I believe he paid 1100 for one and 1400 for the other. Both are similar to the one u posted. Good luck hunting!"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." Albert Einstein
