U-Boat Time Favorites…

The Tuscany region of central Italy is renowned for many things, including its lush landscapes, fine cuisine and wine. The region is  the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and it is where artists Leonardo da Vinci, Lorenzo de Medici and Niccolo Machiavelli were born. Michelangelo’s infamous statue of David and the Leaning Tower of Pisa are both in the Tuscany region.

The region is also the birthplace and headquarters of U-Boat watches, which was founded in the year 2000 by Italo Fontana, who came across watch designs by his grandfather Ilvo Fontana, who was commissioned by the Italian Navy in 1942 to create high-performance, precision crafted time instruments of high quality standards to be worn by Italian military seamen.

Today, each and every U-Boat watch is produced at the same Tuscany facility where the brand was founded sixteen years ago and each boasts the distinction of being Made In Italy as well.
