U-Boat TIPO – Extraordinary at all levels
The sketches by Ilvo Fontana were almost lost forever since in the Second World War, the fine mechanic was expected to develop watches for the Italian navy. But this did not happen and the sketches have been stored in the attic for more than 60 years. There, Ilvos grandson, the fashion designer Italo Fontana, discovered them by accident in the year 2000. The young man immediately recognized the expressive power of the designs and implemented them together with Munir Muffarige.
In honour of his grandfather, the label got the name U-Boat. Today, the brand stands for fancy, extraordinary and very prominent timekeepers. The TIPO emphasizes the exclusive character with elegance and therefore is worldwide limited to only 299 copies.
Experience the TIPO
The cases of the timepieces from the expressive collection are made of titanium or bronze - the watch strap of soft calf leather. The dials are beige or black in order to highlight the contrast to the bronze numerals. Especially striking with the TIPO Collection are also the clearly visible screws on the dial that have long become a trademark of the label. On top of this, the distinctive men's watch also is furnished with luminous hands and indexes. In addition, the U-Boat TIPO has a date and a weekday indicator and a waterproofness of 100 meters. Consequently, the timepiece is the perfect companion on all occasions and goes well with a suit and also with a sportive casual outfit.
