U-Boat U-42 Bronze And Black Titanium

U-BOAT-001

The main aspect that is the eye-catcher of this Italian watch is the matt black case in combination with the bronze details. The contrast is big and good. The crown, pin of the hook, screws in the bezel, bezel release lever and the little plate on the side of the case with the numbering (limited to 300 pieces only) are all in bronze. The crown on this watch is quite special. After you pulled the little trigger at 7 o’clock (or in the picture above, the small round bronze thing next to the lug) you can pull the long (very long) crown. After that, it works like any  other regular winding and setting crown. The reason for having a long crown like this – in theory – is the easy to use aspect in all sorts of conditions, but we assume that U-Boat is specifically targeting at diver’s using this watch having gloves on under the water surface. Besides that, it just looks cool.
