This famous brand’s story began back in 1942, with the design and creation of wristwatches for the Italian Navy. Ilvo Fontana designed a particularly robust and easily recognizable wristwatch model: U-BOAT’s success had just begun. Today, Italo Fontana, Ilvo’s grandson, goes on pursuing the family passion and business at the top level of excellence. As a result, oneof- a-kind wristwatches of the highest Tuscan craftsmanship. U-BOAT has a shop in Florence on the Ponte Vecchio, a place of wonder right in the heart of the city.
