U-Boat U-42 Chrono

by Time&Style Staff

You don’t have to brave 20,000 leagues to sport the look of a slick submariner. The U-Boat U-42 takes the most aesthetically pleasing elements of the undersea behemoths (industrial might and bravery, not cabin fever and claustrophobia) and combines them into a suave timepiece. Inspired by his grandfather and created for the Italian Navy, Italo Fontana designed the U-42, limited at 999 units, with engravings by mechanical pantograph and galvanized, with a window crown built in two parts to give you a flexibility with winding and setting without sacrificing the subtlety of the look. It’s also water-tight, though, if you’re down below and you’re getting that wet, you probably have bigger things to worry about.
