U-Boat - watches & reviews

In 1942, Ilvo “The Watchmaker” Fontana was commissioned by his country to produce a timepiece that would become the pride of the Italian naval officers. These designs and prototypes lay dormant for decades until Italo Fontana, Ilvo’s nephew, rediscovered them in 1999. The old drawings seemed still relevant even after all those years and they became the foundation of today’s U-BOAT collections.
