Generally, as most people and manufacturers of watches do know, the luxury watch industry is one that is really hard to break into as there are very few companies worldwide that have been able to achieve success in the first decade of operation. Basically, behind every U Boat, Italo Fontano, the founder declares that there is unique inspiration and style. These pieces are rare and also not designed for everyone thus it might be a little hard to find a u boat watch for sale in just any shops. They are made to be rare and not mass produced to increase their worth and demand.
The materials selected, specific features, and their quality is what makes these watches really unique. Before they were founded, Fontana’s grandfather had designed some timepieces for the military during World War II although they were never produced. He found these designs and started a company to make luxurious watches that used those designs as their inspiration. The resulting products are simply unique, interesting as well as durable.
The left hand configuration on the watches is what has largely attributed to its success and it is also the major factor that inspired Italo Fontano to start producing the watches. Every model of this watch is a limited edition which is a clear indication that they are not mass produced but rather, exclusive, luxurious items. They are fully designed and assembled in Italy which is a total contrast to the dominance of Swiss in this field. Its water resistance is said to be up to 300 meters
The original mechanical models, most of which are still in production made the use of Swiss mechanical movements and feature the improved cases.
Most of the innovations in these watches come in their styling, which is certainly unusual and highly unique as well. Their entire watches feature oversized faces and many cases and most of them also have a crown on the left side of the watch. They have steel, rubber or leather straps. While their time pieces are mainly round in shape. There is also plenty of diversity to ensure that whatever you will buy is not common.
These watches are simply luxurious, eye-catching and durable as well. However, they may not be suitable for everyone as they are huge in size and considering they were initially meant for the military guys. If you manage to grab yourself one of these, then you might as well consider yourself lucky as you will be sure to receive high-end service and quality watches as well.
Just as most high end watchmakers, the company tries to restrict the sale of their products by selecting authorized dealers and selling only to their own stores. They usually do this in order to keep their demand high thus enabling them to maintain the high prices. They would not want to dilute their brand name by making the watches ‘too available.’ Typically, they are luxurious and not common hence the only way a u boat for sale is by searching for the online or rather, simply visiting their stores and a few of the high-end jewellery stores.
