New Classico Design By Italo Fontant: U-BOAT Italo Fontana introduces a new version of his “Classico” design. Representing his idea of the pure, timeless design that does not fade and die like passing fashions, the Classico captures the essence of the brand’s popular style. Designed for men and women with a strong personality, this Classico now in size 47, will be available on the market at a new and appealing price range. Like the previous editions, it will feature a left hand crown placement with the characteristic U-BOAT crown guard. Available with black and beige color dial, the watch boasts a stainless steel 316L AISI case, satin hand finish with a serial number engraved on a small plate fixed on the side of the case. On the dial the U letter of U-BOAT replaces the index and number at 12 o’clock. The watch features hours, minutes, seconds and date functions through the U-28 automatic mechanical, personalized to U-BOAT specifications. In addition to the hand made and hand finished calf leather strap, an extra strap in Kodiak with water repellent treatment is included in the box. The Gentleman Magazine | 11
