← Back to brand directory

Italo Fontana founded U-boat Watches in 2000 after he found his grandfather’s watch sketches for a commission for the Italian Navy in 1942, these designs were never made as the Navy did not choose him, but Italo wanted to fulfil his grandfathers' dream and with the help of brand developer Mounir Moufarrige who had worked closely with Montblanc and Panerai he spent 7 years of development to produce his first watch. Based in a villa in the Tuscany, Italian mountains they produce robust dive watches in steel and bronze. The unconventional designs are liked by Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone to name a few.
