The Classico model, one of his first iconic designs, Italo Fontana, founder and designer of U-BOAT, now comes in a new version.
He added a bezel in Tungsten, more specifically tungsten carbide, the strongest natural metal to the 45 mm satin and hand finish 316L AISI stainless steel of the case. Commonly used in electrical and military applications, a small amount of tungsten can significantly increase the strength of an alloy, making the watch always polished and "unscratchable".
