U-BOAT Classico 47 U-1001 TIT

U-BOAT presents a new version of its Classico U-1001 model that was introduced for the first time in 2011. The new model 47 U-1001 TIT pays tribute to one of the Italo Fontana’s passions, diving. It is built to withstand the rigorous demands of professional diving and it offers a bold, clear, technical design reminiscent of high-tech instruments.

At the beginning in 55 mm size, one of the biggest watches available today and one of the biggest U-BOATs of all time, the 2017 version has been scaled down to 47mm and it is made in titanium with a completely renewed design. Unlike the original series, this U-1001s is limited to 300 pieces only with numerals, indexes and hands in blue color against the black surface of the dial, made up of two superimposed layers. The watch is water-resistant to 1001 meters and features a helium escape valve and a double screw-down crown underneath the massive signature crown cap.
The bezel keeps the 6,4 mm thick sapphire glass locked to the case and it is framed by 4 external and prominent screws set at 2,4,8,10 meanwhile the back of the case consists of one piece only screwed to the case. On the side of the case is highly visible the sapphire glass pressured by the case and the bezel. The strap, in rubber with lining calf subdued to a Kodiak water-repellent treatment, is secured to the case through an ease and quick release device in Titanium and fastened to it.
