YouTube via HouseOfRam — April 10, 2010 — "The U-Boat Ceramic Bezel FlightDeck Chronograph is rugged, strong, and bold all aspects that point to the brands inclination towards an instrument-like style. The sleek, black ceramic of the bezel and the carbon fiber dial endow the piece with a high-tech elegance that is also suited to all classy outings and dress codes.
The stainless steel case is PVD coated and the bezel, as the name suggests, is made of black ceramic. Ceramic is light and very scratch resistant. It is 50mm in diameter and is equipped with a cap that screws into the left side as always with U-Boat watches of the case and protects an already very sturdy crown. As if the sheer size of the case was not enough, this inconspicuous crown cover adds to the undeniable heft of the watch case, but its position on the left makes the Flight Deck chrono surprisingly comfortable.
About U-Boat watches: In the year 1942, the Fontana workshop was poised to produce a professional timepiece for the distinguished officers of the Italian Navy's submarines (also known as U-boats). Though the project was ultimately scrapped, the distinctive drawings, color samples, and original materials were lovingly preserved for more than sixty years. In 2000, Italo Fontana, a cousin of the workshop's late founder, realized a longtime company dream with the launch of the modern U-Boat brand.
U-Boat watches have oversized cases. Character and strength are a hallmark of the U-Boat brand. All of the line's timepieces are designed with the crown on the left side of the case - a unique and unexpected element making this timepiece extremely comfortable to wear despite its extreme size.
Each of the U-Boat timepieces is powered by Swiss ETA movements, automatic and manually wound alike. All of them are housed in full-bodied, oversized stainless steel cases ranging in size from 45 to 55 millimeters in diameter.
PVD-treated crystals and precious metals meld beautifully with rubber and steel details. From the Thousands of Feet collection, with its particular dodecahedral-shaped case, to the latest Nightvision collection that allows the wearer to change out the colored crystal, each watch expresses its own singular personality.
All of U-Boat's timepieces are designed and assembled in Italy. U-Boat watches have earned worldwide appreciation. Other models are the Classico (Classic) and FlightDeck (Flight Deck).
