Presenting the UBOAT Classico 45mm Bronzo!

The Classico 45 Bronzo features a rugged, military-inspired style that draws upon U-Boat’s design heritage more than any of U-Boat’s other watches. You could easily imagine this watch on the wrist of a naval aviator or at the helm of a ship – the use of naturally aged bronze calls to mind vintage sextants, compasses, and the like.

The bronze case definitely has a vintage look that will develop a patina – and additional character –
as it wears, ages, and even corrodes. As a result, no two watches are identical, and eventually each will reflect how it was used and worn throughout it’s life, creating a one-of-a-kind heirloom piece.
