U-Boat Sommerso 46mm, beyond the deep
U-BOAT reinforces its collection of diving watches with three extraordinary Sommerso creations, with a graduated bezel, two-tone dial, numbers and indexes treated with white superluminova, and water-resistant up to 300 meters depth.
Born from Italo Fontana’s passion for scuba diving, the Sommerso embodies the entire DNA of U-BOAT, with all the mandatory technical requirements for a professional diving watch, combined with a style that makes it perfect for any occasion.
These new 46mm Sommerso watches, previewed at Watches & Wonders, boast a satin-finished stainless steel (AISI 316L) case in three dial versions, with original colors and characterized by the indispensable unidirectional rotating bezel with a ceramic insert, an essential element of a professional dive watch for calculating dive time remaining.
The dials feature a predominant color in the upper part that fades into a deep black in the lower part, with two shades of color, also reproduced in the respective bezels, available in the following combinations: burgundy, dark green, and blue, all fading into black. The two-tone rotating bezels adopt the same color combinations as the dials, except for the burgundy, model, which features a completely black bezel.
These color variations harmonize, under the anti-reflective sapphire crystal, with a 24-hour indicator, a date window with a small magnifying lens on the crystal for easy reading in any lighting condition, luminous white indexes and numerals for nighttime visibility, as well as hands adorned with small red details.
On the left side of the case, is the iconic crown cover, allowing free movement of the wrist, secured by its respective protective hook. On the side, there is a plaque with the engraved serial number, while the case back is sealed with 7 screws, ensuring water resistance beyond 300 meters. Inside, the Swiss precision movement is powered by the automatic Sellita SW200 caliber.
Aesthetic and technical aspects, elegance and sportiness are perfectly fused in these three Sommerso watches, available with a steel bracelet or a vulcanized rubber strap. U-BOAT identity not only for diving enthusiasts.
