Italian word for type, exemplar, model; “TIPO” is the new creation conceived by Italo Fontana, the Creator of U-BOAT, and just introduced at Baselworld 2015. A completely new design for U-BOAT, and new horizon to explore for its designer. The watch boasts the same U-BOAT identity and temper of all the other creations but with a completely new shape. It features a new-patented system for the crown lock with a support and a slide pusher protecting the crown from the water pressure, accidental impact and activation. The 50 mm case with a never seen before shape consists of three parts with a bezel locked to the sapphire glass by a new Cross Lock system with two huge screws. The watch comes in two versions: Titanium and Bronze case (18,6 mm thickness) both featuring details with subsequent PVD treatment.Furthermore the two different TIPOs are also available in version 01 and 02: black dial and beige both with indexes and numbers in brown luminova.
