In 1942, Ilvo Fontana, crafter of precision engineering instruments, received a prestigious commission from the Italian Navy to design and build a new model of watch for thier pilots. This challenge meant satisfying the high quality standards of the Navy and respecting very precise technical specifications, but above all guaranteeing maximum visibility and reliability in any light or weather condition. However circumstances at that time did not allow the project to materialise. In 2000 Italo Fontana, Ilvo's grandson, discovered these precious designs, which were to become his source of inspiration for the creation of the first U-Boat watch and his new dimension in time.
