Italo Fontana has been creating U-Boat in Italy since 2000. Italo's luxury watchmaking brand is renowned for the perfect legibility and bold design of its watches and of course the distinctive high end presence on the wrist. The 50mm x 17mm CERAMIC hypoallergenic case of this build is absolutely jaw dropping! This is high end ceramic which means the content is screened for flaws and the surface is perfect mirror. Contained within is a modified custom decorated Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph, as showcased via the exhibition back and set up for canteen crown left handed configuration. AR coated sapphire crystal of course, protecting highly legible flat black dial with outstanding lume on markers and hands. As you can see, the presentation box custom built for this series is in and of itself a showcase.

Classic watches are usually characterized by elegant design and an understated, quiet look. Not the Rebel Chronograph! They leave the quiet sophistication of dress watches in the dirt and instead made a classic range into a symbol of strength, with dominating wrist presence. It’s a beautifully crafted timepiece that’s a sleek and modern interpretation of the classic military field watch, combining bold fonts and details with classic aspects for the perfect mix of military style and fashion.
Within the watch collecting community, the term "grail" is often thrown around quite alot. In the case of the Renato Martin Braun Moonphase Automatic, to refer to it as a "grail" is appropriate. And, we have to say that when the opportunity to grab a true grail worthy timepiece for less than $1,000 and at a $2,000 discount to what it has been selling at, EVERYONE should sit up, take notice and then take action. As the 4th of July is upon is, we went back to the supplier and secured this deal on the gray dial with black case and strap. Probably the most rare of the options available. We don't have alot of them. Check out the deal and then do what you must to make it happen. You will NOT see a price lower than this. And, to the best of our knowledge, these are the last remaining example in a new condition.
Everyone needs a little swag. It pairs nicely with your watch. Every day easy to wear hangout swag that lets everyone know you are a Watch Talker.
