In the realm of big watches, U-Boat is king. Starting around 10 years ago, U-Boat was the first company to produce huge watches in 50mm plus diameters. At the time big watches were just beginning to come into vogue, since then big watches have become the norm and U-Boat has flourished. However, there are some folks (myself included) who just don’t have the wrist size to pull off a massive watch. Up until now there have been the 45mm Classico and Flightdeck models for people who want a big watch without going into the 50mms, but the limited edition pieces were always in the bigger size range. This year U-Boat has addressed this by introducing several new series of 46-47mm limited editions, including the U-1001, U-42, and the subject of today’s blog, the U-51.

The "Carbonio" was introduced by U-Boat watches years ago as part of the Classico Automatic Series. For the first year or so, it was a considerable success, and had built up a strong following. Then for reasons unknown to me the Carbon fiber-clad watch was discontinued, making it very difficult and sometimes impossible to obtain for our clients. Finally, the watch is once again available. Because it is produced in smaller quantities then other Classico models, and is the only Classico to offer a dial made entirely of carbon fiber, it will continue to make an important impression on enthusiasts of U-Boat watches.

The most recent U-Boat watches to arrive at Matt Baily were fitted with the new version of the Classico Straps. Many aspects of the straps have improved. The most important improvement is the construction of the strap. The leather used for the body is still very thick, but it is a lot softer and supple then its predecessor. This means that the straps of a new watch will take a lot less 'breaking in' then before.

A Closeup of the Classico Chronograph and the Classico 1001 At the last Baselworld exposition in Switzerland, U-Boat released several new models. Now that two of these models are on the verge of being delivered, it is a good time for me to introduce them to you.

The multi-talented, home-town hero Alexandre Despatie was spotted by one of my clients wearing a 53mm, beige U-Boat Classico. Alexandre was speaking at a recent public appearance when my client noticed the bold, oversize design that U-Boat watches are known for. I find it even more fitting that I'm writing an entry about the world champion and Olympic medalist, as his twenty-fourth birthday on the eighth of June quickly approaches.

The large watch fashion trend is still going strong. It makes quite the fashion statement when you see an elegantly dressed woman or celebrity wearing a large sporty timepiece. It exudes confidence and attitude, while still being functional and incredibly easy to read.

As the tourists start rolling in for the Grand Prix, U Boat continues to draw them in from our store front window. There's something about their look that everyone seems to like. We have a vast array of watch brands, and every price range Bell & Ross Tourbillon, solid Gold Corum Admirals Cup Challenge 44 and the list goes on, but U Boat seems to be what every client has been drawn in to see.
