Continuing our Baselworld 2012 coverage of new products from our brands, we present the latest U-Boat U-42 limited editions which expands the popular line.

U-42 GMT

First up the is the U-42 GMT, a 53mm watch with a titanium case. It uses the styling details of the existing U-42 automatic but adds a 24 hour secondary time zone hand, and GMT hour markers onto the rotating lockable bezel. The signature folding crown and bezel locking mechanism of the U-42 and U-1942 are retained, but the case has a dressier brushed finish to set it apart (existing models use a matte-finish titanium for a more industrial look). As usual movements will be modified Swiss ETA automatic calibres. The GMT will be limited to 300 examples worldwide.

U-42 B and B

The second addition to the U-42 line is the oddly named "B and B". The Bronze and Black is a 53mm U-42 with solid bronze hardware to contrast with the black PVD finished titanium case. With time you can expect the bronze to develop a dark patina that will give the watch a nicely worn appearance, much like the Classico and Flightdeck 925 silver models. Like the GMT the B and B will be limited to 300 examples.
