New U-Boat U-51 46mm Limited Edition

2011 octobre 21

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.

U-Boat Titanium Flightdeck

2011 mai 11

The U-Boat range is divided into three main models – Classico, Flightdeck and Thousands of Feet. One of the most popular models is the Flightdeck Chronograph which has become one of U-Boat’s signature designs, featuring an automatic Valjoux chronograph in a sporty case with very legible dials. Traditionally the Flightdeck features a stainless steel case, but a few lesser known variations exist – the ceramic and titanium models. What we have here is one of my favourite U-Boats and the latest addition to the Flightdeck line – reference 1881 in titanium...

Beware of Fake U-Boat Watches on Craigslist

2009 mai 11

For every luxury product, there are fakes and replicas, so I guess it was only a matter of time before the counterfeiters turned their attention to the popular U-Boat watches. One particular vendor situated in Montreal uses a link to MattBaily.ca to promote his products on Craigslist. The watches that he shows are replicas of the Flightdeck MSG and MSB with different colour combinations. The watches display what looks like a Unitas manual winding movement, but some have the word 'AUTOMATICO' etched into the back of the case. Some models also mention 'CRONOGRAFO' on their case-backs. This is pretty suspicious, as non of the models shown are chronographs! The vendor sometimes claims that they are pre-owned and prices range from $700 to $1,000.

Women living large

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.

U-Boat Drawing Them In

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.

Review: U-Boat Flightdeck CAB W PVD Chronograph

2008 février 28

Throughout the three years that we have had U-Boat watches, they have grown from fashion, quartz watches to well-built luxury watches with mechanical Swiss movements. Amongst the most recent models is the Flightdeck CAB W. It runs on the infamous Valjoux (ETA) caliber 7750, and is encased in a 50mm case, blackened by PVD treatment, and fitted with a sapphire crystal.

Unforgettable Win for the Montreal Canadiens

2008 février 20

The Montreal Canadiens Stage a Spectacular Record-Braking Comeback. Last night was by far the most exciting night of hockey that I've witnessed since Jacques Demers called Marty McSorley on an illegal stick in 1993. What I saw was our Montreal Canadiens staging a miracle comeback from a five goal deficit, at the Bell Centre, against the New York Rangers. Then, as if that was not enough, Captain Koivu beat Lundqvist in the shootout to win the game.
