Doppiotempo, from U-BOAT a  watch marking simultaneously two different time zones. 

January 2018

"Life is a continuous journey and today our dynamic life communicates it in every moment. You wake up in New York, but tomorrow you're in Moscow, and then you fly to Milan, and fall asleep in London for an upcoming trip to Dubai or Singapore. It would be nice to stop the time but it is impossible. You can keep it under control, mark the different time slots separating you from home time. A time that marks your life on the road and one that brings you back to home and relax, like two lives lived side by side, like a double time.


Italo Fontana extends the Classico line with the Doppiotempo model. Featuring a 46mm bronze case and a bi-directional bezel, the watch boasts an additional hand that allows you to read the time in two different time zones. The rotating bezel with numbers from 1 to 12, can be locked through a lever on the right hand side.


This innovative system offers the opportunity to have two different times at the same time with no need of a proper GMT movement. Waterproof to 100 meters depth, Doppiotempo is available in two versions, respectively with green and brown dial, with brushed bronze numbers and spheres in relief filled with superluminova. Both versions feature a sapphire glass on the front, thick and anti-reflective, and a fumè one cut with a U shape allowing the movement to be seen.


Last but not least, the patented crown release system for easy adjustment of data and time together with a small plaque on one side of the case engraved with the serial number.
