New Classico U-47 in Bronze, the celebration of a success.

Ottobre 2018

After the success of the Classico U-47, Italo Fontana adds to the range a new version, also in 47 mm, in bronze.

The passion of the Tuscan designer for this material has solid roots. An ancient and needful material for humanity, so much to mark deeply one of the periods of human history: the Bronze Age. A metal alloy resistant to corrosion is often used in arms and arts industry.


The idea of this uncoated metal eventually getting patina, unique to each timepiece, its ever changing state, evolving in different colours has always intrigued him so much and pushes him in doing research and using it in various creations as well as this new U-47.


Available with black dial, with indexes and spheres in beige superluminova, Swiss automatic mechanical movement, with time only and date functions, the watch features a back of the case in bronze, with special anti-corrosion treatment, as well as a bronzed glass that reveals its mechanics.

Featuring a strong personality, the U-47 Bronze boasts a calfskin strap made and finished by hand with ancient and traditional Florentine techniques.
