Posted on 17 December 2009 by John Biggs

While most U-Boat sales are for the basic Classicos and Flightdeck chronos, I find that Italo Fontana (U-Boat’s founder and designer) really gets to flex his design muscles with off-beat pieces like the U-1001. As with most U-Boat watches the U-1001 is not suited for everyone, but perfect for some. It is a large watch with a knack for attracting attention. While it is definitely a fashion accessory, it boasts superlative quality and all the features of high-end diving watch.

The Buran Stingray: Big

Posted on 14 December 2009 by John Biggs

I’ve been lax in my coverage of Russian watches lately. Most Russians do not have, how you say, very high quality but they have lots of features and plenty of style.

This dude at Russia2All covers the Buran Stingray, a diver that looks like someone stole the depth gauge off of a Victorian-era submersible.

This “style,” if you want to call it that, came about in WWII and is very similar to the old-timey Cartier Pasha. Those bars are to keep the crystal from blowing up under water. This watch has an ETA 7750 movement modified to remove the chrono parts.

Apparently this watch was made in Switzerland, a move by Buran to lend a little credibility to their brand. If you’re in the market for a watch, take a look at the Russians.
