If you need a classy and big looking watch, what better one to get then the U-Boat ‘Italo Fontana U-42′. It measures at a whopping 65mm (incld. the crown) and features leather straps.
“The bi-directional rotating bezel is lockable with a lever on the right side of the case. The U-42’s winding crown was built in two parts: one is attached to the movement stem whilst the other is hinged to it with a pivot. This gives a flexible joint configuration which allows the crown to protrude considerably from the watch itself for winding and setting, yet returning it to a protected, hidden position diminishing the side clutter when in action.”
This is indeed very impressive.
