U-Boat launches the new Batisfera Watch at BaselWorld 2014

Today Italo introduced the Batisfera watch, directly inspired by the shape of the earliest deep-sea capsules. In its novelty, from the Hesalyte glass, raised above the bezel, to its anchor bolts and the crown system, more complex and less pronounced than on other U-BOAT models,  is a reflection of the 1930’s   deep-sea chambers.

The Batisfera model boasts a patented system with levers. After the release of the secure crown, when the lever, at the side of the 50 mm titanium case with stainless steel components, is pressed for closing, it pushes the glass onto a gasket. This system prevents any detachment in case of pressure variations. The entire process of glass fastening happens without removing any other parts from the watch apart from the glass. Batisfera is a limited edition at 299 items.
