This is a preview of one of the three new watches that will be presented by U-Boat at Baselworld next month.

The 1001, before its unusual features are unveiled, will be presented to the public in an aluminium technological casket, visible only through a riveted port hole, reminiscent of a deep abyss.

On opening the box, the unusual nature of the 1001 will be immediately apparent, starting with the 55-millimetre diameter grade 2 natural titanium box, with the distinctive position of the rim protection on the left, helium valve and titanium plate bearing the serial number.

The face is easy to read because it has hours, minutes, seconds and the date at 4 o’clock. There are supernova pigments with beige, orange or blue, which make the white U1001 writing in relief stand out.

Waterproof down to 1001 metres, owing to the anti-scratch sapphire glass which is 5.5mm thick, the 1001’s heart pulsates as a result of an automatic mechanical movement with a reserve of 40 hours.

The back is screwed on with engraved serial numbering 1001 pieces, a black non-allergic and harmless rubber strap with a titanium attachment and a deploying closing mechanism.

A truly special model which brings together deep passion and avant-garde technology.
