By TLex Early last summer U-Boat released a stunning limited edition diver called the U-1942, I was completely smitten, but alas only 29 piece were made . . .
This year at Basel World U-Boat will unveil the U-42 a close relative of the U-1942, while still a limited edition it will be produced in far higher numbers, 999 to be precise. The U-42 will come in the very cool presentation box seen below. A slightly lower 300m depth rating is the only apparent difference that I have spotted between the two editions so far, but I would imgine that this version is going to be considerably smaller than the 65mm U-1942, either way this is great news; stay tuned for more exciting dive watch news from Italo Fontana, soon . . .
