Two successful models of the U-Boat Capsoil Doppiotempo watch come together. Combining the oil immersion technology and second time zone function of the Capsoil watch, the two new models are available in steel or black DLC-coated versions, with a wrist diameter of 45 mm, bold and confident.
Anyone who knows Italo Fontana’s work will know that any new release, whatever comes from U-Boat, is bound to be unusual and striking – a groundbreaking concept. Watches like the U-Boat Capsoil keep surprising us. This time, the brand has combined its oil-filled technology with the concept of a second time zone. Before that – a little about the Capsoil watch itself.
The U-Boat Capsoil fake watch subtly creates the illusion of a watch without a glass case. How it does this is very unique. Available in stainless steel or black DLC treated cases – both options always feature a unique dial filled with oily fluids. The watch looks like a 3D bubble on the wrist – the oily liquid behind the glass actually turns the dial into a rich, absolutely black display. The U-Boat’s oily liquid doesn’t just fill the dial. This oil bath completely submerges the electromechanical devices of the movement. Italo Fontana expressed his feelings about innovation at the beginning of the Capsoil release:
“Capsoil transcends the boundaries of traditional design, combining innovative features with vintage-inspired lines, proving it’s a leader in the world watch market.”
The sense of floating bubbles is further enhanced by the three-dimensionality and deep and captivating beauty of the U-Boat Capsoil watch. The entire watch is filled with this innovative liquid – that is, with the exception of a bubble, which moves across the dial surface as it creates movement. The air bubbles allow the oil to move freely under the watch’s sapphire crystal front face, but also compensate for different fluctuating temperatures. When it does so, it goes over the overall features of the dial, such as the hands and indexes, magnifies them as if under a magnifying glass, and distorts them in a completely different way – a whole new level of Cyclops date! These functions are magnified by constantly moving and changing dials, offering a completely unique concept that can be worn and enjoyed on the wrist. Now U-Boat uses Doppiotempo Capsoil watches. It combines an innovative oil-filled dial with a secondary primary function.
U-Boat’s new dual time zone oil bubble watch comes in two versions. AISI 316L stainless steel with a brushed surface, the black DLC-treated stainless steel case is more stylish and youthful. Both feature 100-meter water resistance, and both offer a domed sapphire crystal front that creates a canopy on top of the dial to accommodate the extra space needed for air bubbles. When the watch is filled with oil and the liquid touches the glass surface, its sheer black finish creates the impression of a bare watch. As mentioned, the bubbles above the beige hands and hour markers have also been treated with a thick Super-LumiNova luminous coating for greater legibility.
The case of the Capsoil Doppiotempo is also equipped with two crowns – one for setting the time and the other for adjusting the dual time function. The latter rotates the inner bezel for a second time zone function. The red-coated double hour hands on the absolutely black dial inject beautiful vibrancy and energy into these two new models. It sits on top of two superimposed dial layers and points to the 12-hour scale around the bezel. The watch also retains the recognizable retro lines of the Capsoil family. The display has no date function, and the hour track is a mix of Arabic numerals and stick markers.
As mentioned, the Swiss electromechanical movement at the center of these two models is lubricated in an oil bath. It is also personalised to U-Boat specifications and works between 0°/+60° when not worn. Its performance is hidden behind a steel or DLC-coated steel caseback with U-Boat engraving on its surface. It is also equipped with an innovative locking system (locking ring system) for quick battery replacement. The new U-Boat Capsoil Doppiotempo watch is perfect for travel or weekends with something smarter. Comes with a black ultra-resistant vulcanized rubber strap with an embossed U-Boat logo on the surface and a steel tongue buckle for a secure fit. cheap watches for sale
