|U-Boat Flightdeck 50mm Watch Review|
The U-Boat Flightdeck CAS 50mm is one of U-boat’s more manageable watch sizes. The case comes in at 50mm and shows off the clean smooth lines of dial very well. The Flightdeck has a nice fit and finish and features a display back. The dial is black carbon fiber, with plenty of lume applied to the hands and numerals. There are three subdials, all powered by a Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement, with an approximate power reserve of 44 hours.
Aesthetically, the watch has a nice balance, with the crown guard on the left side in usual U-Boat fashion. U-Boat is also stamped and bead blasted on the case side, impressive in touch viewed in person. There is a date window at 9 o’clock, correct positioning in regards to the crown location. U-Boats are handcrafted in Italy, this is reflected in the MSRP.
