If you’re into big, legible watches, the U-Boat Flightdeck won’t disappoint. Featuring a chunky 50-millimeter ceramic case, the watch is bound to get noticed on any wrist. And that’s a good thing, because it’s a chock full of function and flair. The first thing that’ll get your attention is the crown, which is connected by way of a dangling hatch (almost like the seal to a vault)—not to mention it’s positioned on the left side of the case. The next thing that draws the eye are the massive Arabic numerals at the cardinal hours. Numerals 12 and 6 are cut in half due to the overlap of the chronograph subdials. Of course, a watch like this requires a serious engine—so the folks over at U-Boat built it with a Valjoux 7750 movement of 25 jewels and a 44-hour power reserve. Plus, with its 100-meter water resistance rating, this robust timepiece is good to go in a bit of rain or a dip in the pool.
