Mens Watch: U-51 Golden Arrow

3:47 PM Contributed by JW


Personifying Italian chic, the U-51 Golden Arrow took the crowds at Baselworld by storm. A true statement piece, the Golden Arrow plays on the striking contrast between solid black and the bold luxury of gold.

The sandwich dial is comprised of a black enamel layer with cut out numerals to reveal the solid 18k gold disk shining out from beneath. This is accompanied by the bolts and crown protector which altogether add up to an impressive 36.6g of gold.


With both the striking richness of the gold and the sheer size of the watch, in both diameter and thickness, the Golden Arrow is a supremely confident watch that embodies U-BOAT’s Italian style.
