    U Boat is not a high end brand usually associated with faking - like Rolex, Omega, Panerai, Cartier, Breitling etc so no real time, effort, money & risk would be spent faking it because it wont bring in such potential high rewards from those fooled. To a faker, its worth spending a couple hundred $$'s faking a really good quality copy of a Rolex if the returns at sale are in the few $000's. But U Boat's dont generally command high prices so a good copy just isnt worth tooling up for - making n faking. Thus, any forgery if someone has bothered to do it probably looks very cheap & ugly!

    Well they are more of a fashion watch, so appearance is more important than function. And you need an enormous wrist.

    One more thing I was in New York City and notice that BloomingDales where selling U-Boats, but the funny thing is. The ones they were selling weren't numbered. Aren't all U-boats number, because they say that only 1000 are made of each model. DOES ANYBOBY KNOW WHY.....
