Limited Edition of 88 Units
A story of inspiration and style is the driving force behind every U-Boat watch, with roots dating back to 1942. Today headed by Italo Fontana in the small town of Lucca in Italy, Fontana thanks to his wonderful design skills has taken the U-Boat brand to great heights of popularity whilst still remaining a rare sought-after product in the luxury watch market.
Chimera in medicine is the term of a person composed from two genetically distinct types of cells, this is an interesting name from another inspiring design by Italo when you consider the materials used in titanium and the modern finish of black PVD treated 316L stainless steel. This particular watch boats a 46mm case, featuring Titanium pieces with the iconic configuration of the crown fitted to the left-hand side of the case, with U-Boats patented device for protecting the crown is also self winding. The Chimera also has a black PVD bezel that is locked in place with the back of the case via external tubes. The case houses a Swiss made fully automatic 25 jewel chronograph movement, personalised to accommodate the crown stem at 9 o’clock, with a laser cut rotor, all visible through the glass case back showcasing the skeleton balance wheel. The movement runs at frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz, with a power reserve of 48 hours. The case displays a sophisticated black skeleton dial with 4 sub-dials giving you a peek into the full working movement. The chronograph system is operated by 2 push buttons with three sub-dials displaying the seconds, minutes and hours and a forth with a red 24 hour indicator hand all visible through a sapphire crystal. The watch head is fitted to a handmade and hand finished black leather strap which makes each watch one of a kind. This watch would be a unique yet dashing piece to anybody's collection.
