Italo Fontana, creator of U-BOAT, has introduced the Chimera Net developed along the lines of the iconic Chimera B&B timepiece, the case features bezel and case band constructed of blackened steel, whereas the short lugs and case back are formed of naturally aged bronze.
U-Boat’s Italian-designed oversized luxury timepieces for men are distinguished by their large crown wheel on the left-hand side of the watch. No matter what the collection, the rugged and masculine characteristics of the watch remain uniform and the look is distinctly retro.
The dial of the Chimera Net consists of three superimposed discs with the last layer made of a laser cut fine wire mesh in stainless steel which allows the movement to be half-seen.
Under the optic thick and flat sapphire glass on the back of the case, ready to be admired is the U-77 Valjoux Top Soignè automatic mechanical movement, modified and personalized to U-BOAT specifications.
The back of the case boasts a personalized 925 sterling silver rotor with subsequent coating of PVD opaque black with blue screws. The watch is available in a limited edition of 300 pieces.
