11.07.2016

Completely handcrafted in Italy, like all U-BOAT creations, Chimera 43 B&B Mother of Pearl is a perfect example of the creativity of Italo Fontana. This version of Chimera is an astonishing new Steampunk design and seems straight from the world of a Jules Verne or HG Wells novels.

The 43 mm case is in naturally aged bronze and crafted in AISI 316 plus stainless steel with subsequent PVD coating treatment. Under the optical sapphire glass on the face, the dial consists of three superimposed layers, one in pure mother of pearl with varnished metal parts. The bezel, case and case-back are locked together by external tubing that ensures water resistance to 100 meters. Additionally, the patented sculpted pusher enables the wearer to eject the inner crown from its recessed position for setting of time and date.

The watch offers date, hours, minutes, seconds as well as a laser cut 24 hour indicator. To finish an entirely handmade strap in naturally aged leather with finishes made with waxed cotton and Stainless steel buckle with PVD coating.
