Replica U-BOAT introduced a new version of Chimera Skeleton watch in grade 5 titanium watch, by taking a cue from the great success of the Baselworld 2015 novelty, the Chimera 46 Skeleton replica watch. Chimera Skeleton Titanium is a perfect example of the creativity of Italo Fontana, creator of U-Boat, in one of the strongest materials and extremely lightweight.
The watch, features a totally skeletonized movement visible from the sapphire crystal and caseback. The special “Squelette” U-77 Valjoux Top Soigne automatic movement by AROLA is modified and highly decorated. The bezel, case and caseback are locked together by external tubing that ensures water resistance to 100 meters. In addition to this, the patented sculpted pusher enables the wearer to remove the inner crown from its recessed position for setting of time.
The 46mm(dia) case is made of grade 5 titanium. It also has personalized rotor in sterling silver consisting of three bridges locked through 3 blue screws. Oversized crown cover for an easy manipulation, secured on the case, positioned at 9 o’clock. Chrono pusher with milling on the external surface. A side window offers the display of the balance wheel movement. The replica watch offers chronograph functions, hours, minutes and seconds. In this model Italo also added an additional fourth counter showing the 24 hours of the day and marked by a little red hand.
