U-BOAT - U-51 CHIMERA BRONZE

LIMITED AND NUMBERED EDITION OF 300 PIECES

U-51 CHIMERA BRONZE

Italo Fontana, creative mind behind U-BOAT watches, has always been attracted to design and to particular objects characterized by a strong and timeless identity.

A SIMPLY STUNING WATCH

U-BOAT expresses its Vintage history with the new U-51 CHIMERA BRONZE

Every detail has been studied in order to increase the Vintage look and let the material naturally change and age with time.

U-51 CHIMERA BRONZE

The bronze metal has been treated with carefully selected acids and it has not received any rhodium coating in order to keep the raw material natural.

Following the concept, the hands have been painted first, discoloured and then scratched by hand meticulously to intentionally age them.

They are completed with a range of straps in leather, which are great example of fine Italian craftsmanship.
