The focal piece of a traditional watch is the front that holds the hands for marking time and normally placed against a solid background. Today Italo Fontana, creator of U-BOAT, stripped off this from the Chimera 46, leaving the inner workings of the watch on display. The distinctive and iconic case of the Chimera in AISI 316 plus blackened stainless steel, featuring bezel, body and caseback held together with screwed pins, today boasts a new “industrial” appeal. A highly decorated automatic movement is visible through the transparent front as well as the caseback like in the previous models.
