Italo Fontana Creator of U-BOAT, following the motto “ Freedom in creation," loves to try things out without being influenced by the market or the competition. Therefore he never puts any limit to his creativity even in terms of materials. The new 46 Chimera is crafted in titanium and carbon, two of the toughest materials in the world and extremely lightweight.
The distinctive and iconic case of the Chimera, for this model in titanium grade 5, features a bezel in forged carbon fibre placed in the case mould in a way that makes each watches unique and, from an aesthetic point of view, a marbled effect, satiny and soft to the touch. Each watch is unique because the carbon fibers are distributed in a random manner in the mold. When the material is compressed under heating, it evolves in an unpredictable way.
