It doesn’t seem all too long ago which U-Boat was just a fledgling brand, giving a uniquely styled yet straightforward case with a basic quartz movement in it. Well today that concept has come of age and U-Boat u-51 chimera bronze replica watch gets the confidence in it to do something particular. The proof? The U-51 Chimera.
Naming a watch brand following a war system from the most notorious global power the world has ever seen is always going to be a touchy subject, but there is more to it than just shock value. Much like Panerai, the original watch (penned by U-Boat u-51 chimera chronograph limited edition replica watches founder Italo Fontana’s grandfather, Ilvo) was developed for the Italian Navy, but where Panerai’s view engaged in active service, Ilvo’s didn’t; the Italians had surrendered prior to the watch saw any actions. This abandoned it to Italo to view his grandfather’s idea through to fact.
A U-Boat watch has always been a divider of remarks. Big, varied and attention grabbing, it participates in subtlety’s face, however things are taking a different twist. Much like Panerai before it, U-Boat worx U-51 chimera imitation watches are moving out from the historically true, yet generally impractical dinner plate-sized instances and therefore are moving into the realms of comfort and sensibility rather than Granted, in 46mm that the Chimera is no shrinking violet, but its dimensions are far more appeasing to a wearer of traditional sized timepieces.
But its not only the dimensions which have changed, oh no–it’s much more than that. Where previous U-Boat campaign U-51 Chimera clone had an indisputable simplicity in their construction, the U-51 is complex, complicated and dare I say it, tasteful. Polished lips fulfill brushed edges, curves blend to angles; the detailing is way beyond the typical U-Boat flightdeck replica measure, and it is impressive to say the least. There are no sharp, unfinished edges , and not a simplistic, CNC-milled shape to be seen.
Then there’s the introduction of small original touches like the vulnerable case bolts–all exquisitely polished–that the asymmetrical sandwich dial, the pill-shaped chronograph reset pusher–there are even exotic materials available like bronze, and soon, forged carbon fibre. It’s the kind of attention to detail that lends trust to a watchmaker, an investment of effort that goes beyond simply casing up a movement and shipping it out. It is the evidence a prospective customer should feel assured that the watch that is caught their attention has been crafted with confidence.
