U-Boat uses titanium and carbon in its limited-edition Chimera
replica U-Boat Watches's new Chimera 46 uses extremely strong and lightweight carbon and titanium. The watch’s bezels are made from forged carbon fiber and have a random construction that gives each bezel a unique look and feel.
As U-Boat explains, the carbon fibers are distributed in a random fashion in the mold. When the material is compressed under heat, it evolves in unpredictable ways, so no two watches are alike.
The dial consists of three overlapping discs, with the final layer made of a laser-cut stainless steel fine wire mesh that allows the movement to be translucent.
On one side of the case, the left replica luxury watches crown with its crown guard, and a patented engraved pusher that can be pressed to pop the inner crown from its recessed position to adjust the date and time.

Mother-of-pearl U-Boat shrinks the shell to suit current tastes
Even the mighty U-Boat has to admit that popular flavors point to smaller case sizes.
The Italian watch brand known for its oversized case sizes and canteen-style crown guards appears to be downsizing its watches, if its latest models are anything to go by.
Chimera mother-of-pearl in a bronze and stainless steel case is only 43mm in diameter, especially compared to the U-Boat designed by Italo Fontana in the past.
Chimera also reflects an emerging trend of embellishing the dials of watches with mother-of-pearl, which may be worn by men. Mother-of-pearl has long been a weapon of choice for watch designers for women, but is increasingly used in men's cheap watches for sale, such as the high-tech Seiko Astron. Vulcain explores this concept in its 2015 special edition Vulcain for Heiner Lauterbach watch.
