Big watch is the trend and big military watch is loved by most fans because their brand legendary stories behind. Both Panerai and U-Boat are famous military watch brands that were specially supplied for the Italian Navy. One common feature between the two brands is their big and strong case. They also have left-handed watches, which are also called “destro” in Italian. For example, this U-Boat U-51 Chimera replica is a left-handed watch, it inherits all necessary features that make it become a robust military watch, such as big solid case, strong dial lume, high readability and excellent water resistance. There are few top quality replica U-Boat watches in our market, but this one is the best of the few.
The replica has a big case that is measured to be 46mm in diameter, which does not include the crown. The case is also very thick, almost 17mm. Crown and two pushers are positioned on the left side of the case, the crown has a big protecting cap, when you want to adjust hands or date, you need to open the cap first. I only see such crown design on U-Boat. This gives the crown a full protection and guarantees a better water resistance. When press the button at 8, chronograph will be started or stopped, when you push the button at 10, the chronograph will be reset.
White hour markers on black dial are clearly readable, there are luminous material applied on markers and hands, but on this replica, the lume light on the hour markers is green, while the lume light emiting from hands is blue. There are three subdials, the subdial with small green hand at 3 o’clock is displaying seconds, the subdial with white scales at 6 o’clock is 30-minute chronograph counter, on top, the small dial at 12 o’clock is for hour chronograph. Date window, which is positioned at 9 o’clock, features white font in black background. Overall, reading from the dial, you will know this replica has a fully functional chronograph.
See-through crystal back shows the engine, which is an Asian Valjoux 7750 chronograph, means the factory used a Chinese chronograph as a basic movement and made some decoration. You can see the skeletonized auto rotor and beautiful Geneva Stripes polishing on movement plates, these modification was done by skilled watch master. At last, let me show you the specification of the replica watch.
