ENNEBI 5218-MM (dearly nicknamed titanic)

By TLex:
The 5218-MM is as of yet unreleased. Here is a first look at a prototype of the Titanic more details to follow when I have them.

Ennebi's Alessandro Bettarini was asked by a British watch collector to produce this watch.

At first glance the Titanic is reminiscent of the Egiziano made for the Egyptian Army in
1956, but many technical aspects of the watch differ greatly from the Egiziano.

It shares the massive oversized case and dial that was originally determined by the operational needs of incursori (special forces frogmen) breathing pure oxygen, who wore the watch over a wet suit.

Pictured with 47mm Decima Mas gives you an idea of how big the Titanic is!

A lever located on the left side of the watch is used to lock the bezel. When the lever is out, the bezel can rotate freely in both directions.

Its case is water-resistant to 300m.

It certainly is a stunning and very imposing looking piece and no doubt will be a far more affordable alternative to recently released PAM00341.
