U-BOAT U-42 Chrono Gold

By TLex Introducing the U-BOAT U-42 Chrono Gold with its stunning combination of Black IP treated Titanium and 18k Rose Gold. Solid 18K has been used for the Chrono button, the bezel studs, the bezel release lever and winding mechanism with a total gold weight of around 15.40 grams.


The 12 o'clock bezel pip is black ceramic. The dial is double superimposed black and rose gold. I'm not exactly sure of the watches dimensions as the U-42 Chrono is available in either 47mm or 53mm. Water-resistance is 300m. The U-42 Chrono Gold is an LE of just 99 pieces . . .
