ENNEBI Fondale Vintage CRONO

By TLex Ennebi's first ever chronograph model is currently in the works! The new Fondale Vintage Crono Ref. 9697 will be made in a limited edition of just 6 numbered watches. It will be powered by an automatic El Primero 400 caliber with custom Ennebi winding rotor with a thin sheet of yellow gold with 'Ennebi ' engraved on. It will utilize the same micropeened stainless steel case with its lovely clean lines as the Fondale Vintage Ref. 9692.



Each case will be tested up to 33 atm, the equivalent of 330 meters of water-resistance. The watch's stop watch function will be operable whilst underwater to a depth of 60meters! The bezel is fixed, and as is typical with Ennebi's divers, the 12hr marker will be made using some sort of precious metal - either: yellow gold, white gold, palladium or silver. It is possible to request that a bi-directional rotating bezel be fitted instead.

The dial is made by engraving a mechanical pantograph. The background color of the dial can be chosen from the following: matte back, dark brown, red-brown, olive green or pearl white. The 3 sub-dials can come in either black or gray. The watch comes with 3 straps of standard length (120/75 with Ennebi roller buckle): brown calf leather, green shark leather and black silicone rubber.
