The Ennebi Fondale's history can be traced back to the 1980s. In 1985, Officine Panerai (Pre-Vendome) created a few prototyped professional diver and presented it to the attack divers of the Italian navy for evaluation. Among the 2 prototypes developed, the Fondale as we see here was born. Although the Fondale performed remarkably well, meeting and exceeding every requirement by the Italian Navy, the Fondale was never produced due to insufficient order. Almost 20 years down the road, the two men from original team of Pre-Vendome engineers who engineered the 2 prototypes, Alessandro Bettarini and Luciano Nincheri set up Ennebi and brought the Fondale back to life. The Fondale is powered by a Swiss Made ETA2824-2 automatic movement. The massive 47mm micropeened Titanium Grade 5 case is beadblasted throughout. A domed organic crystal tops it. The micropeened Titanium Grade 5 bezel is bidirectional rotatable with 2.5 minute steps. The bezel employs a special self lockable system. Bezel can be easily removed without altering watch water-tightness. The bezel has a 750 kt gold index. All of these are engineered for 1000meters water resistance. The unique micropeened Titanium Grade 5 caseback is fastened by 6 special screws. And finally, the straps are fixed onto the case with extra thick screw-in lug bars. Over engineered is the only way to describe the Fondale. The Ennebi Fondale comes with not one but two Italian handmade leather strap! And of course the necessary tool is provided as well for those strap changing needs. All boxed in premium Ennebi signed wooden box. All Brand New Ennebi instruments come with a 2 years international Ennebi warranty.
