Hands-On – Anonimo Nautilo Bianco, the Dive Watch Dressed in White for Winter

Anonimo probably won’t be the biggest watch brand we know, however at any rate we can say is that they’ve had a significant gainful year: a complete facelift of the Nautilo , some new cruising releases, some brilliant renditions of their dive watch , some new “bronze” watches lastly, new versions of the mark military chronographs . Why such a bounty of curiosities? Just in light of the fact that the brand is commending its 20th commemoration. Also, in light of the fact that the year isn’t completed at this point, here are some new pieces, the “dressed in white” Anonimo Nautilo Bianco.

While the majority of the dive watches are introduced in dim tones, for the most part dark and here and there blue (just to make a connection with the dark blue sea), we once in a while see the utilization of tones in such apparatus watches, and even less so with light dials. Silver or white dive watches are not the most common thing in brands’ lists, yet there’s something that could be fascinating in them. This is the thing that Anonimo had as a main priority, as they are dispatching, as a feature of their 20th-commemoration assortment, some white adaptations of the notable Nautilo, their tough diver.

The late history of the brand puts an unmistakable spotlight on military and dive watches, with two fundamental assortments. First is the Militare, fundamentally a scope of vintage-motivated and military-based chronographs with a mark crown/carry gadget put at 12. The subsequent assortment is the Nautilo, which, as demonstrated by its name, alludes to the marine world. This watch, which has been important for the assortment throughout the previous twenty years, has been marginally updated in mid 2017, to offer a superior quality and a more current allure. However the nuts and bolts are still present.

The Anonimo Nautilo Bianco we have today is, similar to the wide range of various watches in the assortment, in view of the conventional pad formed case which estimates 44.4mm in measurement. Positively not little on paper, it remains effectively wearable once on the wrist, with a combination of manly touch and comfort. Another unmistakable element is the crown situated at 4, in prolongation of a long insurance gadget put on the caseband. The Anonimo Nautilo is all around developed, with exact changes and a sensation of strength when worn. It is evaluated to 200m, so sporting plunging meetings won’t be a problem.

In request to ensure the water opposition, the caseback and the crown are in a bad way. The choice here was to have a plain steel back and no sapphire transparent back, to complete the apparatus motivation. Inside the case is a programmed Sellita SW-200, an ETA-clone type, created in Switzerland and offering dependability and fair accuracy. It shows here the time and the date. Talking date, the 6 o’clock position isn’t excessively upsetting and feels adjusted on the dial. Once more, the subject of having a date or not on such watches remains personal…

For this year’s end season, we have some new watches, with the Anomino Nautilo Bianco. The primary thought, as you’ve likely speculated by the name, is to bring some white dials. Two renditions of this watch will be accessible, anyway both offer a similar dial. We have here a white opaline plate with dim metallic lists, obviously loaded up with glowing paint and with the typical 12-4-8 three-sided game plan. Same goes for the hands. While a large portion of the divers element dark or dull dials, these Nautilo Bianco bring something new and charming to the eye. Furthermore, to the individuals who figure a diver ought to be dark for decipherability reasons, I’d say that it’s not a matter of shading yet rather of contrast… and here, I don’t see any motivations to complain about the difference between the white dial and the hands/files, and readability is extraordinary on the whole light conditions (during the day or around evening time time)

The fundamental distinction between these two watches is for the situation and the bezel. The first plays on monochromatic shades of dim, with a non-covered steel case, a dark calfskin tie and a dim clay bezel that has been roundabout brushed. The subsequent form offers a smidgen more differentiation, with the focal holder in dark DLC covered steel (the crown, the insurance gadget and the drags aren’t coated), a dark calfskin lash lastly a dark earthenware bezel, which is here polished.

The Anonimo Nautilo Bianco watches are presently accessible ( directly from the brand’s webshop ) and estimated at CHF 2,150/USD 2,290 (dim bezel) and CHF 2,190/USD 2,350 (dark bezel). More subtleties on www.anonimo.com .
