Anonimo was made in 1997 by devotees quick to keep up the Florence watchmaking custom – explicitly comparable to the combat jumpers of the Marina Militare. Introduced the next year, the Millemetri (designed to military standards, water impervious to 1,000m and fitted with a programmed movement) was the diagram for watches to come.

Today, Anonimo is settled in Switzerland, combining Italian lively stylish and Swiss accuracy. It presently has two product offerings, the Nautilo and Militare. The Militare assortment was made in 2001: the particular situating of its crown at 12 o’clock of this tough apparatus watch was motivated by military pocket watches.

The particular pad shape steel instance of the Militare Chrono Vintage stands out with its crown situated at 12 o’clock and ensured by portable pivots. The round cleaned bezel includes a coin edge profile and it is fitted with rectangular chronograph pushers with non-slip grasp.
