Pre-Baselworld 2017 – Anonimo returns to its foundations to all the more likely rehash itself. To begin the festival of its 20th commemoration this year, the brand reissues the Vintage model of its Militare line: same highlights, same style upgraded with a trace of innovation and that one of a kind Italian je-ne-sais-quoi…
Anonimo was established in 1997 in Florence after the Vendome Luxury Group, presently Richemont, purchased Panerai. As Panerai moved to Switzerland, a portion of its (ex)employees, among whom the military specialist Dino Zei, joined Anonimo to make an assortment of strong watches, propelled by unmistakable Italian plan, with an attention on jump watches. The possibility of Anonimo’s authors, specifically Federico Massacesi, was that the item, with particular practical plan, should consistently come before the actual brand. Therefore, the brand didn’t show up on the dial for quite a while. The decision of the name “Anonimo”, the Italian word for “unknown”, was straightforwardly gotten from this idea. The brand is currently settled in Switzerland on the shore of the Geneva lake, combining Swiss precision with tough Italian game chic.
The vigorous 43.4mm steel case keeps the ground-breaking lines of the assortment and highlights an indented bezel. Like the first Militare, it has its crown settled in the middle of the drags to prevent sudden misusing. Be that as it may, it has been moved at 12 rather than the previous 6 o’clock position.
The clean, eggshell white dial highlights abnormal stamping with the sign of 12/04/08 hours and the sign of the 24h perusing in red little print for 15/18/21/24.
The Anonimo Militare Vintage is controlled by the Sellita SW260-1, a development obvious through the straightforward caseback. A comparable to the ETA2824 type, this solid work horse is a little seconds rendition of the SW200 (with the little seconds counter as a rule at 6 – however here obviously moved at 3, given the situation of the crown at 12).
An Italian earthy colored calf calfskin lash with grayish sewing sets the last touch. It is shut with a steel pin clasp. it will be valued at CHF 2,590. www.anonimo.com .
