Anonimo Militare Unique Piece
Two years ago, Anonimo celebrated its 20th anniversary and made a name for itself as the first watch brand to offer a watch made of bronze, a trend that has emerged with other brands only in the last few years. As well as being the precursor for this trend, Anonimo can also claim an unparalleled legitimacy for its use, given the brand’s origins in Florence, the home of Italy’s recognised excellence in early diving aids, many of which were produced in bronze.
These two pieces, both from the Militare collection which includes a distinctive large case with oversized double-digit Arabic hour numerals at 12, 4 and 8, as well as a small seconds counter at 3 o’clock and a date at 9. A solitary figure 16 in the small seconds counter and a red 16 in the date window single these pieces out as unique.
The unique Anonimo Militare models are available with a choice of black or blue dial and a matching strap. Both have the distinctive “lightning strike” brushed effect on the dial, a brushed bronze case and the crown at 12 o’clock with Anonimo’s distinctive crown protector. They are powered by the Sellita SW260-1 self-winding mechanical movement, which operates at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers 38 hours of power reserve.
