Anonimo 2007 Japan Limited Edition Millemetri Bronze  3 Comments


Anonimo is a Italian watch brand that is headquartered in Florence Italy. The brand in the past did not feature any model that interest me - until now.
Often compared to another Florentine brand Panerai, that was sold to Richemont, the luxury brand conglomerate some years ago took that brand to stratospheric commercial success. Anonimo has had limited world wide success but has some strong dedicated collectors in Japan and the region here.

In 2007, Anonimo launched this special limited edition watch with Bronze case for its Japan market. With apparent high resilience to seawater exposure, it is expected to perform well with high water resistance. Due to the nature of bronze, the case texture is clearly different from the normal stainless steel cases and has a tendency to oxidise. Above the marker at six o'clock is a simple Florentine coat of arms an emblem reflecting the colorful history and culture of the ancient capital city of Florence.

The watch is fitted with the trusted ETA2824-2-based movement at the frequency of 28800bps with 40-hour power reserve. It also features a manual helium gas valve crown. At 42mm diameter the watch should be considered a big watch but in today's context, it is now the norm for diver's watches.

The watch seen here is owned and worn by my friend, Professor of Economics, Massimiliano Landi of Singapore Management University (photographed at Dickson Watch Suntec City - one of the local authorised dealers of Anonimo).
The images here shows off the nice patina of ageing bronze. This is the only other brand I know of apart from Gerald Genta's Gefica (featured here some months ago) that uses Bronze cases.
Although admittedly I am not a fan of Anonimo I am particularly impressed with this model. Bronze is still yet to be considered a mainstream metal for watch cases but the novelty and characteristic of the metal makes for interesting timepieces. Unfortunately this Japan Limited Edition model has since been sold out but Anonimo is currently retailing other models with bronze cases at Dickson Watch.
