    Question Why don't we make this the Anonimo forum for all Anonimo watches?

    I think it's time to ask the question. Why not?

    Also, last I left off before Ernie left people were welcome to post their Swiss Anonimo's as well. People occasionally do post a Swiss version now and then without too much haste. So, the the either/or argument is mostly out the window.

    Despite a lot of rightful criticism, Anonimo S.A. is doing okay. At least it looks like they might finally be getting it together.

    Firenze prices seem to have bottomed out. It's not as if they are the future no matter how angry one can get about the initial service debacle when Anonimo SA took over. I mean it pissed me off too, but I like the recent change in attitude and channel created for repairs at CROEM. And being totally honest I am starting to like the newer models.

    Why not move on from the butt-hurt and make it the "Anonimo Forum - Swiss & Historic Firenze"? I mean damn, why wait around the party for the girl when she's already in bed with your Buddy? Maybe it's time to get over it huh?

    I'd like to hear some friendly viewpoints and discussion if you don't mind sharing.

    Thanks!

    It would be great to say that there was enough activity in both catalogues, but this isn't the case. Let's embrace the future of the brand and tear down that wall.

    I also agree..Why not.....it's better to discuss things we (dis)like about the brand then no talking at all..

    Well, I guess the more the merrier is the notion.

    Good point, are there enough of both to keep on trucking? I think so but who really knows. I've been seeing a lot more owners of Swiss Anonimo's lately.

    Thanks for the healthy dialogue. Let's see if any others chime in...

    Just the fact that the new incarnation understands that the "Brand" is now hitting 20yo is an example that we are now back to somewhat normal and all part of the one....Lets move on, embrace, critique and continue to grow "our" brand.

    Totally agree. And despite a lot of fair arguments I think we are hopefully past most that.

    I actually LOVE the new camo Militare, and I know of a few other watch dorks that have Swiss Anonimo's who don't bother posting here. I think it's time they can and should feel welcome.

    Bottom line is that if Anonimo S.A. wins, Firenze wins.

    I love them all and think it's basically a non issue. I'm all for moving forward with this.

    i too would agree.. its all Anonimo regardless of being made in Italy with Swiss mvmt or made in Switzerland with Swiss mvmt.

    bottom line... its a unique brand with a cool story to how it all began and what it meant to the founders.

    the brand is not huge as a whole so why not put it all together and perhaps help it grow?

    So it seems that most everyone agrees. Do the mods need to do anything to make that happen?

    The title has been changed! Let the floodgates of new owners open lol! It's a slow forum for sure even with the new title, but this is the right thing to do especially to get a barometer of current things Anonimo.
