    Anonimo bracelet options?

    I am probably picking up a Polluce soon and had a question about bracelet options. Now I have seen the stock one but the price is kind of high. So has anyone had their's on any other style of bracelet? Maybe a straight link Oyster or any other suggestions are welcomed. Thanks ahead of time, Terry.

    I'll stop just short of calling you a heretic or a blasphemer, but I would rather have a strap than an off-brand bracelet. That would be like buying a Bentley and then putting Hyundai wheels on it.

    Please no flames. Take my comments in the jovial good nature that they were meant to have.
    Because nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational poster about being a winner.

    I agree Terry, just dont think an aftermarket bracelet would do the watch justice and would roll with leather or rubber...isofrane looks sweet!

    Well, my friend jcoat007 and Cali Kid are totally right but can be nice if you find something can match the soul of the timepiece and the most important if you like that...go ahead and post some pictures.

    I saw this Professionale one time and to me looks very nice not my taste of that type of bracelets but looks cool :

    The Mesh kill me too. why would you want to disgrace a beautiful watch. I would not put on an after market bracelet on ANY watch. The anonimo bracelet is the best bracelet out there. I would just spend the extra cash for the bracelet.

    I understand some of the comments about sticking with a OEM bracelet. But I was asking what is out there since I know some people like to experiment, and sometimes stuff works that you wouldn't think that would. Personal that mesh does look pretty cool but I am not a mesh bracelet guy.

    But thanks for some of the opinions. I will look into the OEM bracelet option, my only concern with that is the lack of micro-adjustment. Oh and the price isn't small by any means. Anyone know if there is a used one for sale any where?

    Re: Anonimo bracelet options?

    I've seen someone put an anvil or watchadoo bracelet on a Polluce or Millemetri, sorry for being so ambigious. Looked good to me. I had toyed with the idea of modifying a Tissot T-Touch Expert bracelet to fit an Anonimo since the design is very similar and the size is about right at 21mm

    Re: Anonimo bracelet options?

    Great info, since I might try it out on a anvil later since I have one laying around. But if I find a OEM one before then it might just be heading my way. Thanks again for everyones input.

    Re: Anonimo bracelet options?

    Though the Anonimo bracelet is nice, it certainly is not the "best there is," (it has no micro adjustments, for one thing, it is rather difficult to attach to the watch, and many have claimed that it is a hair pincher, but I don't have enough hair to tell!), on the one hand, and, since it only comes in one style, seems rather common after awhile--i.e. it doesn't distinguish your 'nimo from anyboy else's. Other great bracelets in the watch world in general are the Omega mesh, similar to the Staib(?) above, as well as the IWC rice bead, the Oris TT1, some of the push-button Ball bracelets, and so forth, some more expensive, some quite a bit less. Don't see the Anonimo bracelet as anything sacred at all. I have one, and actually can't find a home for it among the four 'nimos I have that it will fit, though I am giving it a run on my Sailor Diver after Nelson's great shots. One of the pleasures of owning watches, in my opinion, is being able to personalize them in ways that fit your own personality, and about the only way that you can do that is by trying various straps and bracelets. Currently I have only one Kodiak (on my Militare, but even it was a special order) and beside the bracelet for the moment on the Sailor, I also have a Toshi, a 1907 ammo strap and a baseball glove leather strap, and am always searching for something new and different. Not all of us can afford $800 for a bracelet, so it is reasonable to want to find something nice for a whole lot less. Watchadoo makes some good choices, as well as a few other companies--don't close the door to alternatives to Anonimo--you might be pleasantly surprised by the options available to you if you just look around.
