    Anonimo Bracelet Project

    Hey guys,

    Some of you may remember an earlier project I did using a Seiko oyster band.



    It was cool and all but I felt it was a bit thin and cheap feeling.

    So I started searching online for alternatives and I zeroed in on Android (22mm, good design, CHEAP).

    This has a Panerai-ish design but everyone's using this design and it seemed a great fit for Anonimo.

    Main thing is getting the end links to fit.



    Good thing is the hole is big enough. Bad thing is it's SOLID so a LOT of grinding was required. Look at the difference:



    Since I only have a 5in grinder, the curvature is shallower. So there's a gap. Major thing with the fit is addressed so the only thing left is slight detailing which I'll do once I get a 3inch bench grinder.



    Overall I'm definitely pleased since this band fits the design MUCH better.







    Watch feels 1000x more solid with this thing. Reminiscent of the classic nimo bracelet.

    It's not perfect but I'll keep working the details to get the end link fit as close as I can.

    Will post updates.

    Thanks for reading!

    Another bonus of me doing the fitting is that the lug bars go straight thru unlike with my old anonimo where it was a wrestling match to get the bracelet aligned so the lug bars will go out the other end. I actually broke or bent 2 bars that way.

    Thanks! It's actually 22mm all the way. Probably an optical thing.

    Here's another pic from the side.



    Pretty happy with how it turned out tho. I've seen other watches with worse gaps than this.
