    Is there a specific model about which you have specific questions? Or are you just wondering if we think they are attractive or not?

    All the best.

    Well Tony, what others find attractive or no, is not usually the kind of question I ask, I found them attractive and that's what matters to me, others may agree/desagree aesthetics is after all, a personal thing...
    That been said, I'm talking about overall quality, movement, appears to be a complex case so I imagine repairs can be an issue etc ...I'm not too familiar with this particular model and was not aware they are different Marlin Bronze made....
    I refering to the 3 hands here....

    Anonimo Marlin Bronze… quite hard to be more specific than that.

    I lusted for a Marlin for a long while (though I prefer the SS version - cream dial is lovely) until someone pointed out that the hands felt a little too short. Once the thought was in my head, I could not ‘unsee’ it.

    That said, I have thought if a Marlin for a true bargain price showed up I might still opt for one as I love the case size and the simplicity of the watch.

    Nelson has one (or two)
    doesn’t he?!

    Re: Anonimo Marlin Bronze...

    I love the look of the watch, and the movement is not all that complicated, so repairs in general shouldn't be a huge problem for ordinary issues. I bought one, had it for about five minutes, and flipped it. Why? It is huge, at about 46.5, heavy, and unless your arms are closing in on eight inches or better, you will likely not be able to pull it off--mine didn't--with wrists at about 7 1/8, I can wear the slightly smaller 44 mm cases no problem, but just a couple of mm larger made a huge difference in wearability.

    Re: Anonimo Marlin Bronze...

    Marlin was introduced at the later stage in nimo history, when massive size watches were the trend. It's got the Sellita movement. although, i don't have anything against SW movements, I really think Marlin was way way overpriced because of that. Yes, Marlin was produced more recently than, say, polluce, but in the closeout stage there's no reason to get them at the current asking price, even in bronze. The dial is cool, but still...

    Same issue for me, unfortunately Once it was pointed out to me that the hands were a little undersized for the case, I couldn't help but focus on it every time I saw the watch. With the San Marco, which utilises the same case and hands, the issue is not so profound due to the dial layout and therefore doesn't bother me.

    But, with that in mind I too would still consider one as I love the case and feel it wears very well for such a large watch. I'm also a sucker for Bronze...

    Eddia!!! i make this for you !

    Have Bronze and SS versions, very comfortable, nice wrist presence quite small than Pilot 20 but seems same, weight is less on Marlin's.

    Movements on mines are ETA nothing complicated, the case is a monoblock opens up from bezel and on caseback have a movement lock needs special key but with any screw driver wide enough can do the magic is just a couple of turns to release the movement.

    Hope you are doing well my friend !

    if anything let me know.

    Thanks Nelson!!....You the best
    Looks good and indeed, looks like just about the same size as the Type 20 (nice strap BTW), like the bronze slightly better than the SS, yesterday I saw one for sale at Watchrecon for $4,500
    Thanks to all for the feedback!
