    Anonimo Millemetri with Hi-Dive written on the back?

    Just bought a Millemetri. On the back is written "Hi-Dive" Model 2011. Is it a wrong case back? I don't have any pics at the moment, but can post when the watch arrives....

    There were some Millemetris that had the larger Polluce crown and they called them Hi-Dives. I think this was before the Hi-Dive became a specific model and before the Polluce became a specific model.

    Very cool!!!
    Because nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational poster about being a winner.

    Yes, these rare models are the precursors to the Polluces. A small number in Ox Pro with orange, yellow, and black dials were manufactured. The black dial on Ox Pro version is particularly coveted.

    I thought these Millimetris came after the Hi-Dives were designed, not the other way around? I've read somewhere that the Millimetri dial was fit to the existing Hi-Dive cases by Anonimo because the Hi-Dive dial was not as popular - this would explain why the caseback says Hi-Dive with 120atm WR listed, whereas the dial shows 100atm.

    Polluce's came after the Hi-Dive's of course, using the same case design as the Hi-Dives.

    Please correct me if I'm mistaken :)
