    Well, both watches share same case but... First difference is the water resistance Millemetri is 100 ATM and Millemetri Polluce 120 ATM. Second, the case looks the same but pay attention to the crown Millemetri is a small crown if you compare with the one on the Millemetri Polluce is bigger and finally the Helium Valve Millemetri have the manual style crown and the Millemetri Polluce have the automatic one.

    Now, Millemetri on dial have the "handcrafted in Firenze" centered on top of the mark of the 100 ATM in the upper 6 and on the Millemetri Polluce have that phrase below 6.

    Hope this help !

    My Bad... I saw Millemetri and Millemetri Polluce.

    Only Polluce is an old collection or denomination and the newest is Millemetri Polluce but case, water resistance and crowns are exactly the same.

    This is how I see it (I am mixing facts with my interpretation of them). Polluce was meant to be a limited edition to commemorate the findings of the wreck of the Polluce steamboat (this story is well documented on the forum just do a search). In fact, the 10th anniversary Polluce comes with the engraving on the case that says "Final Edition." So no more of them. However the Polluce was selling and therefore you cannot stop producing it. So let's make it a Millemetri Polluce ;) There are some aesthetic changes. I would also check the movement. The older Anonimo Polluce should come with the ETA 2824 movement whereas the newest equivalent models have the Sellita reproduction of the same movement. I consider the two virtually equivalent, even though one is the "original" and the other is the legal reproduction of it (since the patent expired).
