    Confused Anonimo San Marco - Confused

    Could I avail on some of you Nino enthusiasts that know about these things.

    I have seen a San Marco for sale, I have seen that its a first edition, a # out of 29. All the information I've read talks about 250 produced.

    Does Anonimo do the similar production run per year like Panerai? Thanks for your help.

    Yes, Anonimo makes their watches in limited production. There are at least 2 different versions of the San Marco out there. Also, Anonimo may only make 100 of the 250 they have on the watch, meaning they never actually finished the production run, but they can start it back up again to finish the run of watches. I used to have a San Marco, but I forget which number I had.
    Cheers,

    Thanks, but I'm still a little at a loss why this particular watch is limited to 29 and others are limited to 250.

    I've seen the same with the Nautilo Bronze, with identical number runs. I was wondering the same thing...

    I believe the low number of 29 for a run is consistent with their prototype run, where the actual production number, such as 012, is prefaced by a "P", as in P012/29. Sometimes this number is prefaced by something like "03-" to indicate that it was made in 2003 (or whatever year it was made in), so you may see some numbers as "03-P012/29" where the same watch (or similar) will later come out with a straight production number of something like "059/250."

    Thanks, that clears up a lot.

    Do these prototype models have a difference in value or quality from the normal production models or are they regarded equally. Reason I ask is, there are 2 versions of the same watch I am looking at, one being part of the 29 prototypes the other normal 250 production, they are the same price/condition ie new, what should I go for, or doesn't it really matter.

    There is little to no difference in the price or value if the watch is a prototype.

    Re: Anonimo San Marco - Confused

    This is a copy of the PM I sent the OP:
    They often have cosmetic differences, so you have to look closely at the respective dials. Of course the prototypes are rarer, so to some people, they are more valuable. If the prototype has any kind of structural difference, such as a different crown configuration, they will be impossible to repair, as there will be no parts available. Usually however, they only differ on dial cosmetics, and in the case where both are new, both the same price, I personally would go for the regular run. If the cosmetics were unique (and appealing) on the prototype, then I would choose the prototype. Either way, you can't go wrong with a Marlin, however. Peter
