    Any issues or concerns with buying a P serial number (Prototype) Anonimo watch?

    I'm considering purchasing my first Anonimo watch and I was wondering if there are any issues or concerns to consider when purchasing a watch with a P serial number. (Serial number is
    P_ _ /50) Anything special I need to be aware of? Any issues with getting them serviced? Sorry for the brand newbie question.

    P means Prototype... is like a more limited version vs. the released Limited version of the timepieces.

    No issues at all in my opinion I like to have a P over the regular serial number.

    No issues at all about warranty, one time an Anonimist got his Prototype with no lume he bought it from an AD and Anonimo change his dial to a regular one.

    I have one P series... My San Marco.

    Also you can find more information to understand better :

    I'll start with Caveat emptor... Buyer beware. With that said do your research and at least compare the P version with a regular one so if there are differences then at least you know and can make an informed decision that will make you happy.

    These watches unfortunately lose money in the secondary market and I am not really sure a P version will help or hurt...Depends on the buyer I guess.

    I have an Anonimo Professionale GMT "P" Series. I prefer this series over the limited edition. I think they're scarce and rare, moreso than the limited edition. I'd take the prototype in whatever fashion it was created in and would not change it. When you change a prototype it loses value. Sort of like cleaning off an antique patina. Hope this helps.

    As some have indicate know what you are buying. Get pictures of everything including the lume. Since these can have variance from the production model be aware of the content of the watch. For example one I saw was missing the dial lume. This would drive me crazy so I passed.
