    Basel 2011 - Marlin Bronze - Modello 7001

    Marlin Bronze - model. 7001

    Looking for a very special collector’s item? Anonimo has golden advice for you. Or, rather, “bronze” advice, as the Italian brand of watches is offering a model out of the ordinary: the Marlin Bronze, a diving watch, 1500 meters waterproof (150 atmosphere pressure resistant) in a bronze case which will be sold in limited series of 300 numbered watches ! (per dial color)

    With the Marlin, Anonimo launches once again a limited edition model that will delight those who appreciate a hand made mechanical watch. True to the tradition of the Florentine watchmakers, Anonimo pays great attention to the details. The robust bronze case is the most striking aesthetic element of this watch, combining design, know-how and great comfort.

    The central case and the back cover are made of one piece. The material used to manufacture them is also an unusual one, as Anonimo, in fact, did not use ordinary bronze, but marine bronze. This copper, iron, aluminium and nickel alloy, also known as aluminum bronze, is usually found in the nautical sector (e.g. ship propellers) and in the Navy (e.g. torpedo elements).
    Resistant both to corrosion and oxidation, the watch can be used in the most extreme conditions. Besides its functional side, the naval bronze used by Anonimo will also give the Marlin a unique look. Over time, due to the personal usage to which it is exposed, the watch will gain a darker and warmer color, it will “age”.
    To emphasize the warm and elegant character of this model, the new dial colors for 2011 are a rich brown and deep green.

    This watch has an elegance which catches the attention even in the most formal situations. At the same time, Anonimo remains true to its military origins and its dynamic character.

    Each watch is numbered on the back of the case, which is also engraved with the image of a marlin, the legendary swordfish that gave the name to this diving watch. The calfskin wrist strap, especially processed by our patented Kodiak treatment to resist seawater, gives a final touch of class and elegance. With this watch, Anonimo, the Florentine brand of luxury watches, honors its legacy while looking resolutely to the future. Despite its youth, Anonimo carries with it the rich history of Florentine watch making and the long tradition of handmade watch cases. Founded in 1997, Anonimo is in the same time a jewel of the Italian luxury goods industry and a workshop specialized since 1939 in manufacturing handcrafted cases for watches intended mainly for the Italian Navy. Each year Anonimo issues only a limited number of watches.


    About Anonimo

    Firenze Orologi distributes the watch brand Anonimo. This is the Italian fine watchmaking company that was founded in 1997 in Florence (Italy) by Federico Massacesi, former executive at the fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo.
    Although the company is still relatively young, it can boast years of experience in manufacturing hand-made top-quality watches.
    Handcrafted watchcases are produced in an artisinal way in ateliers existing in Florence since 1939. By means of its luxurious mechanical timepieces, Anonimo continues the Florentine tradition of watch-making. Anonimo, which means ´anonymous´ in Italian, refers to Massacesi´s philosophy: the product (the watch) is the focus, not an overhyped brand name.
    Each year Anonimo makes a very limited number of mechanical watches, made by hand.
