    The bronze age cometh: Dino Zei Nautilo

    If you hadn't guessed it yet, I've been bitten bad by the Anonimo bug as of late. And what else says Anonimo more than a bronze case? So when I got contacted about this piece, I couldn't help but pounce on it, even though it was slightly above what I know it sold for and it was without box & papers and spare original strap.

    I am so glad that I did though. It's got so many lovely facets to it that I'm still in awe of it. The previous owner polished it a little before passing it to me. Bit of a mixed bag there, part of me wishes the original patina had stayed, yet the other part is glad it got polished so I could watch it "age" myself.

    Anyhow, enough talk, onto the pictures;







    Crystal doesn't have AR again I believe, but as its a flat piece of sapphire, reflections arn't that bad as compared to the Millemetri/Polluce/Professionales.





    19 pieces ??? :)



    Perfect logo positioning



    Uses a bayonet crown, first time I've come across one of these. Took me a short while to get the hang of it. You can see the "L" lip that allows the bayonet to work.



    Next to its Professionale Mod.6003 cousin



    Love the buckle!



    Lumed of course. Love that the power reserve arrow is lumed too. Though the 12 isn't.



    1sec exposure, 2mins lapse



    Finally a wristie on my 6.75" wrist



    It wears like an AP almost, but better to me.

    Definitely one that is going to stay in my collection.

    Re: The bronze age cometh: Dino Zei Nautilo

    Yeah, the case and dial are a stunning combi. I know my AD won't be too pleased since now I won't be getting the bronze Polluce, but I think this piece is far and away more stunning.

    Now what's next? a Notturnale Drass-Gold perhaps? Or a San Marco? :)

    Congratulation you are very lucky... you have one of the 19 pieces of Prototype series of The DIno Zei Nautilio, in other hand you are right about the AR Anonimo don't apply the coating but yours looks very nice almos like no crystal in the angle picture of the dial because of the flat saphire.

    Wear it and enjoy it in the best of health!!!!!!

    Agreed, couldn't wait! Glad I didn't

    Sad thing was, because of this, I gotta pass on the Benarus Moray 2 bronze with brown dial. That would have been killer as well.

    Good luck on your hunt mate

    Congratulations on the Nautilo. It's one of the finest Anonimo designs! The bronze is killer too!

    Between the Notturnale & San Marco, Id say the San Marco!
