I recently purchased a Cronoscopio on ebay. (I have a post in the Public Forum regarding my "impulse" buy and corresponding angst.)
True to the pic on ebay, the case has a high polish.
Looking at other photos of Cronoscopios online, in most cases the case is sandblasted. (I saw only one other example of a high polish Mod 2005 Cronoscopio photo (plus, it looks like the Mark II Cronoscopio has a "shiny" version).
I suppose there are 3 scenarios:
1 - Yes the Cronoscopio Mod 2005 did come in a polished version, but it is rare or the people who buy them tend to not take photos of them
2 - No, the previous owner had the watch polished, essentially altering the case from sand blasted to shiny
3 - No, and perhaps I'm not wearing an Anonimo at all
Very curious to know people's thoughts.
To be clear, I knew the watch was "shiny" when I bought it and I love the way it looks. But understanding the back story would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
