    Great service from Anonimo - 1 year review of my Dino Zei Argonauta

    Well, it finally happened. I had to send my beloved watch in last month for a little R&R at Stoll and Co. and ordered a touch up on the case. For those of you that do not know, Stoll is the official US location for repairs and general service. I am pleased to announce that my watch was sent out on 1/24/11 and returned today on 2/24/11 (30 days!). I pulled it out of the box and any small scuffs were removed and they even cleaned up the original strap for me. I routinely wore this watch for a while. Stoll & Co. did great work and my watch looks brand new! I really appreciate the effort cleaning the strap, they did not have to do that...

    Out of the box I began bonding with it again, and found that I really missed this watch. The colors, the cool world time disc, various polished and satinated surfaces and of course the cool case back make for one great watch. It's really useful to be able to tell the time anywhere in the world without a whole lot of other things on the dial (moon phase, etc.). Most importantly, the extremely limited quantities and rarity of this watch is something I love.

    I got to wearing it again, and was grateful to have one of my true "grails" back in the rotation. I couldn't help but take some 1 year anniversary snaps! Thanks for looking Anonomistas!

    Amers, Nelson & Stephen:

    Thank you all for the awesome comments. I only had one real ding on the watch (near 10) on the bezel and they nearly got it all out - FREE!!!

    I was able to detect a light polish on the watch as well. I want to stress this though, the strap is significantly better than when I sent it. They either carefully cleaned it and possibly conditioned the leather. The Kodiak straps on the Dino Zei are bar none the best for these watches!

    I'm very lucky to have been able to afford this watch and purchase it from an AD for the warranty. It certainly set me back a bit on the moola. I also feel VERY fortunate to be one of the very few with a black dial, stainless Argonauta!

    To folks out there drawn to Anomimo, I can tell you do not hesitate. Especially if you are in the US I can tell you this brand has excellent quality & great service. I've owned a whole TON of very nice and expensive upscale watches and can say without a doubt my ownership experience has been great.

    To me, Anonimo is the best way to experience an independent boutique watch with genuine Italian heritage & quality for the money.

    Is the grain of the brushed finish identical to when the watch was new?

    Yep. They had to do some polishing on polished areas though to get rid of some hairlines.

    bronze Polluce 10th Anniversary

    I'm thinking of sending my watch to Stoll to polish the bronze back to new looking. I just got the watch preowned about a month ago. Glad to hear about your good experience. How did you ship them the watch?
