    Re: Hex key size for San Marco and Marlin?

    SO im sittin here reading thru this thread and I am beside myself that somehow Anonimo thinks this is ok.....Give me a freakin break....I own a fair share of the brands pieces and am considering the SM, but I would tell Anonimo to go hit the bricks if I had to go thru all this trouble to change a simple strap on my watch.....How they heck do they have nerve not to include the tool and to charge you for them instead?? WTH Anonimo, you charge enough for your watches to include a couple buck tool (s)....This is the kind of stuff that makes me leary of owning their pieces or buying more....even if i do love them....RANT OVER

    Totally agree but with timepieces with hex screws since 2011 they come with it... the tools.

    Now should be a nice touch from ANonimo if they can provide them for who owns a San Marco, Marlin and Polluce Magnum... BUT i dont think so that they are going to do this or any other Brand to a second owner... just my opinion.

    While I respect your opinion 98% of the watches out there do not come with a tool to change a strap or bracelet. I'd consider a spring bar tool more specialized than a hex key, torx or a flat blade since I can't go into most stores and buy one, yet this is the most common means of mounting a strap or bracelet.

    My guess is Anonimo expects you to go to your AD for this service. That more of the owners here are not getting their watches from AD is not the intended plan. Most AD will happily change the strap for you if you bought the watch there. High end brands expect you to go to their AD just like Ferrari and Porsche expect service to be done at their dealers and not Pep Boys. The dealers will have the specialized tools that only they can get. If I had to buy all the specialized tools to work on my Porsche I could probably buy the car three times over.

    Gotta say that most every higher end watch i have bought as of late that has something apart from a normal flat screwdriver has included the tool, crap even watches that take a normal screwdriver have included it like Ball, Doxa etc//// JUst seems like another shortcut by a brand that seems to do that often....I feel Im allowed to say that as I own like 4 or 5 of em...I have a pretty good idea of how Anonimo shortcuts things sometimes, whether random leftover parts on watches, Different case backs on similar models, mismatching WR ratings from front dials to back cases markings etc...Weve all seen it.

    Just to point out if you did by an Anonimo as of late (2010-2011 models) it would have the tools. The Ebay watches are virtually all pre-re-org and did not have one. My 2010 Magnum did.

    Doxa is kind of a funny example. The screwdriver is only for sizing the bracelet. You need two larger ones to remove the bracelet from most models. So they are really not meeting your needs either.

    I think is not a problem if the customer request to the seller of brand new Anonimo Timepieces the tools.

    Can someone help me out with a set of these? I'm searching high-n-low with no luck. Need them for my Militare Crono.

    One of the reasons Nimos are selling for dimes on the dollar these days, if they sell at all (the one that I kept is the rarest of all, and actually uses regular spring bars). Back in the day when I owned several, I found a micro hex/torx tool kit that had enough choices to find one that fit--if I recall, maybe the .9 hex--reread earlier posts in this thread, around page 4 or 5. I bought two kits on the bay (you need one for each side) for about $20 each from China--below is a picture of something similar.
