    Picture It's been a long while....Thanks Rob at Topper for my Beloved low number Professionale!!

    Have not had much time to visit my favorite watch brand and forum in along while I have missed my all time favorite watch since I let my last one go about a year ago now....The Professionale Crono on Bracelet!! Made a call to my good friend Rob at Topper this week, one of the best WUS Sponsors here and this Beauty arrived this moring. I can't seem to take my eyes off her to my surprise, Rob was able to track down number 000/299 made. Few pics of my new TANK that arrived this morning...






















    I feel like I have been out of the watch game so long now that I wanted to ask you guys if you don't mind....Will the first piece made of this Professionale Crono addition 000/299 retain or hold its value better? Not that I will ever let this baby go but just curious of all the knowledge and advice from you guys here on the forum.

    Thanks my friends and have a great weekend!!

    Love it, congrats. Is this the third Pro Crono for you?

    As for value, I wouldn't put anymore value on it for being a lower number, though it is a nice bonus for sure.

    Nice pick-up--as for value retention, other than an interesting footnote, the low production number won't have an impact on the value of your Anonimo--figure the value to be about a third to at most a half of current retail--don't buy a Nimo for investment, buy it to wear!
    Here today, here tomorrow...

    Thanks for the info. That is kind of what I thought but just a bit curious. By far this will be my daily wearer. I love all Nimos but the Professionale Series on a Bracelet has always been on my short Grail list.

    I do believe this my third one Every once in a while, I feel this need to scale down my collection. I scaled back for about a year and this piece I always regretted letting go. This time if I ever scale back and just keep one watch, it will the Professionale Crono It's a Tank of a watch!

    As usual my friend a UNIQUE piece, as for value depends, If I'm on the market looking for one of this kind i would get the lower number available and also a Prototype ( more limited run ) and i don't think so that I'm the only one thinking like that... and if you can afford it just make your self happy... We live only once and sometimes is too short... Enjoy it and wear it in a good health !

    Thumbs Up for Rob... a true gentleman.

    Professionale Crono on bracelet remains unmatched!

    I would agree with Nelson that low number, special pieces like this are generally more desirable and possibly more collectible. Anonimo watches do not hold good value at all, but this new piece of yours has at least a chance at holding a bit more than half the value you likely paid for it. So hold on to it and enjoy - try not to let this one go!

    Don,

    I am still enjoying your first one!!!

    Great to see you back and congrats on number 000!!!

    Because nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational poster about being a winner.

    Agreed.

    After seeing your thread as well as some great pictures from other members I just couldn't resist the urge I've had ever since getting into the Anonimo brand, and now have a Pro Crono waffle dial on bracelet on it's way. Very excited to get my hands on it, and hope it lives up to my expectations (I'm sure it will). This has been my grail for some time, so cannot wait to compare it with the San Marco as my love for that is a lot stronger than I imagined it would be when I purchased it.
