    Love the look, but alas, too big and too expensive--44mm would have been great, but 46 going on 47, no way...

    I really like the looks of this one and I've been wanting a Bronze Anonimo for a while now.

    How's the lume on this one?

    In general, Anonimo lumes are nothing special--decent for a short while and fades like just about any other non-tritium lume.

    That's what I was afraid of. I really like my Anonimo that I have... but the lume is quite disappointing for 'dive' watch

    I agree. With a watch retailing for over $7K and being associated as a dive watch... it should lume like a torch (as so many other dive watches do). Not to start a debate, but it's just a personal preference.

    Tough crowd!

    From my experience with my (departed) Polluce - the lume was excellent. I will admit - it DOES NOT shine as brightly as on a Luminor or on a new SeaMaster... but that said - it wasn't faint by any stretch either. PLUS - Anonimo frequently utilize multi-color lump for different parts of the chapter-ring and the hands...etc. So the over-all effect is very legible indeed. And it was legible for at least 6-7 hours.

    Again - my opinion only. A few weeks ago I was contemplating the very same Bronze Marlin to buy back into the Anonimo club... it wasn't the lump that put me off - rather the 'lumpy' pricing! But when all's said and done - the quality of the case is so good...

    Not trying to be a tough crowd.... but at this price point I want what I want. I absolutely LOVE this case and the quality therein... but if the lume is only so-so it makes it hard for me to pay Retail price for this watch. If I could get a really good deal on the used market then maybe so. Even w/the so-so lume this watch is high on my 'want' list!!

    My Polluce has decent lume... read legible after about 20 or 30 minutes in the dark. Not even close to what I think it should be. On the contrary, I love my Sinn U2 which often has lume critics... it's not torch bright in the beginning, however it's lume is quite good, and stays that way for many hours even until morning. I also love the case, bracelet, dial, etc on my Polluce and that's why she still gets a lot of wrist time. I'm contemplating getting a relume job done on it in the future to see what that does for it's wrist time (for me)
