    Long time reader seeking for help on hunt

    Hi all!

    This is my first post to forum where I've been a member since 2007. I have been trying to find a Anonimo Bronze Polluce with black dial (2003 edition not the 10th Anni) which would be my 30th birthday present and also my first Anonimo (when saying first it's like committing yourself that you will buy more in the future) but with no luck yet. It doesn't help that I live in Finland and there are no dealers for Anonimo here.

    So I thought I could ask for your help on finding a Anonimo Bronze Polluce. If anyone knows where I could get one new (or used) and preferably in EU, I would really appreciate if you could PM me the info.

    I hope I'll post pictures of a Anonimo Bronze Polluce soon instead of posting next time in 2013

    Regards,
    Marko

    I guess first suggestion would be to contact one of the Anonimo AD here on the forum to see if they have one or get the EU AD phone numbers from the Anonimo site. Second is to watch the sales corner here, from time they come up. And last create a want to buy post in the WTB section of the sales corner here at WUS. Generally we move these kinds of post there, but this is a little different, so I'll let it stay as long as it does not become a sales post.

    Thumbs Up Re: Long time reader seeking for help on hunt

    You just missed out on a sale that happened last week, good price as well. As already suggested try an AD in the EU to see if they have any in stock or you can try a US dealer. Another guy posted last week he had luck finding a few of them still in stock. Good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures when you get the watch.
    Cheers,
    Rob

    I was thinking the same thing. You just missed it. But they do come up for sale, so just keep an eye out. Also, like samanator said, post a WTB ad.
    Because nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational poster about being a winner.

    Perhaps try this seller and see if it's still available? https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthr...polluce+bronze

    Nice choice as well, the Bronze w/ black face Polluce is on my list of Anonimo's to own, great looking watch once the patina develops.

    I saw that and noticed that it was marked as traded in TZ sales corner (Jul 10, 2010) and still bumped with price reduction here (Jul 18, 2010) so didn't contact the seller. Maybe the trade in TZ was cancelled.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I'm looking for a different version (model number 2003) than 10th anniversary edition. I don't like the hands and yellow hour indexes on that model.

    You could always get a Polluce Magnum which will get you the new hex screw pins.

    Mine came with the old crappy slot screws.
