    My coolest Anonimos? Cronoscopio Mark II Drass & Professionale GMT waffle dial

    I have almost 10 Anonimos. Love them all, but these two get the most wrist time.

    Understand why?

    I sure do! I am fortunate to own a Cronoscopio mkII Drass as well and it is my favorite. But I also long for that very waffle dial version of the Professionale GMT! I would have to say that these are #1 and #2 in my personal ranking of Anonimos. But then again, there are several great Anonimo models that I'd rank right up there with them.

    Congrats to you on 2 very grail-worthy timepieces!

    Actually, like Nelson, I have no idea why you like those two more than the other 8 (nor can I actually fathom needing to own 10, but that's another line of inquiry). As likes and dislikes are pretty subjective, how about giving us a clue as to why those stand out in your mind as the best? I can think of several others that I would put on the top of my list--so why not go the extra mile and tell us what it is about these watches that you like? I am guessing black dial for you is good, also a relatively large SS case (43+), a black strap with contrasting stitching, relatively limited edition (but really, most Nimos are)...beyond that, what's special about them to you? What sets them apart from the other 8?

    Thanks for the compliments guys! I generally grab these two pieces because they satisfy so much of my daily watch needs and also embody (for me) the best of what Anonimo offers.

    Cronoscopio Mark II Drass: The perfect, military, gun metal finish of the Drass case, with the brushed chrono buttons and crown really do it for me. I consider it a masterpiece of masculine, yet understated timewear - especially in a world of ubiquitous chronographs that are either too loud or too conservative. So this pieces matches almost every kind of clothing, yet still oozes class and unique cool no matter what I have on. Also, the size is just perfect and the richly finished subdials on the matte black (almost dark gray) dial with blue outer dial markings are just right. I consider this piece a top Anonimo icon, with enormous staying power and high collectibility.

    Professiionale GMT Waffle Dial: We all know how amazing the Prof case is. But we seldom hear folks describe how utterly perfect the GMT dial is. Rare waffle dial aside (which is awesome in its just-right luster), the placement of the numbers, text, and classic black hands all combine to give this bigger piece more of a sober style, marked by the very usable GMT hand and 24 hour outer dial. There's alot to this piece that is both statement making, yet functional and "understated". Not too much. Not too little. This is one of the most well balanced "big" watches out there.
