    Need advice from the experts

    I am looking to buy my first Anonimo and I want to know what should I get? When I bought my first Panerai everyone siad that your first piece should be a base (000,005,111,112). So what is the "best" first Anonimo that really gives you a feel of what the brand is all about? Thanks in advance guys!

    P.S. If anyone has one for sale PM me!

    Well my friend a good start is a millemetri like a 000 or 005 and a Polluce like a 111 or 112.

    Good Luck !

    Re: Need advice from the experts

    What kind of watch are you looking for? Anonimo has a lot to offer. They have a basic line composed of the sailor diver, millemetri, polluce, ddate, cronoscopio. They also have a militare line, which are distinctively Anonimo with the crown located at the 6 O'clock position. Besides that they have a Professionale line which has full range of watches with gmt, chrono, divers etc...Lastly, there's the Dino Zei line, designed by old Panerai boss Dino Zei.

    They're all excellent timepieces but if you want something distinctively Anonimo, the Zei, militare, Professionale lines are all signature anonimo. Especially their bronze models. Not that their basic line isn't distinctive, it's just that these are the more conservative models and you will definitely get "is that a panerai?" questions more often with these. But, if price is a concern or if you DO want something more conservative, basic is definitely the way to go. And if you can spring for a steel bracelet model, then all the better. Anonimo probably has the best bracelet design out there.

    They're all unique in their own way, and there's a myriad of choices which all show off the unique appeal of Anonimo.

    I've had a few now, and have loved them all. I would like to try a Polluce as I did find the Millemetri a touch on the small side, but at the same time would love to have it back with me! A Militare or Millemetri is a good value way into finding out what the appeal of Anonimo is as they can be had quite cheaply, and as suggested above if you can find a model on a bracelet it elevates them to another level.

    This is a lot harder than the Panerai decision. Most Panerai are basically the same case design (they have added more recently), so choosing one model will give you basically the same look as 20 other models. Check out the Anonimo site and see which ones you like the best and then we can give you a better idea of what would be a good first choice. The "base" would be a Millemetri all the way to a "PAM382" Bronze Marlin.

    agree with willith here. the panerais are pretty much the same "look and feel" across the entire line which is what actually turned me off from the brand. it seems like the creative process was lost, imho.


    the 'nimos are very unique per model/class. here's a summary and some personal notes.

    The Millemetri shows a fairly basic and clean design and is generally the most affordable model. Get the stainless steel bracelet if given the option.
    The Polluces have a very rugged 'look and feel', with very high praises for the bronze models (the corsaro has had mostly negative reception within the community).
    The Militare is very unique (crown at 6). Go with the black with red face, that seems to capture the design the best - imho.
    The Cronoscopio is the "FLEX" line. Sporty, classy, go anywhere in style kind of a watch. Mark II's are more desirable than Mark I's due to the updated crown and pushers and overall design improvements.
    The Professionale (Crono model is a grail for some) just exudes a commanding presence like no other.
    The Dino Zei, is well, the Dino Zei.


    the most important thing, as already suggested, is to browse through as many pictures and websites and learn about each model and make a decision as to what 'appeals' to YOU. as an example, although the Corsaro hasn't quite received the warmest reception, there are at least two WUS members who "gets it" (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f16/ano...-308962-3.html).

    i must warn you now when handling these pieces in person, as they have a tendency to end up on your wrist and the eternal admiration begins and it doesn't seem to quite end.

    best of luck to you in your search.

    Well said.

    All the lines have an appeal of their own, and therefore speak to all of us in different ways. Anonimo along with Panerai are the brands that have more appeal than any other to me as I like the vast majority of their designs. Most other brands I like a few models here and there, but the desire to obtain them is just not as strong. For me a MkII Cronoscopio on bracelet is near on the perfect watch (though I prefer the Pro Crono on bracelet), and I think I'd be very happy if this was my one and only.
