    New to the Anonimo Familia

    Hello all

    Not got it in hand yet but soon be the owner of a new Chronoscopico by end of next week

    Read a lot about the brand and the watches (mainly on here) and was looking for a new daily wearer so thought i would have a try

    My only concern is the size. I havent had chance to try one (or even seen one in the flesh) so its my lookout really if she will be a good fit or not

    I have small wrists and the 42mm diameter is a bit of a gamble

    Anyway, thought i would introduce myself

    Kind regards

    Mark

    Welcome Mark, and good choice for a 1st. don't worry about the 42mm size, thats fairly small compared to todays trands. Larger watches are in. Besides - you want a top end, quality piece to be noticed.

    Welcome again, and have fun.

    welcome to the Anonimo Famiglia Mark. as Jay had mentioned, the size should not be a concern, for you do want to showcase your Anonimo (and be noticed) when wearing it. wear it proudly!

    Hello there

    Thanks for the warm welcome gents

    Looking forward to having her on my wrist in the near future

    Point taken about the 'statement factor' of the larger watch. Trouble is i try to be discreet

    Thanks again

    Welcome to the Famiglia dear Anonimist... the size is not a problem is a 42mm but wears very well on small wrist, also is not too big so believe me you will be very happy with your selection.

    Wear it and enjoy it in the best of health !

    I also agree that Anonimos wear smaller than most 40+ watches. I prefer the watch's smaller wrist dimensions since my wrist isn't on the larger side either.

    Re: New to the Anonimo Familia

    Welcome!!! My first Anonimo was also a Chronoscopio. I find I am moving back to 42mm watches for comfort and ease of wearing. They seem to be just big enough.
    I think you will be very pleased with your new Anonimo!!
