    New Owner - Updated with Pics

    Original Post

    Thanks again for the advice in the other post. I have a brand new Limited Edition Glauco on its way. Model 11006. Bronze case, black bezel, white face. Still sorting out the insurance for shipping, but it should be en route tomorrow. I'll post some pics when it gets here.

    Update

    The piece arrived earlier this week and I'm quite pleased with the purchase. Watch #2 out of 49. No issues getting it functioning and so far it is performing fine. Any idea how old this piece might be? How soon should I have it serviced? I'll check it for accuracy in the coming weeks using one of the methods described here on the board. It was an interesting path that lead to the purchase. It began a few weeks ago when I was looking for a Ball watch. I was browsing one of the sponsor's sites when a used San Marco caught my eye. Despite belonging to the site for some time and scrolling passed the Anonimo forum numerous times I was unaware of the what the brand represented. I started browsing the forum and came across Stew77's Glauco review. Despite the restructure of Anonimo I'm glad I stumbled onto the brand. Hopefully the new owners reintroduce some of the historic models. On the wish list is an Argonauta and a Militare Vintage (pale yellow). Some photographs of my new piece:

    47 Jewels. My understanding is the base movement is 30 jewels. Are the extra jewels due to the date module? Hard to see, but the rotor has the Anonimo logo with word "Anonimo" engraved into it. Seriously small letters. Pretty cool

    The patina is pretty consistent. Some darker areas around the lugs. They look like they were caused by fingerprints that didn't get wiped down before it was put back in the case. I doubt I'll address them as I like the current dark look.

    One more question. My strap is stamped "Made in Italy" and "Dino Zei." How would I tell if it is a Kodiak treated strap?

    All Kodiak once I've had - four straps, to be precise- had Kodiak stamp on the backside.

    Good to know. I'll keep it out of the water until I get another strap.

    Watch looks good. Interesting thing I noticed was your caseback is bronze. The caseback on the other bronze Dino Zeis i ve seen have been stainless steel.

    It's just a variation - the bronze caseback. like the drass, ox pro militare crown protectors. some come in matching finish, and some don't. This might not had been an official release. I wonder if the reason was due to the possible allergic reaction or patina that leaves marks on your wrist.

    Not sure if there will be Kodiak straps available in the future. But there is always the option of getting custom straps.
