    Patina case update on my Anonimo Bronze Nautilo

    Thought I'd share how my Anonimo Dino Zei Nautilo Bronze case has patinaed since I got it.

    If you remember, the previous owner polished it before passing it to me;





    Now here it is. First shot is edited in LightRoom, the rest just stock

    Looks good, love the patina that the bronze watches develop. My Polluce Magnum has been really slow to develop any patina.

    Re: Patina case update on my Anonimo Bronze Nautilo

    I have a bronze Polluce, so at least I know what patina is--but honestly, the polished Dino Zei looks great, whereas the patina version falls short of the mark, I think--some designs (such as the polluce) that are by themselves a bit 'old fashioned', and look like a piece of diving equipment from the 30s, do look fitting with patina, but I think the modern design of your Dino suggests/requires a more elegant, polished look.
    Less is More...

    I think this is a case of to each their own? I much prefer the patina case to my polished one. It was too loud and "goldish" when it was polished for my liking, and now is a lot more understated the way I like it. :)

    Re: Patina case update on my Anonimo Bronze Nautilo

    Of course it is a case of "to each his own"--that is what makes this forum special--you ask for opinions, and you are likely to get a full range of useful, thoughtful, constructive and sometimes contrary responses--all a part of what makes this forum interesting reading, instead of just a cheerleading section. It is, without a doubt, a great watch, with or without the "patina." Enjoy it.

    Re: Patina case update on my Anonimo Bronze Nautilo

    Definitely always appreciate the discussions :) Not taking it in a wrong way at all. Would definitely agree with you that the Polluce/Marlin suits a patina-ed case more than a polished one. The Nautilo agreed doesn't look bad polished, nor bad patinaed so a great combi there.
