    Try not to laugh, but...

    Does anyone out there have, or know where I can get, a crown or crown/stem combo for my First Edition 2010 Opera Meccana Militare?

    Have you considered getting in contact with some of the old A.D.s in the US that also repair watches? It's possible that one of them has some parts that may work. This is one of those situations that everybody that owns an Anonimo has worried about with the demise of the brand. Sorry to hear about your conundrum.

    Sadly, it appears you already know the answer--unfortunately this is one of the main parts that is prone to damage, and what parts there were have for the most part already been used--no harm in looking around, but likely no regular owner will have one or two of these stashed away, and there weren't that many AD/service centers to begin with, especially with a multitude of parts on site. I bought my second Pro primarily just to have parts to keep one running...

    Thanks for the help. I'll get on the phone and see what I can find. If any if the AD's that I contact have any parts left in stock, I will post what and where I found them.

    Someone here once claimed that he (with some modification) was able to successfully utilise the crown from luminor in its place. I cant be sure how true this is but hopefully this person reads this post and can elaborate further. You will end up with a Frankenstein but at least it will work.

    Please email me photos and reference/serial number of the watch. I'll see what I can find out.

    Contact "ABOUT TIME" watch retailer in Dana Point, CA

    They were an Anonimo Authorized Dealer previously and may have spare parts well as able to fabricate/make new parts for you. Very helpful to Anonimists.
