    Why Anonimo does not produce anything with carbon fiber dial?

    I think it would make a great addition to Chronoscopio or Millemetri line if not entirely new model. I am a big fan of industrial design (that's why I collect Nimos) and carbon fiber is a material of choice in most current design fields/ performance products. Any thoughts? Dan

    I personally don't mind CF on chronographs because at least there's a link to timing, racing and whatnot. But, I don't find it to be a great mix for diving watches.

    I think the new Carbon Diver is the best argument against Anonimo making any other carbon watches...
    tevj and revangel like this.

    Why doesn't Anonimo produce this exact dial in a non-carbon format?

    They do (nearly)--the Sailor Diver--the main difference is that the diver doesn't have the "12", but two hatch marks.

    The concept of CF is definitely 'modern' and is slowly gaining some interest. The Anonimo execution however, with the Carbon Diver (pictured), is not a very good sampling on how CF should be integrated into the design - again, my opinion. It probably would have been marginally better with just a Carbon face (sans Carbon Dial), and even then, this poster will most likely keep the dollar bills saved up for other more interesting models.

    Carbon Diver (Likes):
    - 3, 6, 9, 12 Arabic Numerals (unlike Sailor Diver's two hatch marks for 12)
    - Use of orange
    - 'Marlin-style' hands

    Ok, I was not aware they make carbon diver...As stated above not a great application choice. Still, I think it would be a great choice for Chronoscopio Nero, even Professionale chrono....IMHO

    The Professionale with CF has a chance. I wasn't really sold on the 'waffle' (Professionale GMT), but I think a CF version would work better, if done right. I also agree that it could add a little more 'dimension' to the unassuming, but mysterious, Nero.

    Well said Revangel. My thinking also. Hopefully Anonimo is listening. Dan
