    Which would you get?

    If say you could get either one, at the same price, brand new, which would you get and would get more wrist time?

    Polluce Deep Blue on bracelet


    Polluce Bronze orange on kodiak


    The bronze is a lovely addition to my Nautilo bronze, but that orange is loud! I have and orange monster which is my go-to tool watch so I am no stranger to it. That said, have yet to experience an Anonimo bracelet.

    Re: Which would you get?

    Personally I'd get the bronze one just because I'd love to have a bronze cased watch. And I'm not a huge fan of bracelets too.

    Whichever you choose I don't think there's really a wrong choice here.

    Agreed, and I am a bronze junky :D But man that orange is loud. Reckon Anonimo will trade me a black dial for the orange one? :D

    Oh and its definitely going for an AR coating as well after I get it.

    Re: Which would you get?

    I have both exact dials so maybe my impressions might be useful. First, though, you yourself said twice that orange is "loud" which seems to suggest maybe it is too "loud" for you--you know yourself better than anyone, so I wouldn't simply ignore your inner "voices." As for my impressions: Since you do have a bronze Dino, you know you like it, the only real question is, do you like the orange dial A LOT?--I wouldn't buy it just because it is cheap, especially if you would rather have the black dial bronze Polluce--they do turn up fairly frequently, and might be worth waiting for.

    The blue dial Polluce is very attractive, though more average/modest, and looks good on the bracelet, though I think the bracelet goes best with either the black dial or the yellow dial. I have aftermarket straps on 4 of my 5 Nimos, and can't find a place to put the one bracelet that I have, as impressive as the bracelet is.

    If they are the same price, then for me, hands down, the bronze, but you do already have one bronze, and you really aren't sure about the orange, so perhaps the Blue dial makes more sense for you--the bracelet purchased separately is EXPENSIVE, so if the price is low, then the blue dial/bracelet combo makes good sense, especially if you are having some issues with the orange dial.

    I liked my orange dial bronze Polluce so much I ended up getting the black dial bronze as well--make for a great pair. Ultimately you can't go wrong with either. (I might as well throw in the inevitable: Of course, if you can afford it, get both!)

    Don't know why you think you need to have your Nimo AR coated--one of the myths about nimos--unless you work under florescent-light all day long, I doubt you will ever notice a need for it. The only time I have ever seen any kind of problem is on the tiny inner mounted cyclops over the date on my Militare--otherwise I have never once been bothered by reflections. Hope this helps.

    Re: Which would you get?

    Thanks so much for the insights mate. I already have the bronze Dino Zei Nautilo which is a favorite of mine.



    Here's a shot of the Orange Polluce on my wrist;



    I went back to the shop and tried both on and the blue Polluce just at the end doesn't speak to me. Will sleep on it regarding the orange but am very tempted.

    Bronze all the way, I too am a bronze junkie. Although I would recommend you take the plastic wrapper off when you wear the watch, having them on your couch is one thing, but the watch is a whole other issue.
