    Because they are a bit obscure and a bit ugly, generally.

    And now, after the brief detour, back to the OP's question.

    The Anonimo Forum was established a decade or so ago because there were a lot of people interested in the original watches created by the original company--many of which were quite excellent. At that time, there were frequent posts, lots of discussion, and some really great watches. However, about 6 years ago, the ownership changed. Since that time, new models were produced, such as shown above, virtually none of which appealed to those who had followed the original company. From that point on, the forum has limped along, barely, and probably should be closed at some point, due to lack of interest and/or activity. For those unaware, however, I do encourage you to track down and take a look at some of the original offerings--there are some great watches in their history.

    ^ Indeed true, Anonimo did once produce some great designs.

    Ya, I heard things about their after service being wonky, but that's something else.

    I give Anonimo credit for their truly stylish and swanky designs, mass appeal be damned.
    Only an Italian firm / designers could have pulled off those designs.

    Plus their AD support went down the toilet.
