Anonimo unveils a new limited edition of its Militare Chrono in an oxidized bronze case with a deep blue hand-brushed dial.

THE BRONZE AGE

Anonimo was among the first contemporary watch brands to use bronze. This alloy is made predominantly of copper and tin, although other elements can be present. Upon exposure to air, bronze oxidizes on its outer layer causing a different colored patina that consists of copper oxide. This patina will be different for each owner of the watch, creating a truly unique piece that will continue to evolve over time. The Anonimo Militare Chrono is already deliberately oxidized so consumers can see how this living metal will look after time. The bronze case of this timepiece comes in a 43mm case size, is water-resistant to 120 meters and features an open sapphire crystal case back.

A DEEP BLUE DIAL MIRRORING THE SEA

The dial features Anonimo’s traditional layout with the numbers four, eight and 12, reproducing the form of the letter “A” for Anonimo. The dial on the Militare Chrono comes in this deep blue that has been finished using a hand-brushed technique.

THE CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENT

The Anonimo Militare Chrono is powered by a Swiss Made Sellita SW300 automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve. The timepiece also comes with an exclusive oscillating weight and a DD2035M bi-compax chronograph module that features the chronograph seconds in the center and a 30-minute chronograph counter at nine o’clock. It also includes a small seconds counter at three o’clock.

THE STRAP

The strap comes in brown calfskin with the addition of bronze stitching. It is handmade in Italy and comes fitted with an oxidized bronze pin buckle.

The Brand

Anonimo

The company was founded in Florence in 1997 by Federico Massacesi, a number of  years before the revival of the mechanical wristwatch. Ahead of his time, Massacesi’s mission was to develop the watchmaking traditions of Florence by creating a collection of purely mechanical timepieces that would marry form and function in a beautiful way. Luck was on his side when one of Italy’s oldest and most respected watchmakers – Panerai – decided to relocate to Switzerland. Many of Panerai’s watchmakers and craftsman did not wish to follow the brand; instead they joined Massacesi and together they created Anonimo.

In 2003, Dr. Dino Zei, a well known and respected engineer, as well as the X-CEO of Panerai, joined Anonimo and developed the Nautilo collection, the brand’s first diving watches. Anonimo has made a name for itself in the world of professional diving and The Nautilo collection is still part of the Anonimo collection today. Other collections include the sporty Militare collection and the Epurato collection which offers an elegant and more classic look.

To benefit from the watchmaking know-how available in Switzerland, Anonimo decided to move the brand there in 2013. The brand is still very in touch with its Italian roots though.
