I live in New Zealand and we don't have this brand, in fact I've not seen them in Ozzie either.

I've had my eye on a second Rolex, but these watches are starting to appeal more and more.

I'd like something with a plain dial, maybe in bronze.

The research starts here.....

I recommend ALWAYS buying Anonimo preowned. As much as i love them, there is a huge hit you take when paying full retail if you ever try to resell it. They easily lose 50% of their value. Be warned. That said I own 3, love them all bought 1 BNIB from a person who owned it, the other 2 preowned but mint shape.

I agree with Eric. And you could probably use the money saved for a few extra straps. ;-)

I'm sure someone will chime in (eventually) about the benefits of purchasing from an AD, however the resale is sizable enough that most buyers/sellers take notice.

+1 for the secondary market....If you buy new be prepared to lose around 40-50% of the value. If you are adamant about new then you have room to negotiate anywhere between 10-30% in discounts off the MSRP, but it depends on the AD....I bought one used and one new and I don't plan on ever selling the new one....They are fantastic watches, good luck on your decision.

Hi there!

I have not introduced myself on this section of wus as yet, but once my cam is sorted out I'll be doing so!!

Great advice on going pre-owned.. I think that for the price these are the best pre-owned watch on the market... most of them go here in the UK for about £1200. That's a great price!!

I have three Anons... Millimetri black faced on steel, and a Polluce blue dialled on a black case (I want the bronze one badly), and a Wayfarer two. All great pre-worn pick ups.

Great, great watches... I've owned many brands... and this is my favourite!!


Greg.

If you want the latest models an AD is pretty much your only option. If you can live with the older models even BNIB versions are available as most have said.


As I side note there was a guy here that claimed to be an Australian AD, but I have not seen him here in a while.

There is an Australian Anonimo wesbsite at anonimo.com.au. Here in Melbourne my experience shows that the Antiquorum have very limited ranging, but I've not visited Monards who is the other AD.
