Part II of "My coolest Anonimos?" Help me decide....

1. Hi-Dive "Hybrid" - the first Ox Pro Polluce! A rare bird.
2. Militare 2004 - gorgeous, Florentine, military watch perfection - one of the few Anonimo manual wound pieces
3. San Marco! Like a wrist weapon.

San Marco by a long shot :-!

Though I'd be happy with any of them - though manual winding would be a touch irritating for me on a Militare.

?? I don't think I understand the question ("help me decide")--

you own all three watches, and you want US to decide which one YOU like best?

...Or, are you going to get rid of one (or two) and need suggestions for thinning the herd?

...Or, is this, "look at my cool watches--which one do you (the reader) like best?"

If it is the last question, they are all great simply because I really like Anonimo in general--however if I were to consider buying any of them, I would not buy the Militare as, after having owned three, I just don't like having to lift up the strap (like raising a toilet seat?) every time I have to wind or adjust the watch, which is frequently on the manual; I also would not buy the San Marco because (if I could actually afford it) I feel the dial much too busy, and I have no use for, or understanding of, the odd outer dial edge numerals (if I were to get a large Nimo in this price range I would go for the Marlin), leaving me with the Millemetri (the so-called "Hybrid"), which suits my tastes best: Simple, clean, elegant and different.

Somehow, though. I don't think this was not the answer you were looking for. Whatever, enjoy your watches!

Guess it was not really a question, but more a fun statement. Your comments are actually what I was hoping for - just a sharing of opinions on these watches we all love and to celebrate whatever pieces we all own. This is what makes a watch forum so much fun.

I really appreciated reading your preferences. Although my San Marco is my favorite, I wear the "Hybrid" more frequently for pretty much the exact reasons you describe. I'm feeling lucky to have the piece.

great strap combo on all three. definitely brings out each watch's character.

in order of pic, i would identify these as: 1: refined elegance - unpretentious 2: sporty/cool/controlled - take me anywhere and i'll not only adapt but i will master my domain 3: WOW - persona, character, presence, confidence (my choice)

congrats on a great collection!

Thanks! Really interesting descriptions you gave. You pretty much described them as I tend to describe what it feels like to wear Anonimo. Very interesting to read your impressions.

Just noticed in your sig Dane you have a San Marco? When did that happen mate?
Hey Pete, I bought it last week from the 'states and it arrived on Monday. Yesterday was the first day it spent on my wrist - my partner told me off for staring at it while at a comedy show last night... love it.
