Description

Hi all,
For sale I have my Anonimo Professionale, which is, by many, considered the grail for Anonimo collectors, especially on the included OEM bracelet.
It is one of a 299 piece limited edition reference 6002.
The case is a marvel in person which can easily rival any dive watch in terms of ruggedness and finishing. It was designed to be 2000 meters water resistant and it certainly shows. It has an unavoidable presence on the wrist for which I have received more compliments than any other watch I own. It is easy to see why this watch, back in its heyday retailed for around 12k. The waffle dial is beautiful and the applied lume numerals still glow bright in dark. It is a 45mm case. However, I do find it doesn't wear too big on the wrist, I would say it is very comparable to a 44mm Luminor case. I have included a side by side photo against a 47mm Radiomir and the Panerai definitely wears bigger, though the Anonimo is significantly thicker.
Overall, the condition of this watch is superb. The case itself has no nicks or dings or deep scratches. Only minimal hairlines. The bezel has 2 - 3 tiny pin size dings, the largest of which I have tried to capture in one of the pics (around the 1 oclock marker). The crystal is perfect with no imperfections at all. The original metal bracelet is also in excellent condition showing some swirls as pictured and a couple very small nicks, but can all be taken out easily with a polish (if you so wish to do). I am not sure if this ever had additional links but it can fit a wrist of up to 7 3/4 in. The original Kodiak leather strap has seen use but I would say it has a lot of life left in it as these are, like the watch, built to last. The light blue strap I have on it is aftermarket but it just looks perfect with the watch so I will include it as well.
Overall, given its size and age, this watch is in phenomenal condition.
I do not know the service history, but it is running well keeping time within 2 sec per day and the date switching right at 12 o'clock with the chronograph starting, stopping and resetting as it should. Power reserve is approx 40 hours. The quick date set functions as intended. I have not gone diving or into water with this watch and I cannot guarantee its waterproofness and I would recommend a pressure test before you wish to use it in this capacity.
The set includes the watch, 2 straps and metal bracelet, original wooden box, warranty papers and an Anonimo Firenze catalogue featuring this watch.
I am asking $3500 OBRO net to me via paypal overnight shipped in CONUS.
