It’s been a long time since the main Nautilo jump watch was created by Dino Zei, maritime architect and previous 25-year head of Panerai, two or three new editions have shown up for the late spring. The theme this year is blue, which is fitting for a maritime motivated plunge watch, and they follow the plan invigorate we saw a year ago in conjunction with Anonimo’s twentieth Anniversary. The Italian brand has been genuinely consistent with its cushion case plans for the Nautilo line with crowns at 4 o’clock, however the dials have developed over the long run. The late spring editions bring shading changes to the dials with new ceramic bezels however keep up the straightforward jumper’s device esthetic from past generations.
The tempered steel cushion case is genuinely huge at 44.4mm, however not over-the-top for a jumper and it wears well for a bigger case. Looking at Panerai with a considerable lot of its cases at 47mm and bigger, the Nautilo appears to be reasonably measured. Anonimo has utilized bronze for Nautilo cases before, however the steel contrasts pleasantly with the blue dials this year. A long crown watch drops from the upper right half of the case, halting at the highest point of the crown. It’s an intriguing plan as the base portion of the crown is unprotected. There is a marginally domed sapphire precious stone with against intelligent covering and the screw-down caseback is steel. The watches are water-impervious to 200m.
The first new summer edition has a naval force blue sunray dial with a dark ceramic supplement in the unidirectional, fluted bezel. The dial has the new twofold markers at 12, 4 and 8 o’clock that structure the brand’s particular triangle that we saw a year ago. The date is again at 6 o’clock and doesn’t meddle with the round marker underneath. The files, hour and moment hands are treated with Super-LumiNova®, just like the tip of the seconds hand with Anonimo’s triangle logo as the stabilizer. The bezel has a 15-minute definite scale and the 20 and 40-minute imprints have numerals, shaping another triangle with the top marker that coordinates the dial. It’s a decent attention to detail. The second new edition (not shot here) has a matte blue dial and coordinating blue bezel. The only other visual distinction is a red triangle as the stabilizer on the seconds hand. It stays silver on the first.
The developments for both are a Swiss-made Sellita SW200-1 programmed with a 38-hour power hold. It’s a clone of the ETA 2824 type yet is comparable and a demonstrated workhorse. It has 26 gems, beats at 28,800vph (4Hz) and has hours, minutes, focal seconds and date complication.
The model with the naval force blue sunray dial comes with a blue Italian calf leather lash, while the matte blue model has an earthy colored leather tie. Both sell for a receptive CHF 2,150 and are accessible at Anonimo’s site .
