When you consider the Italian brand Anonimo , it’s without a doubt that military-enlivened chronographs ( the Militare assortment ) and plunge watches ( the Nautilo line ), both with pad molded cases, come into view. Notwithstanding, things are changing at Anonimo as the brand develops in new ways and extends its extension, for instance with the Epurato assortment – a dressier, more modest and more easygoing assortment. Following this difference in methodology, the Italian brand is currently supporting its presence in the motorsport world with the Anonimo Militare Chronograph WRC Special Edition.
Despite the new procedure, the plan of Anonimo will stay dedicated and profoundly motivated by its roots. The brand was made exactly 20 years prior on the cinders of Panerai. Following the offer of Panerai to the Vendôme Group (pre-Richemont) and its movement to Switzerland, a modest bunch of ex-representatives remained on in Italy and dispatched another brand called Anonimo. This clarifies the pad molded cases, the various references to military or plunging universes and the easygoing stylish Italian touch. Today, the brand is in full development and evaluating new ideas. Subsequent to having introduced the Epurato , a softer and more wearable interpretation of the brand’s famous plan, it’s time for these Florentines to investigate the universe of motorsports and genuine games watches.
Last January, Anonimo reported an organization with the FIA World Rally Championship (a.k.a WRC) and its status as official watch of the occasion on Italian soil – which means for the 7th phase of the 2018 WRC title, which occurred in Sardinia this year, at the midpoint of the period. This new collaboration among Anonimo and the WRC complements the generally existing associations in motorsport, whether it be Moto3 or WTCR, on the various circuits of the world. For the event, the brand additionally revealed its first motorsport-enlivened piece, a strong and striking chronograph: the Anonimo Militare WRC Special Edition.
While the base utilized for this new WRC restricted edition is indistinguishable from most Militare Chronograph watches , Anonimo applies a few notable yet effective plans to make a genuine games watch with a rough motorsport claim. This implies that the ground-breaking and tenderly padded instance of the Militare watches is as yet present, with its powerful 43.4mm breadth however short drags and extremely good 120m water-obstruction. The mark crown at 12 o’clock with its licensed pivot and crown insurance framework is as yet present and, once more, considers incredible comfort, because of the verbalized drags. The chronograph pushers are traditionally situated at 2 and 4 o’clock.
The first and fundamental distinction in regards to the instance of this Anonimo Militare WRC Special Edition is the dark PVD-covered case, which gives a sportier and less military look to the watch (unique in relation to the standard steel or bronze cases). The crown and pushers are likewise covered in dark, with the beginning pusher of the chronograph emphasizd in splendid green – a shading that is repeated all through the watch. The second new element on this WRC edition is the presence of a motorsport-applicable tachymeter scale engraved on the fixed bezel.
The dial is likewise new and dashing focused, with a vertically hand-brushed plan in a pleasant shimmering dark tone. To enhance contrast, the mark 04-08-12 numerals (formed like the An of Anonimo), the lists and the sub-counters are introduced in dark. The hustling look is accentuated by different splendid green accents on the minute track, the 30-minute counter and the focal seconds hand – brilliant green being the official shade of the FIA World Rally Championship.
The motorsport theme stretches out right to the lash, which is made of Cordura-like texture with splendid green stitchings and a leather embed. Much the same as hustling drivers’ suits, this tie is fireproof. The watch is gotten to the wrist with a dark PVD-covered pin buckle.
Powering the Anonimo Militare Chronograph WRC Special Edition is a similar development found in other Militare watches, which means a secluded development dependent on a Sellita SW-300 (a clone of ETA 2892) with a Dubois-Dépraz 2035M module, explicitly produced for Anonimo – without date and repositioned on account of the 12 o’clock crown. This 49 gems chronograph development beats at 4hz and brags 42h force hold. It is somewhat obvious through a dull dim colored sapphire case back with the WRC logo.
The Anonimo Militare Chronograph WRC Special Edition is a special (non-restricted) edition that will be estimated at CHF 5,250. More subtleties on www.anonimo.com .
