Anonimo Chronoscopio – Automatic Chronograph
Mint condition and barely used Anonimo Chronoscopio. Attractive, stylish and distinctive looking watch. Anonimo was founded in Florence, Italy in 1997 by Florentine designer and businessman, Federico Massacesi. His vision was to create a company specialising in the production of unique and high quality Italian watches and remaining true to Florentine watch making form and tradition. That vision has catapulted Anonimo to become the most important Italian company making high quality, unique and stylish wristwatches. This was success was perpetuated by Panerai, an existing Florentine company, being purchased by the Richemont Group. After this acquisition, Panerai uprooted and left Florence leaving an elite and established team of veteran watchmakers wishing to continue their watch making tradition in Florence. This wealth of expertise and skills of former Panerai staff joined forces with Federico to form the cornerstone on which Anonimo’s success has been built. This one is the Chronoscopio automatic winding chronograph. The movement is an automatic winding 25 jewel Valjoux 7750, which is modified to Anonimo specifications by their in house technicians in order to give the symmetrical and evenly balanced up/down sub dial arrangement. The chronograph has a twelve hour elapsed time at the 6 position, thirty minute elapsed time at the 12 position and the sixty second elapsed time is the central sweep chronograph hand. It has a day and date at the 3 position. The watch case is sand blasted and satin finished in the highest grade AISI 316 stainless steel which is laser cut to give highly angular and sharp edges.
