I will be really brief here on my initial impressions with my new Polluce



-Beautiful Wood box with steel hinges, Steel logos Anonimo and Firenze, Leather like interior. Easily the nicest presentation box ive got with a watch...Im guessing thats where a big chunk of the retail price goes.. :)






-Case and Bracelet are well beyond anything I have ever seen, truly handmade, beadblasted type process and brushing too by hand, you know when you hold it thats its clearly made to higher standard than most any other i have seen. I read they can only make like 20 cases per day, which is amazing. Mine is #12 of 299. They only made 150 in Blue i believe so its a very limited edition for sure.

Its stated as a 42-43mm case which is very deceiving as it wears Much larger for sure, takes up a good chunk of wrist and when i hold next to my 45-46mm pieces, I dont see it as smaller...really odd for sure.

Its rated at WR 121ATM on the back and 100ATM on the dial which seems typical for how Anonimo states the WR. I think my Wayfarer 2 also had a slightly diff WR on the front as compared to the back. Has a very oversized crown and a helium release valve which gives it great character for sure. The winding stem feels like a tank,,,,man i have never felt a stem where you have to use some real pressure to turn it etc....although it is smooth, just feels like you couldnt break it if you tried..

The bracelet is just perfection,,,,,i think they retail for anywhere from 500-700 for the bracelet which seems excessive until you feel it. The detail work and the fit and finish is at the top of the game for sure.

My only gripe is that the clasp they chose is a single foldover dual button and rather thin. They really need a heavier clasp IMO and you must really ensure its locked closed after hearing 2 clicks otherwise it will pop open....there goes your new toy down the drain....LOL

Theres just something about the case and bracelet that I cant put into words but when you hold one you will know that its not at all the same as any other case you have held...It is superb...

Here is a great link if you want to see the cases hand made etc and then some pics of mine:

Dial/ Crystal etc:

The dial is just an amazing color of Blue...not too dark nor too light...My gripe is that there is either no AR or little at best which makes the blue color appear washed out in just the right light. Not all the time but just if it hits it just right. The lume is like a torch on all hands and numerals.

IMO when you spend retail of 4k plus on a watch, AR should be a standard feature especially if lower end brands use it on all pieces as well.

I like the CNS and MC logos, although I hav read others dont care for them. I think they add cool character to the piece and when you read about the backstory its even cooler. The story behing the Polluce and the CNS and MC can be found here-

My last thoughts are this.....Amazing Company, Amazingly built watch, Unreal Case and bracelet quality.....worth every dime.......Just needs AR and a heavier clasp and it would be a 100%. With those I rate it a 95%. Will I buy a 3rd Anonimo....Oh Yeah.......

Eric,

Thanks for taking the time (again) to do this!

Ya know . . . I like you because you'll take your brand new (for some a "grail") timepiece and throw it in the snow for pics sake! That's not being afraid to wear your new Anonimo! :lol

It's a great looking, very functional timepiece. So when do you head to points south, to break it in while diving?! :t

I like the watch a lot and I'm jealous!

Congrats, my friend! :c

I know they ain't cheap.

But I really like your watch.

A very handsome timepiece indeed.

I like your taste.

Well built but uncommon, very fine pieces.

Great job.
