A diver resurfaces

Anonimo is well known to watch enthusiasts for its robust and sporty watches bearing evocative names – Militare, Nautilo – enhanced with the casual chic touch of its country of origin, Italy. With the 2018 arrival of the Epurato, featuring a softer build and a slimmer 42mm size, the brand clearly placed the emphasis on elegance. It continues in this direction with the Baselworld 2019 launch of a new Nautilo, not only graced with a gentler, smarter look, but also imbued with a vintage spirit. While it contains all the aesthetic codes of the original Nautilo diver’s watch, designed by a naval engineer, this Vintage version goes better with a suit or polo shirt than with diving gear. The elegant sunray-patterned blue dial, simplified unidirectional blue ceramic bezel, brown leather strap, hands and baton-type markers all endow it with an unmistakably classic style. The traditional triangular read-off marked by the accented positions at 12 o’clock, 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock is far more discreet, represented only by double hourmarkers. The screw-down crown naturally remains at 4 o’clock, while the watch is still waterresistant to 200 meters and houses the same automatic movement as its sporting predecessors.
