The Militare collection by Anonimo was introduced in 2001 and changed frequently over the following years. In 2015, it was extensively revised, and the Militare Automatic is now available in a range of finishes, but all the same overall design. The principal feature of the watch is the crown at 12 o’clock, and the crown protector which is built into the top strap and lugs. You have to take off the watch and fold the strap down to use the crown. As the movement is automatic, you shouldn’t have do it often.
The circular bezel is grooved around the circumference, within a cushion-shaped case 43 mm across and 14.5 mm thick, and a dial reduced to the essentials. The large numerals at 12, 4 and 8 were chosen to reflect the brand’s logo, but also to give the watch a visual feature making it different from other watches. It has a solid caseback. The brand is justifiably proud of the finish of case and strap, now mirrored by the interesting dial texture. The way that the bottom strap meets the case, with no space, gives the watch a solid, well-designed appearance.
The movement is the Sellita SW260-1 self-winding movement, with 31 jewels, running at 28,800 vibrations per hour, power reserve 38 hours.
The watch is available in various case materals – stainless steel, steel with black DLC coating, bronze – and dial finishes – black, grey, blue. Prices begin at €2,550 for the models with steel case, €2,800 for the versions wit black DLC case, and €3,350 for the watches with bronze case. Further information from the Anonimo website.
