This diver’s watch will be officially launched at the upcoming Baselworld, with all the design assets needed to be a must-have this summer.

Showing their hand from the start. With the clear aim of making a striking visual impact. A novice will never tire of looking at the intense, bright, sunshine-filled colour of the Nautilo Vintage. For watch experts, the emotional effect might be a little less, since the blue dial has been one of Anonimo’s main design features for the past 20 years. In any case, the Florentine brand combining Italian sports-style chic with Swiss mechanisms has achieved a great result with a simple dial, and hour and minute hands, along with the indices, coated in lume. So readability is optimal in all lighting conditions. But isn’t this a vital feature for a diver’s watch? To keep all your underwater trips safe, the 42mm-wide cushion-style steel case has also been slightly redesigned for the occasion with watertightness guaranteed down to 200 metres. It is combined with a screwed crown at 4 o’clock and the essential revolving unidirectional bezel made from a blue ceramic insert.

And to make it just as comfortable to wear at a café terrace, when it is time for an aperitivo, as in the depths of the ocean, the Nautilo Vintage comes with a calf’s leather strap fitted with a tang buckle.

Price: 2,290 CHF
