By TLex ANONIMO first presented their new Carbon Diver at Baselworld this year. As its name implies the Carbon Diver makes good use of carbon fibre not only for its dial but also for its fixed outer bezel; a first for Anonimo, who have yet to use this lightweight and sporty material for any of their current or previous models. The watch is based on Anomimo's entry level model, the 'Sailor Diver'; a watch created with both recreational divers and sailors in mind. Its 42mm x 13.3mm stainless steel case has a water-resistance of 300 meters or 30atm. It houses the Anonimo 01.0 automatic calibre, SELLITA SW200 base.
The Carbon Diver, which shares its case with the 'Sailor Diver' retains many of its characteristics, such as its handset and dial markers. However its 3, 6, 9 Arabic numerals now sport an additional '12'. These numerals have also been enlarged for improved legibility. ANONIMO's decision to use carbon for its dial and bezel came about from a recognition of the increased use of the high-tech material for maritime applications, where it is valued for its exceptional toughness and ultra light weight. Carbon fiber is widely used in shipbuilding and yacht racing.
The Carbon Diver distinguishes itself from other watches in ANONIMO's line of professional divers watches, which are known and loved for their simplicity technical abilities. This is certainly an aesthetic departure for Anomimo, but one that will no doubt find favor among those that appreciate the many virtues of carbon fiber and of course its sporty good looks!
The Carbon Diver will be produced in a limited series of 200 numbered pieces. Please follow the ANONIMO icon at the bottom the post for further details on this or any other divers from their range . . .
