    I think it's time for something Italian. Not a Panerai, but their former partner of theirs. Possibly one of the best case makers. Unfortunately not the same company now. Here are a few from when they were still Italian. Anonimos were different, bold and unique. Most came with a Kodiak waterproof leather strap. Anonimo used many finishing processes on watches like Drass, bead blasting, brush, polish and a few more I believe you can credit the bronze watch trend to them so we'll start with one.

    Anonimo Polluce Magnum Bronze...Note the case uses polished, brushed and bead









    Here is the WayFarer II with the black OXPro (same finish used on Beretta hand guns).

    Next a contender for the most printing on a small dial. The Nautilus (sorry not the PP one). When I first became a serious participant to the Watch forums this was a dive watch legend. Many brands used this German made Fricker case(with a different bezel), but I believe this was the first.

    I think we also need a few Doxa here. Ironically I've never owned an orange one, but I have had a few:

    Sub 5000T Mil Shark




    Sub 750T GMT Caribbean


    Sub 5000T Caribbean




    SuB 1000T MilShark




    I knew I forgot one. Here is the Sub 800Ti. It had GTLS tubes, titanium case and bracelet and the 5000T ratchet adjustment clasp.

    Very cool thread...lots of incredible eye candy being posted up here!

    I'll play with a few of my not-so-often-seen divers from Anonimo, back when they were making seriously killer machined cases in Firenze!

    Thanks Michael! As you already know, the casework from historic Anonimo was spectacular. Sure wish they could have kept a good thing going. (I would still like to pick up a Professionale model sometime. Simply awesome case!)

    Lovin' the content of this thread...Anonimo, Ball, Doxa, Aquadive, Vintage, Russian...all great stuff!
