Anonimo Carbon Diver Review

Anonimo Carbon Diver Watch Review
  Anonimo joins a growing trend with the use of carbon fiber. The limited edition Carbon Diver uses carbon fiber for the dial and more noticeably on the bezel as well. Carbon fiber is just plain cool, not sure why, but it marries quite well with watches if used wisely. Anonimo did a nice job with Carbon Diver and it’s use of carbon fiber.
  This watch based off of the Anonimo Sailor Diver, only a few subtle alterations beyond the obvious. The use of carbon fiber on the bezel gives the watch a very playful, sporty look, further complimented by an orange stitch Kodiak leather strap. Besides carbon fiber being a very strong and light material, it’s woven pattern is perfect for giving watch dials a subtle textured looked. Anonimo uses four large Arabic numbers that jump off the dial for easy reading. There is a small date window tucked away at the 3:30 location. Imagine this watch without a date window. W&R would have liked to seen that, granted most people want to have the date displayed on their watch. The Carbon Diver is powered by a Sellita SW200, Anonimo calls 01.0, with a 40 hour power reserve. 
  There are a number of nice things about this watch, limited edition, use of carbon fiber, price point, versatile and in general Anonimo does a nice job with the fit and finish. This watch would make a great sporty addition for that watch collection. 

Pros - Carbon fiber, limited edition, lower price point for Anonimo

Consideration - W&R believes dives watches should have rotating bezels
