Good luck!

Yeah I just noticed the 3 and 9 are cut into on the BR01...would go with the BR03 that doesn't have the 3 or 9 but with my large wrist the 01 appeals more. I know what you are saying about the practicality of the phantom but it or this one below (borrowed picture) are probably what I'm going to choose from. I posted about this on another forum and have been contacted by a guy with the one below that lives near me. If it is in claimed condition I'll probably buy it.

As I said, I really like the Phantom. I would go for that!

I was torn on the BR01 vs BR03 question and wound up deciding that the BR is supposed to be ridiculously large and that the BR03 was like a watered down version.

I have a Panerai and I got it in the smaller diameter and have always regretted it. It's supposed to be BIG!

IMO, those things are such eyesores. No offense to anyone who likes 'em. Different strokes for different folks.

They have their place.

Would I own one as my only / everyday watch? Never.

Luckily I have a few watches and the B&R is a nice change occasionally.

the buckle is from strapculture.com

This is my feeling on them as well. I also have never once seen a B&R "in the wild" which also appeals to me. I definitely would not buy it if I was buying it as my only watch.

Can any of you tell me something about the brand Anonimo? The guy I'm meeting to check out the B&R owns a store that sells jewelry as well as Rolex, Breitling, etc etc and said he has 8 or 9 different styles of Anonimo he'll bring to show me as well that he'll part with for 60% retail NIB. I looked them up but seeing a picture of them on a page designed to sell them doesn't do much for me.

nevermind on the anonimos...I just looked at all of them and the last thing I need is another strictly "tool" watch

Quite a bit. You should be able to shower with it without hesitation. Swimming and any water based activities should also be fine. Prolonged submersion if fine as well (the ISO6425 standard requires up to 50 hours in 30m depth). But this does not mean you should be unscrewing the crown while submerged, i.e. changing the time underwater is not good.

If its a chronograph, best to avoid pushing the buttons while submerged unless the case and buttons are designed for underwater use.

The one you need to watch out for is the 30m resistance. These really mean its okay to get wet if you were caught out in the rain.

Yeah gazman is right 100m are fine for everyday stuff but I wouldn't dive with one or plan on doing a lot of water activity with it but with normal use it should be completely fine. The ratings aren't always spot on. I had a watch pressure tested to 400m that was only rated to 200 and it was completely fine afterwards.

Anonimo, or so they claim, picked up the pieces when Panerai in Florence when Panerai made the move to Switzerland. I've seen some of them on display, and can't really say I like it... but you could definitely see some OP influence on their products.

Speaking of OP, I was messing around with my camera phone last night:


HELLO HATORZZ!!!!

This is my first self-purchased watch, 1st generation Casio G-Shock "Mr. G"
