Italian watch brand Anonimo has returned to the ocean waves by sponsoring the SFS II, one of the world’s fastest boats.

Skipper Lionel Péan took the Anonimo team and a number of European journalists out to sea from Marseille to unveil the new Nautilo Sailing edition watch on the eve of the 64th annual Giraglia, one of the most famous Mediterranean regattas.

The new, dual-tone model, matches the yacht’s red and black livery and is equipped with a black tinted aluminium bezel and a steel cushion, DLC-coated case.

Guests took turns at the helm of the 70-foot monohull VOR 70 yacht as well manning the winches and raising sails. Anonimo was established by a group of former Panerai employees in the wake of the brand’s sale to Richemont in 1997.

Anonimo was taken on by Neil Duckworth’s Veritime distribution in the UK shortly before Baselworld.
