At Baselworld 2011, the house of Seiko proudly unveiled its new Ananta Automatic Chronograph Diver’s Watch and Sportura Alarm Chronograph.


The brand’s 130th Anniversary Commemorative Edition, the new Seiko Ananta Automatic Chronograph Diver’s watch employs a 44 mm case. It is rendered in stainless steel with black and rose-tone gold hard coating. The front side of the model is covered by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 200 meters.

The new Seiko watch comes equipped with a black function-packed dial. It indicates central hours, minutes and seconds. Additionally, the display offers a 60-second, 12-hour and 30-minute chronograph counters, located at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock respectively. The date is shown in the aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock.

All the functions are brought to life by a 28.6 mm hand-wound caliber 8R39 movement, designed for diving. Set with 34 jewels, it beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour and supplies a 45-hour power reserve. The movement incorporates a balance spring in the brand’s proprietary SPRON610 alloy with upgraded shock-resistance and anti-magnetism.
