Now, on the spec side of things, the Anchor shares a lot of similarities with the Sea Shark, including:
- Miyota 8215 automatic movement
- 316L Stainless Steel case, 40mm
- Sapphire crystal
- 200m water resistance
- 2 year warranty
Where things diverge is on the styling front – and while I like the Sea Shark, the Anchor really speaks to me – especially in the white dial / orange numerals variant. Of course, this looks very similar to a Deep Blue watch I showcased here, in terms of color scheme, which may be why I like it so much. That said, I feel they’re quite different pieces. Here, with the omission of a timing bezel (fixed or directional), it presents a much cleaner, or dressier, appearance.
This means that the Anchor has some diver heritage to it (in terms of basic style and water resistance), but it cuts a cleaner line that won’t stand out as much in the office, or if you pair it with a suit. This is even more true if you’d opt for the champagne color scheme. Of course, in case your leaning towards forgetting the nautical heritage of the piece – you’ve got the anchor seconds hand.
Frankly, I think this is a sharp watch, regardless of which of the three color schemes you select. And that brings us to the final similarity to the Sea Shark – the price. This watch also comes in at a great $239. So, if you’ve been looking to add a diver to your collection, your choice just got a lot more difficult.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
