New Seiko Ananta launches, looks sharp


image004Seiko’s coveted Spring Drive movement has previously only been available in Japan, however the new Ananta line will be released in the U.S. this November.

The Ananta is a mechanical watch, hand-assembled in Japan, and inspired by the ancient weapon of the Samurai warrior; the katana. There are two different models in the Ananta line, available in several different finishes. The basic model, known as the SPB017 will sell for $2100. The more advanced (chronograph) version, called the SPS009, will start at $6400. For more information, check out Seiko’s website.

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.

  1. Hi there!

    Just wanted to drop you a message to thank you for putting up the initial part of the SEIKO Contest.

    The results are in! If you would be interested, please drop me an email and i can share with you more information on the winner.


  2. The website’s too ninja. I would have preferred Seiko put out imagery of green tea related material for which I think Japan is more fondly known. When I put on a expensive watch I don’t feel like going to war… Aside from marketing, I see nothing to indicate use of special or precious materials. I wish Seiko and their master craftsman the best. I’m sure they do an excellent job otherwise.
