Description

For sale is my Seiko Brightz Ananta SAEH007 "kakume" inspired automatic chronograph in original bullhead colors. This watch was not a limited-edition, but was only produced for a short time in 2012. I have only seen one listed for sale new, and missed out, then spent the next four years trying to find one (had to use a buying service on a Japanese auction site). You might see a black or blue one pop up, and it's easy to get the PVD black models, but the brown is a true unicorn.
This watch features diashield, zartasu polish, and the in-house 6S28 automatic column wheel chronograph movement, original MSRP was 315,000. I can safely say that you'll probably never find another one of these listed for sale on Watchuseek again. The finishing is totally gorgeous, just look at the rotor in the photos below.Includes: Inner/outer boxes, ricepaper, hardcover Ananta book, manual, and tags and cards. Includes all extra links, I am also including a brand new ceramic bezel for this watch as some of these have had the number print fade off of the bezel, this cost me over $300 to source from a supplier.Condition notes: overall excellent condition with the main signs of wear being some scratching near the bottoms of the lugs as shown in photos, hardly noticeable on the wrist. Bezel does show some number fading, which is why a brand new bezel is also included. Movement is running perfectly and all hands crisply reset to 0.Watch Features:Movement: Seiko 34-Jewel Automatic chronograph 6S28 (self-winding)Case: Stainless steel, 43mm diameter x 14 mm thickBack: Engraved screw-in backCrystal: SapphireBezel: CeramicBand: Stainless steel bracelet, 20mmWater Resistant: 100 metersDiashield coatingThis is hard to price, so I'm asking $2,300 shipped (what I put into this watch) OBO. Payment via PayPal or Zelle. The watch will be sent via USPS Priority Mail with insurance.Search the feedback forum for "walrusmonger" to see my 9 years of positive feedback, with 50+ feedback posts.
