YouTube via HouseOfRam — April 05, 2010 — "Great Video! Here we see a Seiko watch makers put together an Ananta watch. Amazing! The video shows the many different pieces that make the watch. Please enjoy.
Background: Ananta is a Sanskrit word that means the infinite. When the SEIKO design team embarked on this creation, they were told to build a watch that included the most advanced technology and craftsmanship; 'dedication to infinite perfection'.
The watches engine is Seiko's Spring Drive; a part electrical movement. It uses a mainspring, barrel, automatic winder and stem winding like in a mechanical watch to store the watch energy. The conventional escapement is replaced with a device that Seiko calls a Tri-synchro Regulator to regulate the unwinding of the mainspring.
