The screw down caseback features an engraving of an ama diver inspired by the iconic photography of Iwase Yoshiyuki, celebrating the ama as one of the oldest freediving traditions in the world. With modernisation, this rich tradition is sadly disappearing. Inspired by their rich culture of the sea, Albany Watches has chosen to celebrate their spirit with the ama Diver.
The heart of the ama Diver is the Miyota 9039, the no-date version of the beloved 9015. This automatic movement is highly regarded for a smooth second-hand sweep, consistent quality and accurate timekeeping. It is a workhorse calibre that will serve you efficiently on your own adventures for many years.
